I Been though Dumas several times,but not looking for RV parks.

I Goggled and found a few around the area. Some are on Texas 287 which is a nice highway - not interstate, but nice.

I've been through there a lot. I haven't camped there, but went to Lake Meredith National Recreation Area when I was young. It is probably 30-45 minutes from Dumas. I know they have camping there, but you would need to research how good the camping is now.

I haven't been there, but has you tried the "Allstays" Camp and RV app from Apple? It shows that there is a campground right outside Dumas, and several State Park campgrounds in the area. It's a free app and holds a wealth of information, with a basic overview of the campgrounds along with reviews, phone numbers and links to the campground's website if they have one. It will also show truck stops, Walmarts and the such.

Coming from North Florida hopefully next summer I'll be able to go to Colorado to camp and ride my Electra Glide and my Kawasaki KLR650 dual sport around Pikes Peak area and the mountains of Colorado. I thought I stop in Dumas Texas and see if I'm related to the original Dumas family that originally settled there.
Just one of many things on my bucket list.

That seems like a cool idea for a trip. I take that route from the Springs to Big D regularly. It is better now that they seem done with 87 across NM.

Been through there allot in route to New Mexico and Colorado. Spent overnights at the wal-mart there as it is about 340 miles from home. Seems like an OK town but never stayed at a camp site near there.

We have never stayed in Dumas, but if Amarillo is in your route I can recommend Amarillo Ranch, level gravel spots, full hook ups......GS/AAA/Military discounts.....nice staff

Amarillo is 50 miles south of Dumas.

We have stayed at Amarillo Ranch a couple of times and it's a decent overnight park.

Thanks everyone, just wanted to learn a little about the history of who the town was named after etc. I guess I'll have to go there and research it the old fashion way.
