“RV camping area is just a large parking lot. But it’s a parking lot with fantastic views in a great location to hike and explore Guadalupe Mountains National Park.”

Reviewed Mar 13, 2017

Overall Rating

All the sites at Pine Springs are first come/first served. During the busy season, get here early to snag a spot. As noted, the RV area is a paved parking lot, but the tent area looked very nice. There is a restroom, but no showers. No dump station, but water is available although you won’t be able to fill your tank even with a water ... more

“Great views and hiking in the Guadalupe Mountains”

Reviewed Jan 10, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 4 days over the New Years holiday and would visit again. First come, first serve, no reservations. The RV section of the campground is just a big parking lot with spaces large enough to accommodate big rigs (we're 35 feet and weren't the biggest ones there). There are no hook-ups other than a fresh water tap, util... more

“Amazing tent camping spots with incredible views. ”

Reviewed Nov 21, 2016

Overall Rating

Note: We stayed here in a tent. As other reviews have noted, the RV area is a parking lot, however the tent sites offer seclusion, incredible views of the mountains and night skies and peace and quiet. I'd almost give this 5 stars but the bathrooms are vault toilets (clean, but still...). There are two types of tent spots -- one where ... more

“Windy and beautiful!”

Reviewed May 04, 2016

Overall Rating

I will reiterate the parking lot "feature" to keep things consistent but truly that was a minor thing considering everything else. At our site, #39, I pulled in (33' class A) backwards so our door opened onto a small grassy area with a tree where our cat spent most of his time. There were several other spots where parked in reverse of... more

“Parking Lot but Great View”

Reviewed Jan 23, 2016

Overall Rating

As others have said this is just a parking lot but the views are quite great. Tucked into the hillside it offers some great sunsets and sunrises. We only were here for one night but certainly great for a quick trip up to Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

Verizon was good outside but inside the RV a booster would certainly help.

“Everything is upside down”

Reviewed Apr 05, 2015

Overall Rating

All I can add to the current review is that, while we were here, the moon rose fat and golden over the clouds, and the lightning struck upside down. Oh, and we studied alligator junipers extensively. I think I would prefer to come here with either a really cool back country van, or on foot and tent for days, or maybe if I had a hor... more

“For a Parking Lot.. It's Marvelous”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2015

Overall Rating

First of all.. yes.. this campground is essentially just a parking lot. But a parking lot at the base of the spectacular Guadalupe Mountains. There are trailheads right in the RV campground, making exploring the park very easy without needing to drive. We loved that. There's a $5pp hiking fee for a 7-day permit (or your national pa... more
