Did You Know About This Outdoor Adventure South Of Claude?
A lot of us have spent the past several months itching for the opportunity to get outside. The spring and summer months are upon us, and those of us craving time outdoors are about to have our fill. While we all haunt the usual spots, there are some I'm just now learning about.
For instance, don't forget about the MERUS Adventure Park this year.
There's A Lot To See And Do Around Palo Duro Canyon
It's easy to believe that your experience with Palo Duro Canyon begins and ends with the State Park. You'd be forgiven for it. It's what a lot of people think of when it comes to Palo Duro Canyon.
There is, however, so much more.
The Palo Duro Canyon is second in the nation only to the Grand Canyon. It's massive. While I love spending time at the State Park, sometimes you want to explore something new.
MERUS Adventure Park, Palo Duro Canyon
Southwest of Claude is a place that gives you access to a little different view of the canyon than the one you are used to at the State Park. The MERUS Adventure Park is roughly 6,500 acres of land along and in the canyon.
Their website offers up a platter of everything an outdoor adventure lover is looking for.
There's a lot to explore. Plenty of camping areas for whatever your camping style is; from tent and overland to full blown glamping.
They also signed a deal recently with Midland Radio. This deal is going add an extra layer of safety for guests who want to get out and explore. Midland Radio will be providing the park with GMRS radios. Midland Radio will hosting a variety of events, and there will be discounts for MERUS members on Midland Radio products.
If you're living the Jeep life, they've got you covered. If you want to hike and explore caves, they've got you covered.
MERUS Adventure Park Is Officially On My "Must See" List For This Year
I keep a running list of all the sights and places that people tell me I need to see. It's carefully curated so that when I leave town, I'm sure to make some memories. While most suggestions I've been given haven't been a total bust, I'm still careful about what I spend my gas money on.
MERUS Adventure Park seems like it would be well worth the trip, and I'll probably spend at least two full days out there exploring.
There's a lot to take in here in the Texas panhandle. Get out an explore a bit this year. Whether it's at a State Park, National Recreation Area, or an adventure park that just so happens to exist southwest of Claude.
