We stayed here on the way to the Grand Canyon. It was worth the drive south of Amarillo. Facilities were well maintained and the views were incredible.

We stayed here in a Class C Motorhome.

This is a great park to visit, one of the most scenic in Texas! At the entrance you can see a portion of the Texas State Longhorn herd, and visit the visitor's center which has natural and historical exhibits and gifts for purchase. After that, you begin the long, steep, and winding descent into the canyon. You will see the Pioneer Amphitheater were the "Texas" musical is held, the very nice Mack Dick Group Pavilion, as well as the Trading Post, which has food, groceries, gifts, and gasoline.

There are numerous campgrounds throughout the park. We stayed at the Mesquite Camp Area, which is the farthest drive, but also the most scenic in our opinion. The sites have some slope to them, but not too bad. There is no cell or wifi service in the canyon, but who needs them with all the scenery, hiking, and wildlife all around you?!

We really enjoyed out visit and can't wait to go back!

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.

We had a paved, level site...but, no shade. We were there the first week in May and the temperatures were in the 90's. The bathrooms were clean. I enjoyed hiking the trails at the park.

We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.
