Close to town, but still very much wild, enjoy the great views. You can camp anywhere you would like. We have wooded areas and flat areas. Plenty of space for privacy, and you are welcome to hike anywhere you like, and our sister organization Wildcat Bluff, right next door, has plenty of trails.

Our camp site at Mariposa was magical! It is close enough to town to easily reach restaurants in just minutes, but also quiet and isolated for a wonderful desert camping experience. Our host was fantastic as well. Although we didn't need anything, she made sure we knew we could call on her if we did. If I'm ever in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Mariposa again!

Sunset at magical Mariposa!

Clear directions, friendly folks, central locational to where I needed to be, beautiful camping spot. Couldn't really ask for much more. The host gave a great restaurant recommendation for the area. Very happy with our experience.

We loved our stay at Mariposa! The host was very welcoming and showed us right to our site. It was close enough to town to run back for supplies but far enough out to where you can hear and see all the wildlife. It was so great!

Really grateful to have found a spot safely tucked outside of Amarillo. There is plenty of room to spread out and make your own spot for the night!

Mariposa is such a great place to camp! I highly recommend you check it out. The site is perfectly private and the views are lovely! It’s not far from the bustling northwest edge of Amarillo, but you wouldn’t know it when you’re at the site. The lights of the city are far enough away to afford enough a good amount of darkness to view the stars at night. A., the owner and main contact, was a wonderful host; after they introduced us to our site they were appropriately hands-off.. Additionally, It was easy to get in touch with A when we needed to. We communicated well and I always received a quick reply. If I’m in the area again, I look forward to booking this site a second time! One thing to note: at night, it’s really easy to miss the Mariposa street sign on the main highway. I passed the sign going both north and south due to the darkness. Once you find the turn-off, however, the gate is right there so there’s no possibility of getting lost beyond that. Overall, the Mariposa campground is awesome. Definitely check it out if you’re in the area. It’s worth it!

Absolutely gorgeous view!! Far enough from the hustle and bustle to enjoy, yet close enough to get what you need from the city. I enjoyed every breath-taking moment! The drive-in site was nice (no hiking to get to the location). Could not have gone any better!
