Put out a post when you go if you want some company. I've been meaning to check it out too.

The good camping..

To really enjoy your camping spot you gotta drive around the backside of the park to stay at the Dog Canyon campground. As previous posters have mentioned the Guadalupe Mts national park camping is essentially a parking lot (and wind tunnel). Water available by jug only.

Dog canyon is awesome. Right around the corner is the most unreal water fall as well.

We just returned from California traveling I-10 and decided to avoid the Guadalupe's because of all the winds that blow in the late fall and winter. It is an awesome place to hike and look at the scenery. The Parking Lot campground is not wonderful except for where it is located. We have camped there in a tent several times and in our Airstream.

Spent two years working in the guadalope mtns and found some neat areas to go. Ask for bj who is the park head ranger and she will give you all the info to the area. Mckitrick canyon was very interesting hike to some stone houses that were worth the time about 7 miles hike round trip the houses were made of cut stone and hauled up the trail on horseback. Lots of wildlife to see and the only elk heard that i know of that is free range in texas mostly on the south side of 180. The back of the guadalupes are the lincholn national park in new mexico, long drive but it is a real pine forest. Takes 2 hrs from carlsbad to get there. The interstate from carlsbad is new blacktop devided and is a nice ride.
Gas is at white city or on hw 180 25 miles east of the mntn. Stop at the salt flat cafe, shirly makes a great hamberger and some very interesting stories. There is a large parking lot at the cafe and that is the last area until el paso for refreshments.
