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.

I love how quirky Mariposa is. It was fun to see the architecture of the buildings as well as the interesting signage created by a local artist in Amarillo. The terrain is beautiful and is a great spot for hiking. The host has recommendations of where to set up camp but you are free to roam certain areas as desired. If you love picking your own spot to camp, this is your place. The opportunities and options are endless.

There is no where better to bound with friends than in nature.There were no designated camping spots, we originally set up camp here but then decided to move to higher ground to see the view of the plains better.The sunset was on fire.As a local it was really fun to explore my own town. There are hundreds of these mock traffic signs that were created by an artist in Amarillo. It was neat to see some of them as we entered the property. They're dispersed all around Amarillo.

We loved our stay at Mariposa! The hosts showed us to our camping site and we pitched our own tent. The sunset is a must see!

Very nice host! I've camped my entire life and it is always helpful having wonderful hosts. I think the campsites could use better development (e.g., more leveled ground) but other than that it is great location for camping and watching sunsets.

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!

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!
