This is a very small parking lot campground for RVs. However, we would have loved to stay for a couple of nights. Only two sights were open & we wouldn't fit into them. We arrived at 2 PM. Maybe we were a bit too late. So disappointed. I gave it a 3 because it is so very small and is... More

"Campground" is maybe an overstatement, but it WAS convenient to Carlsbad Caverns. For RVs, it was basically an asphalt parking lot with campsites delineated with white paint. Dry camping only. Not sure what it is like all season long, but when we were there in April the wind was crazy strong! Four "stars" after that intro? Well, it is a... More

I stayed in campsite #16. It was close to the parking lot so I did not have to spend too much effort dragging my stuff over. Not much privacy but the views were awesome. And I was close to the bathroom. There was a lot of noise from the highway. It does get crowded when the weather is nice so... More

We spent the Halloween weekend there, which is a busy weekend in the park. We got there early and found a nice site, but there were many that came later and had to find other accommodations. The campsite, in general, is not the most private, but there are some tall shrubs that help a bit and it is scenic. At... More

My first time at the park. I was plesently suprised at the tent facilities camping sites. They are well maintained, level sites with fine crushed white stone, and a stone or metal picnic table. There are 20 tent sites with some sites where parking is quite close and a few that are more secluded, less than a minute or two... More

I like the fact that the tent sites were back further from the parking lot. Sure, we had to haul our stuff, but it felt a bit more primitive that way. The hiking was great, the bathrooms were quite clean, and the staff was very helpful. There were no showers, but I tend not to care about showers when I'm... More

Everyone should know that these tent sites, while beautifully landscaped, are walk-in sites. Means you must park your car and carry everything to the site. We arrived just at dark, set-up, ate, went to bed. Later, more campers arrived and set up past our site--they made no less than 20-30 trips to their car, walking right by our tent, on... More

This was the best park I have ever been to. I stayed May 26-27, 2014, the views were wonderful, the hiking was great, and the staff was extremely helpful. I want to come back ASAP! The only problem was the shower situation... there were none. To me, it would be worth it to buy an outdoor shower from Cabelas.

I visited the park to motorcycle-camp, do some birding, and hike Guadalupe Peak. I arrived at the visitor’s center on Thursday afternoon, June 30th, and after checking in rode the short distance to the Pine Springs Campground to find most of the 20 tent sites available and picked #15. It had a level tent pad and medium sized tree that... More

Dry camping only, but there is a place to fill up your water tank by the registration board. The "campground" for RVs is actually a blacktop parking lot. When it gets hot, the blacktop "melts" and wheels can leave gashes in it, and the blacktop gets stuck in the grooves of your tires. Beautiful scenery from every RV spot. I... More
