  • I came across this place when I searched National Parks and other parks under NP in Texas that we could visit for free with our NP pass. Located to the northeast of Amarillo, I think this place is int...  more »
  • This is tucked away. We kind of wondered if gps was confused. Keep going. It is really a lovely park full of history. Jacob gave us a tour outside and I don't think there is anything he didn't know! T...  more »
  • We arrived late in the day, so we didn't get to take a tour, but we still got a real flavor for the place. This is where native americans got flint for a large portion of the United States. You really...  more »

  • For the last 13,000 years or so, this is where folks in this part of the continent got their tools - arrowheads, hammers, scrapers, etc. Thus, this is more of an intellectual destination than many national parks and monuments. The natural beauty is fine, but folks go primarily because of the place's historical significance. I'll add that this place is up to the national-park standards; everything perfectly clean, great architecture, excellent little museum, extremely helpful park rangers, and great guided hikes. One highlight: holding rocks which were handled by artisans long millennia ago. That's something which is hard to find elsewhere in this hemisphere.
  • Wonderful area to explore with a free guided tour from a ranger or volunteer. Whether interested in prehistory, geology, or nature, the guides are knowledgeable. I suggest you call ahead of time to get your place on the tour since they only give so many tours per day and you can't go to the quarry unguided.
  • Surprisingly fun. The guide was wonderful, just make sure you call in advance to make sure they are doing tours.
  • The area surrounding Lake Meredith is stunning for the Texas Panhandle. The Alibates flint quarry is a wonderful place for a day trip and is truly an escape. We love going.
  • These Quarries are ancient Native American Flint quarries. So cool a new dig will begin this year 2014 hope new discoverys are found.
