My cousin and I were at Palo Duro for two days of hiking. We enjoyed every aspect of the park, facilities and workers except the Trading Post. 1. The hours were limited. 2. The staff was somewhere between dead-eyed dispassionate and outright rude. Maybe they...were unhappy with each other, but they were not pleasant at all. 3. Coffee wasn't available all day. They have a weird policy of not allowing you to handle the coffee cups without permission.More

We went to Palo Duro Canyon State Park for two days. We took food with us but ended up not eating because we stopped by the Trading Post. Our intent was just to cool off for a bit and look at some shirts; however, the...hamburgers smelled so good that we decided to try them out. They were hands down the best cheeseburger I have had after a hike! I highly recommend that you make a stop here while at Palo Duro Canyon. It is a small place but dont let the line nor the parking lot deter you from checking out this GEM! The staff was super friendly and FAST!More

Great people and they have everything you need. From t shirts, ice cream, camping gear and supplies. Blue bell ice cream after a long hike is nice.

I'm appreciative of the clean restrooms. The Portable Potties outside in the park were totally nasty. Restaurant food is basic, a small selection of grocery items, and a gigantic souvenir shop.

Several people told us to go there and have the cheeseburger for lunch. We enjoyed the cheeseburger & fries! The general store had a wide variety of goods that the average camper and visitor would need. They also had a good supply of gifts and...clothing.More

We had the pleasure of checking in to our glampsite at the trading post. From the word go, they were the nicest people. Our stay at the glampsite was wonderful and the breakfast the next morning was huge! Just what hikers need. If all the...other food is as good I want to go back! Fun gift section too.More

We stopped here for lunch after a hard morning hike & thoroughly enjoyed our burgers & fries. So fresh! Then came back later for ice cream and souvenirs. From the road it doesn't look like much, but it was actually worth a stop. Too bad...flies are such an annoying problem everywhere in this canyon or we would have sat outside.More

Stop in the first time during lunch to grab a couple of t-shirts since our daughter brought nice shirts instead of hiking shirts. It was packed with people grabbing lunch. Went back the next day during the late morning after an early hike. Wasn’t as...crowded. We ordered a couple of breakfast sandwiches that were delicious. Hubby said best sausage he’s ever had. Nice stop for a bite to eat or gifts.More

We did not eat here but came daily to get ice and all the things you forget when camping. Very close to Sagewood Camp Ground and I was glad. Lots of cute nick snacks and they even had an extension cord when I forgot mine.

Had lunch here on a warm day in November so we were able to grab a table outside. Terrific burger! Lunch with a view! Yes, there are a few pesky flies but it’s part of being in nature. Large selection of t-shirts and souvenirs. Great...stop!More

Nice place, nice people......but that’s it......flies everywhere no pest control here....absolutely the worst cheeseburger that after one bite I didn’t eat....small pattie burnt to a crisp, separate bag with lettuce and 2 tomato slices the size of a quarter....just a warning...get a meal somewhere else.

This is the "trading post" in the canyon--it is food and supplies only. There is no show. The burger may have been $8 with the fries and a couple of bucks for a drink. It is a great burger for a low price. This is far... More
