Amarillo KOA
Reviewed October 5, 2011

I camped, so I am leaving sleep quality and Rooms blank, as they did not apply, and are really affected by your own gear, more than anything to do with this property. That said, we did hear trains blaring horns at several times during the night, so something to keep in mind if you are a light sleeper, it is close enough to the train tracks to potentially be disruptive.

The description on the AAA camping guide was mis-leading, saying that it was in a secluded area, and the houses we passed on the way to the entrance from the highway did, as one other reviewer noted, look a little dodgy, but it was a quiet location, and safe.

When calling ahead to make the reservation, I was advised that "the steakhouse could send a car" to pick us up for dinner, and I wish a little more information had been provided on this. It was for the Big Texan steakhouse, and it was an awesome experience. As we didn't know the name of the steakhouse, we decided not to pursue it at that time.
After driving all day, I wish I had been told it was such a good restaurant, we would certainly have taken advantage of the free-drive, but oh well! It was easy enough for us to find by car.

Everything was clean and well laid out, and the campground staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again if passing through Amarillo.

Everyone working here was really nice and polite. Very organized. The grounds are very clean with plenty of room between sites. They have the most amazing area for the dogs called Kamp K9. There are many pull thrus along with "Kabins" and tent sites. There is a very well kept pool and play area for the children. They also have a basketball court and rent these crazy three wheeled bikes.
They will also make a reservation for The Big Texan limo to pick you up for a very interesting dinner experience. A must do while there but reserve the pick up right away as they fill up really quickly. Be ready for an hour wait once you get there. Its worth going to check this restaurant out! Plus if just passing through for one night you won't have to unhook your tow car or camper! Was great!
They also have a really well stocked gift shop.

I stayed overnight and pitched my tent on the gravel sand pit provided.

Although it looked a little dodgy (sketchy for non-Australians) on the road to the entrance, I felt very safe here.

The grass on the tent sites had died, but the trees were relatively shady. The pool was a great place to cool off, but needed a bit of a clean.

The modern shower block opposite the pool was fabulous. Very clean, large showers with those little seats built into them, plenty of change room and places to hang or stow your belongings. The lights and fan operate on a timer system. Only drawback was the cheesy music being played over the stereo in there.

They had an evening hayride which looked like super fun for the kids even though it was just a tractor pulling a wagon with hay bales and playing loud songs (like Cotton-Eye Joe) around the campground a few times.

Unfortunately it's within earshot of a railway crossing, so all the trains (at all hours) will blow their horns and the sound travels to the campground. Perhaps it's not so loud if you're in an RV.

If you stay here, make sure you get the password for free WiFi when you check in. I had two other groups of campers come and ask me for the password when they saw me on my computer (after the office had closed at 8pm) but each password is only good for one device.

Stayed on the way out to New Mexico and on the way back. Rented a pull-through site and never even had to unhook from the truck. One our first visit we had the grandchildren who loved the kids area. My little yorkie enjoyed the dog park. On our second visit we had a "free" limo from the Big Texan Steakhouse pick us up right in front of RV and return us after dinner. Hosts were very nice with a very extensive gift shop that I wish I had time to have shopped. Very clean- yes it is near the airport and you do have to pass by a couple of strip clubs to get there BUT we will stay here anytime we have to drive through Amarillo.

Our familiy had its first reunion at Amarillo KOA because it was centrally located for families coming from California, Texas, Missouri, and Maryland. The KOA owners (Tim and Bobbi) and staff were great and provided us with lots of attention and activities during our three day event. The campground was very nice with very clean facilities. There was more things to visit and do in Amarillo that we expected. We'll definately go back!

We had 8 in our camper, 5 of which were kids 12 to 3. They enjoyed the pool, playground and hayrides. The park is clean and employees are wonderful.
