Desert camping near Amarillo guide

Overview

Set between the plains and the desert, historic Amarillo has plenty to explore. From your RV park or tent site, you can explore Route 66 and the quirky Cadillac Ranch. Or, go all Wild West with a ranch camp and a horseback ride through a canyon. With 250 sunny days a year, it’s always camping season.

Camp among rugged red-rock canyons in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Book pull-thru RV sites with partial hookups, or hike into primitive tent sites. You can even rent stunning stone cabins on the canyon rim or floor. Hike and bike 30 miles of trails, or take a guided ride from the on-site stables.

Enjoy a little luxury at the Amarillo RV parks near I-40. Many come with free Wi-Fi and dog parks to keep the whole family happy. Or, choose a private Western camp with ample space for your big rig.

For a respite from the hot Texas sun, head to the 11 campgrounds at Lake Meredith. Most of these National Park Service campsites are free; many have picnic tables and boat ramps. Hikers love the trails near Harbor Bay and Mullinaw Creek. If you want peace and quiet, remote Chimney Hollow is your best bet.
