Pine Springs NF for fee Campground is a simple, desert camping area situated at the base of the Guadalupe mountain. Individual campsites are all at a first come, first served basis. There is no reservation system.
No reservations, if you go during a peak time and you are getting there later in the day expect to have to find somewhere else to stay, whether you hike to Pine Top Campground, which is around 4.2 miles away and you need to be prepared and have the gear to stay in a back country campground, or have a back up plan on where to stay locally. Guadalupe Peak trailhead and the trailheads to go back country hiking are all here. Water and bathrooms but no showers. No food available and no campfires allowed. ********ALSO, if you plan on coming to this park and doing and hiking other than the peak, the park does not sell a decent park map. Only a brochure of the one you can find on the NPS website, you need to bring your own map wth mileage and elevation if you plan on back country hiking. It is not necessary if you only plan to do the peak. *********
No hookups, no reservations, but a close place to stay if you're hiking in the park. Rv's can stay in numbered spaces in the paved parking lot.
Well maintained, nice sites. Very popular. Great hikes in area.
