Fitch Fortress

Campground Star: Fritch Fortress, Fritch, TX

Fritch Fortress Campground in the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area received a 5-star Campendium review for its natural appeal—and superior WiFi.

Fitch Fortress Campground“This spot has been one of our favorites over our years on the road,” wrote reviewer “Technomadia”. “It hits the technomad trifecta: free, scenic, and excellent cellular signal. Whenever we’re passing through the Amarillo area, we always route for at least a couple days here. Stunning cliffside views, amazing sunsets and free for 14 days!”

“While we were here,” (late 2015) “the dump and water fill station was closed—and the bathhouse torn down. Word is, they are putting in a new one with showers.”

“All sites are pull up on the camping loop circle, with a covered picnic table and trash cans. Winds can get high here at certain times of the year. There are only a handful of sites that are level however.”

Fitch Fortress CampgroundLocated about 3.5 miles out of Fritch, Texas on Fritch Fortress Road, this popular dry campground overlooks Lake Meredith and is suitable for RVs, trailers and campers able to boondock. The old boat ramp—now closed for boat launching—allows access to the shoreline for campers and swimmers.

Other camping opportunities at Lake Meredith include shoreline sites and wooded campgrounds—and all are free. No reservations are needed; sites are on a first-come, first-served basis.
