It was hard to get excited about a campground that everyone calls a parking lot, and it’s definitely a parking lot, but we liked it for what it was. We used the afternoon we arrived to get a hike in, most hikes start steps from your site, and the second day to tour Carlsbad Caverns, one of my favorite National Park experiences ever.... more

“Nice tent sites ”

Reviewed Mar 14, 2019

Overall Rating

Paved road to the tent sites with most sites having a very short walk in. A few sites you can park right next to the site. The sites are close to each other but are well buffered by vegetation, making it obvious that this campground was designed for tents and not just an RV campground with tent sites on the edge. Choose a site then pay... more

“Beautiful Views.”

Reviewed Mar 08, 2019

Most other reviews are accurate. It's a parking lot, however, we did manage to get a back in site with some gravel to the sides of us. We have a 25' Travel Trailer and had some room to spare, but had to park our truck in the parking lot. Power was down to the Restrooms, but they brought in power to run the water pumps.

“Hiker’s Paradise - Great Tent Spot”

Reviewed Feb 01, 2019

Overall Rating

This is the rare campground where the tent camping is much better than the RV section. The sites are not pull in, but you can choose a site 10 feet from the parking or you can choose to walk a bit for more privacy. We chose the latter and got an amazing view of the mountain and what felt like solitude. We used another, closer to the ca... more

“Simple parking lot, but the mountains are worth visiting. ”

Reviewed Dec 28, 2018

Overall Rating

ATTENTION: closest gas station 40 miles away in Dell City (when traveling West). The “camping” is actually just a parking lot with numbered spaces that aren’t quite RV size. We were disappointed in camping on a parking lot, but the mountains are worth it. Be sure to catch the sunrise ... just walk a few minutes up the highway an... more

“It's a parking lot, but it is in a great location”

Reviewed Dec 05, 2018

Overall Rating

It's a parking lot. Literally. There are a few picnic tables in the outer sites for smaller RVs and vans, but it doesn't really feel like a campground in any way. That's ok, though. It's in a great location, and aside from the lot itself, it's very scenic. You're nestled in the Guadalupe Mountains, and the light hitting them in the mor... more

“Quiet campground in a beautiful national park”

Reviewed Feb 19, 2018

The Campground at Pine Springs in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park is partially primitive. There are about 20 RV sites that are in a parking area. Some of the sites have picnic tables and no hook-ups. This is a first come, first served campground, no reservations accepted. There are restrooms with flush toilets, no showers, and a ... more

“A busy asphalt parking lot (unless tent camping)”

Reviewed Nov 20, 2017

Overall Rating

This is the only nearby camping option for visiting this pleasant national park but it is literally an asphalt parking lot. The tent area is only for tents (not small RVs). Fortunately we had a spot on the end with a nice view, however, your neighbors are way too close. Their conversation is your conversation. A couple generators were ... more

“Great Park with RV parking lot”

Reviewed Nov 06, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a great National Park with some amazing hikes. The RV Campground is just a parking lot with no hook-ups and no dump station. However, views were great and access to all the great hikes. As you enter the RV Campground (parking lot) the first area is pretty flat. If your rig is under 25 foot, there are several back-in sites a... more

“Very basic campground but access to a great park”

Reviewed Jun 01, 2017

Overall Rating

Wonderful access to one of my preferred National Parks. Campground is basically a parking lot without any hookups. Bathroom are clean without showers. If needed, there is a water faucet to fill your jugs and a sink to wash dishes. But it is right at the head of some really exciting trails. Do not miss this park if you are in the area.... more
