MERUS Adventure™ Park
in Palo Duro Canyon.

Texas Toyota Takeover is a family-friendly event with fun activities for everyone in the group! 

As the first & only Toyota exclusive event in the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon, Toyota Takeover is well on the way to becoming the premier Toyota event for the off-road and overlanding community.

No matter your skill or your experience, there will be fun for everyone, including guided tours, vendor booths, group meals, and vehicle test tracks. We encourage you to bring your friends and your family and explore it for yourself.

This is the one event you want to make!

The Texas Toyota Takeover is a one of a kind event designed for a premium experience. 

We limit registration to 80 rigs to ensure an amazing experience and connection with other Toyota fanatics, top level customer service and no sitting in lines on the trails. 

Over the last two years this event has become so much fun! From epic sessions on the test track, to amazing trail rides and adventures,  and making lifelong friends around the propane fire pits at night. 

We invite you to come experience the Palo Duro Canyon and Texas at it’s best at MERUS Adventure™ Park. 

What's Included?

Activities, Amazing Food, Camping, Games, raffle & More!

Camping fees are included in the ticket price for the event. Camping will be in a centralized location that provides easy access to vendors, meals, and meeting areas. 

MERUS events are known for their sense of community and we believe that having a centralized camping ground promotes this in a strong way.

If you don’t wish to camp at the main location, you can choose to reserve one of our campsites throughout the park, book an RV hookup site, cabin, or glamping site by clicking the button below!

Bathrooms and shower facilities are available at the office building near the entrance to the park.

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!

questions you may have

The Texas Toyota Takeover has a rig capacity, so we encourage you to reserve your spot early. Registration will close on May 28th. 

Texas Toyota Takeover is an exclusive Toyota event. Lexus brand vehicles are included and welcome! You are welcome to come check out the event, but we will be restricting trail access to Toyota & Lexus vehicles only and the park will be closed to the general public for the weekend.
If you would like to book a trip click here for available dates.

The cost of registration includes camping fees at our designated event camping location. If you wish to reserve one of our specific campsites, RV sites, or cabin/glamping sites, you will need to make a reservation separate from the event registration. Click here to book a campsite.

We have RV hookup sites and boondocking sites available to book separately through our website. First come first serve. RV sites are not included in event price. Book your site here!

Yes, we have very nice clean and welcoming individual bathrooms with showers so you have full privacy! 

We get it, there’s nothing better than gathering around the campfire after a day on the trails. However, MERUS Adventure™ is currently observing a strict fire ban. Propane pits and cooktops are permitted and acceptable. NO WOOD, CHARCOAL, OR NATURAL BURNING FIRES ARE ALLOWED. 

In addition, we ask that smokers be prepared to distinguish their cigarettes/cigars in their vehicle. This park is precious to us and we work hard daily to protect it. If you are found to violate these rules, you will be reminded once then asked to leave the park on repeated instances. 

Our amazing sponsors will be providing some meals for the event. Please check our event schedule for specific details.

Absolutely! What is going to make this event so amazing is the opportunity for a great time for every skill level. Our platinum sponsor, Street Toyota, will be providing vehicles to test drive, a test course to try your vehicle out on, and education on the basics of operation. On top of that, MERUS Adventure™ will be running guided trail runs for those that want to participate. These tours will range from absolute beginner to trail veterans that wants to get after it!

MERUS is so much more than just an off-roading park. We offer world class camping, hiking, mountain biking, and more. 

However, our off-roading is limited to 4×4 vehicles only. This is for safety on everyone’s part. We do encourage 4×2 vehicles to still come out and participate in testing out a 4×4 Toyota and experiencing an incredible event with like minded individuals and groups. 

Absolutely! We love having pets and furry family at the park. The canyon does provide many natural hazards, in addition to the many vehicles at this event. So for the safety of the animal, we do require pets to be leashed and in your full control at all times.

Open alcoholic beverages and consumption are prohibited in off-road-vehicles during use on trails, in public parking areas. Alcohol consumption is allowed in designated camping and event areas only. Violators will be asked to leave the event.
