We are going to Palo Dura Canyon in June and were looking for a RV Park with 50 amp, water, sewer and cable tv. Decided to stay in Amarillo. I looked at the reveiws on Oasis Rv Resort, and Ft Amarillo RV Resort. Neither of their websites have pictures of the rv spaces. We have a 39 ft fifth wheel and need a large site. Has anyone stayed at either of these if so please let me know what you think.
If you're doing Palo Duro Canyon, you won't go wrong with all the hiking and biking. We stayed at Palo Duro RV Park. It was a little better than what was reviewed. They had pull thrus, wi-fi, and cable. We stayed for a week and had a fantastic time at the state park. The main thing was the RV park was extremely convenient to the state park. We also did the museum in Canyon. We went to Amarillo several times for dinner and shopping. Don't forget to get your big steak while there in Amarillo. Good Luck
We live in 120 miles from Amarillo but doctors and shopping keep us on the road. at times we pull RV to Amarillo and stay a few days. We tried Oasis a number of times, but just too much wind and heat. It is very modern, with perfect hookups, but too far west of Amarillo. We prefer Fort Amarillo. Very friendly people wonderful gift shop. They also have a neat little park for kids and any body to just sit and rest. You might reconsider and stay in the Canyon. I did one time and it was great. I think you will need reservation for the Canyon.

We just got back from Amarillo and we stayed at Ft Amarillo. It was nice people were friendly. I would stay there again. Oasis was our second choice but we decided we wanted to stay closer to town. It is an older park but still nice.

We stayed at Fr.Amarillo a few years ago. Lovely campground, large spaces, full hookup. They have a central pond where my then 7 year old granddaughter caught her first fish. Nice restaurants rather close by, you need to drive. I'd go back there again.
We stay overnight at Ft Amarillo RV on the return from our annual trip to Colorado every year. And plan to do it again this year. Spaces are nice size with a short wall/fence between each site. 39' will be no problem.
But watch out for the gift shop. It may cost you more than your site.
We stayed in Amarillo in late April over Easter at Amarillo Ranch, very close to restaurants, Wal-Mart. The staff was great at the Amarillo Ranch. I have read that the train and I-40 close by caused some people problems but I was not bothered. It could be because my husband has a CPap and causes 'white noise'. We took a day drive to Palo Duro but it was on on Easter Sunday and it was packed we had a 1/2hr wait in line just to drive in. The hill in is quite steep so I was personally glad we didn't tow in. It was very hot and dry with no rain in the area, but very beautiful and looked like it would be fun on a non-busy day. We visited the national Quarterhorse Museum. It was only about 2 miles max from the park,very interesting and great architecture.

We stayed at Ft Amarillo and had no problem with our 40' rig. Nice place, friendly folks, kid friendly. Only problem we had was getting back on eastbound I-40. Either we missed the signs or there weren't any...
