The state of Texas is known for its mesmerizing natural attractions. One of the most exciting ones is, undoubtedly, Palo Duro Canyon. This is an 800-foot deep, 20-mile wide, and 120-mile long canyon that stretches from the town of Silverton to the town of Canyon. It's also part of Palo Duro Canyon State Park, one of the biggest state parks in the Lone Star State.

Just 25 miles south of Amarillo and 12 miles east of Canyon lies this breathtaking 20,000-acre expanse which draws outdoor enthusiasts from all over the country to relax, unwind, and soak up the amazing scenery. The park itself is mainly situated on the southern high plains, home to a shortgrass prairie along with a variety of plant life, such as juniper, cottonwood, hackberry, yucca, paperflower, and much more.

Nature lovers should treat themselves to some state park RV camping in this awe-inspiring locale. All you have to do is pack your bags, book an RV in Randall County or Tulia, and set out to experience some of the best scenery Texas has to offer.

Getting Outdoors

Palo Duro Canyon State Park is easily one of the most popular destinations for motorhome camping enthusiasts in Texas. Many park visitors are keen to catch a glimpse of Texas' own "Grand Canyon." Thrillseekers will find plenty of outdoor adventures as well.

Hiking and camping with an RV are at the top of the list of the most popular activities in the park. More than 30 miles of hiking trails ranging in difficulty and length wind their way through this sprawling area. Horseback riding and mountain biking are also fan favorites.

A 1,500-acre area is allocated specifically for horseback riders.

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
