The Grand Canyon of Texas, Palo Duro State Park
My First stop here in Amarillo was to Palo Duro Canyon. I was mesmerized. What an unbelievable awe-inspiring site to take in. You can easily spend a week there and see something new every moment. Here are some things to do.
Explore the canyon by foot, mountain bike, horse or car. There are more than 30 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. Camp, study nature or bird watch. During the summer, enjoy a performance of a TEXAS Outdoor Musical.
Choose from campsites with water and electricity, tent sites, equestrian sites, or backpack camping areas. Stay in one of three cabins on the canyon’s rim or four Cow Camp cabins on the canyon floor. Rent one of their pavilions for a wedding, reunion or meeting.
Stop by the Visitor Center on the canyon rim to learn more about the park. The park store at the Visitor Center sells books, pottery, jewelry and more. Look for souvenirs, snacks, and meals at The Trading Post on the canyon floor.
Visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park and experience the canyon's rugged beauty and enjoy its colorful history.
Park Hours are daily from 7 AM to 10 PM
