Camp Don Harrington, named for its donor, was first opened in 1945. This 1600 + acre property is located in the west section of the Palo Duro Canyon in the Texas Panhandle just 10 miles south of Amarillo on south Washington Street (FM 1541). It is on the Prairie Dog Fork of the Red River.
The camp has 12 campsites. The camp is open year-round for weekend camping. Other camp features include a new full dining hall and kitchen, two large swimming pools, bike trail, archery, rifle and the best and largest shotgun range in the area. The large lake offers canoeing, rowing, and excellent fishing.
Another exciting feature is the Ropes Challenge Course (COPE) including low and high elements. A popular attraction is the “swinging bridge” over the lake. A four element Cub World is also available including a teepee, a fort, a castle, and pirate ship.
