Amarillo camping

Next Friday will be rolling through Amarillo with two buddies on the way to Colorado. Two of us have small enclosed offroad campers and one of them will have a trailer with a roof top tent. Does anyone know of a safe place in the area to camp. Really just need a place to lay our head and be out by 6 am the next morning. Problem is we may not make it up there till about 8 pm. It will be at least a 12 hour drive.


Any advice on the area would be greatly appreciated.

X2 May be a couple miles out of your way but worth the stop Maybe some of the Amarillo bunch could stop by and show you all around.

It is a good safe area? Is it quite or one of loud all night places? We will have 4 kiddos between the three of us and look to be heading out pretty early. Would like some good sleep

Ought to be plenty quiet if you pull off the road a little bit. Safe as anywhere else here, do you carry a pistol?

I have slept in Lake Merideth State Park in my truck with no worry of trouble before.

You can sleep at the river without much issue or if you would rather you could park in front of my house. Either way if you need anything then just holler.

If you're going through Dumas there's also a small free rv park at the west edge of town that's patrolled pretty frequently

Dumas may be a bit out of our way but I will look into it just in case. Kind of thinking of camping at Palo Duro. Anyone done that? Price is right. $15 a night for a tent lot with 3 on it. Looks like they close late too.
