Loved the stars here. Walk in sites are a little tricky at night but well worth the stay on a clear night. It was a little windy overnight.

You can hammock camp here, but only on one or two sites. Be sure to keep your pack light.

We stayed at Pine Springs for a couple of nights while visiting Guadalupe and Carlsbad Caverns. When we first arrived (early evening on a Sunday) every site except the handicap accessible one was taken. Because of the location, we saw the campground fill up every day we were there. The sites are pretty secluded from each other and have some good, small trees and bushes for some shade.

Camped for two nights here, you must get a camping spot early on 20 tent camping sites. There is a New Mexico BLM campsite about 20 miles North of Pine Springs used as overflow. Amazing dark skies at night, able to see the Milky Way, Shooting Stars, and Satellites. Sites well built and secluded from each other.

The RV sites are really just in a parking lot.

Welcome!View from the Smith Springs hike (2.3 miles round-trip) - it begins in a desert landscape and continues up through pine forests and a natural spring. Overall, the hike was more enjoyable than anticipated.
