Reviews were mixed but we saddled up and drove from Canyon to Elkins Ranch and easily found it just before entering Palo Dura Canyon. This seems to be a one man show and we stood around for a few minutes when a lady came out...More

Located just outside the Palo Duro Canyon state park entrance, we took the 3 hour tour for $65 per person. It was worth every penny. Bring cash. They don't take credit cards. There were four of us and a guide in an open modified suburban....More

Unfortunately this is the first time since we started traveling that we did not agree with other viewers. We opted to give Elkins Ranch 2 stars bc the views were great and our tour guide Bill was personable. "Jeep Tours" were actually 90 model suburbans...More
