“Experience Palo Duro Canyon up close and personal”
Activities include camping, horseback riding, hiking, nature study, bird watching, mountain biking and scenic drives. While in the park, stop by and enjoy the Visitor Center located on the Canyon Rim. This rustic native stone building was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1934 and houses a Museum and Museum Store. The store is located in the Visitor Center and features books, pottery, jewelry and educational items pertaining to the canyon. Experience Palo Duro Canyon up close and personal, the way the cowboys did: on horseback. The equestrian-use area covers approximately 1,500 acres of the park, offering trails strictly for equestrian use. Other trails within the park are shared with hikers and mountain bikers. Visitors may bring their own horses. (Original Coggins papers are required.) Two large trailer parking areas are located at the designated equestrian campground near the Equestrian Trail, with six primitive campsites and a corral and water nearby. Visitors must provide their own water buckets for horses.
Are you a horse riding fan and looking for some cool places to share with your beloved horse ? Then the Sagebrush Campground is the ideal place for you.
Generally this is a place where you can actually combine loads of outdoor related activities, such as horse riding, camping and a great place to bring your kids to make them get familiar with nature. A great place for meeting new friends and a great place to feel for a couple of days like a real cowboy !!!!
Located conveniently close to the location of the "Texas" show. Nice site. If you camp in a wider RV, I recommend this one, as the road is under construction further in.
Stopped here for a day and tent camped for one night on our way from Ohio to the Grand Canyon. This was actually a really great stop because the Palo Duro Canyon is the second largest canyon in the United States second only to the Grand Canyon. It takes a little while to get there from the interstate and from Amarillo. As you drive you wonder how there is going to suddenly be a huge canyon in the middle of this flat, barren landscape. Then all of a sudden it starts getting hilly and there's Palo Duro Canyon. Sagebrush Campground is nice. It's at the bottom of the canyon. Very, very hot in the summer. Nice site with a fire ring and covered picnic table. We had wild turkeys come into our campsite to drink water from under the faucet. Restrooms were nice. We didn't use the showers. We drove the scenic drive. The canyon is beautiful. After we setup our tent a dust storm rolled through which was crazy. Kind of like a thunderstorm in Ohio except no rain just wind. Here's our video of our visit. https://youtu.be/jq7lKJ_9U3o
Also ZERO phone signal in the campsite, you will need to drive to the top of the canyon to get signal.
This campground is very beautiful, the bathrooms are well maintained and new, the camp store is awesome with lots to shop from for gifts and camping needs. Only down fall is the electric hook up is hella far away from the area designated for your tent, so expect to bring a 100ft or larger extension cord should you need it. Other than that, the camp ground was great.
Great spot for camping if you’re heading west on 40 and want a nice place to hang your hat for the evening. Make sure to get there early as the gates to the park close around 10pm and most sites were taken when we arrived at 9:15 on a Tuesday.
