Not only is ‘mesquite’ an awesome word, it’s also an awesome campsite! At the southernmost end of Palo Duro Canyon State Park, these 20 sites sit near the equestrian camp (giddyup!), restroom/shower facilities, and 10+ miles of trails. Each site boasts a picnic table, water and electric hook-up (30/50-amp), and fire ring/grill. Some sites accommodate up to 60-foot RV’s on a first-come, first-served basis, so get your rig in there early.

Palo Duro Canyon is a hidden gem. We enjoyed hiking and then taking in 'Texas' at the amphitheater. The show is not to be missed. Our girls, who were six at the time, were completely engaged the entire time. The canyon is beautiful. We hope to camp in one of the old cow camp cabins on our next trip.
