The Escape You've Been Searching For

Nourish the Adventurous Spirit™

Leave the Crowds Behind

Spacious.

MERUS Adventure is located in Palo Duro Canyon on one of the most rugged and beautiful ranches in the state of Texas.  The views and terrain is something you won’t be able to get enough of while visiting the park. It’s a truly epic experience   

Scenic.

We’ve done extensive work to design a world class trail system that gives you the true feeling of being in the deep back country. Trails are mostly  hand built although we have a few machine built trails and they are all built with MANY obstacles to give you amazing thrills at every level of experience.

Secluded.

We don't allow UTVs, ATVs or motocycles. Giving you a peaceful and quiet off-road and overlanding experience without worrying about people racing around you all day. 

Exclusive. Breathtaking. Pure.

We had an amazing time exploring Merus. Molly was wonderful in directing off-roading novices with kids to the best parts of the park. My kids (ages 3 and 6) had a blast both in the car and exploring Elon's Mars on foot. We will definitely be back and plan to stay longer next time!

I did an intermediate tour and it was fantastic. Lots of interesting and challenging obstacles in a beautiful location. Our tour guide Jeff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We stayed in one of their cabins and everything about the cabin was great. Comfortable bed, great shower and bathroom, and it even has Heat and AC. Would definitely stay here again and do the intermediate tour again.

AMAZING place! My husband and I went to camp out of our truck bed and do some off-roading. The guided trail tour was the highlight of our trip. Whether you are experienced in technical trails or just a beginner, these tours are a sure way to have an awesome day with others who love adventure and challenges as well! The Merus community is kind, helpful and fun, made the trip up from Houston totally worth it!

Great camping spot! The views to the canyon from our site were gorgeous. Got to see sunset and sunrise. The staff was super helpful with making our reservations and moving it up a day. Definitely recommend this camping spot. You do not need to off road to enjoy it. We will be coming back.

We stayed in an Arch Cabin at MERUS Adventure for the first time and what a wonderful stay we had. The cabin was well equipped with everything we needed! The staff provided 5 star service and nothing compares to the views of Palo Duro Canyon from the large deck!! Could NOT ask for a BETTER experience!!

I brought my son and 3 friends for his 17th birthday. We camped at site F on the rim of the canyon and the view was breathtaking!!! The office staff were so friendly and informative. There are two bathrooms behind the office that are like legit home bathrooms, wonderful shower head, super clean. We will definitely be coming back and we have several friends and family members who will be visiting as well!
