This National Park sits within the Chihuahuan Desert of Western Texas and is well-noted for its brilliantly white Salt Basin Dunes, fossilized reef mountains, outstanding views, and multiple ecosystems that host an array of diverse wildlife. You’ll find four of Texas’ highest peaks here, as well. The mountains, canyons, dunes, and vast desert all hold their own unique treasures. The Guadalupe Mountains National Park is a perfect setting for a whole list of recreational opportunities, but it takes some of the most daring to get to the best vistas.
It’s a hiker’s paradise, a unique setting for backcountry camping, a haven for some of the best birdwatching, and you’ll never be without a photographic opportunity. An RV base camp provides the perfect place to start your adventures and try it all. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is open all year-round, and this arid environment can be enjoyed during any season. Certain seasons may be drastically windier than others, so it is best to note when weather conditions may go awry.
You’ll want to plan ahead to ensure your trip to Guadalupe Mountains National Park is a pleasant one. Campgrounds out here are primitive and cell phone coverage can be rather unreliable. While creature comforts can ride along with you in your rig, there is no doubt about it - this place is backcountry camping at its best.
