Back Country Camping - For dispersed camping in Palo Duro you are required to start in the equestrian area then hike in for a least 30 minutes. Start hiking up on the bluffs if you can. You can also hike in on the stream valley, but it was very dense with brush and grass. Snakes are a concern so come prepared. On top of the bluffs we found ample spots to pitch a tent. Access to water is an issue in the backcountry since the stream may not have much water. For back country camping pack it in with you. Amenities in the canyon: rest rooms with showers, restaurant, store, campsites with hookups, horse riding, a musical play
