amarillo rv ranch is the busiest rv park we’ve been at since we hit the road. there were people checking in from morning till evening. amarillo is definitely a crossroads for a lot of people and they’re all staying at this park, us included. although we didn’t find a ton to do in amarillo this park offered a great opportunity to catch up on day to day stuff. and, huge perk.. they have phenomenal internet service and great cable which means we got to catch up on some tv time (like the last 5 episodes of raising hope.. so funny!) and didn’t even feel guilty about it because it was super duper windy and there wasn’t much to do in town anyway.
the park itself is a flat grassy/dirt park, all spots are pull through, the clubhouse has a big indoor pool, the laundry facilities were great and the front desk volunteers were extremely friendly. if you have kids, the waterpark (in above photo) is about ten steps out the front gate. the bathrooms were large with the largest individual shower stalls thus far, so nice to turn around and not hit the wall of the shower..it’s the little things. another bonus, they take passport america (for two nights) and we think other club discounts as well. we would definitely stop here again if we pass through the texas panhandle. clark & ellen give it a paws up!

we had one good (translation..non-windy) day while in amarillo, we sat in the sun enjoyed blue skies and got a birds-eye view of the air force doing some sort of training or testing (the plane circled about ten times). i think they were catching up on some tube time on that big satellite… catching some of the final shows of oprah…which i am missing! how i watched her show my whole life and then the final season i miss.. not fair!
