Guadalupe Mountains National Park Camping & Hiking

  • Nov 23, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

THE EVENT IS NOW CLOSED TO NEW RSVPS.  SORRY BUT WE ARE FULL.

PEOPLE WHO MADE IT, PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL FOR INFO ON MY ROUTE (IF INTERESTED IN CONVOYING WITH US) OR INFO ON FOOD IF YOU WANT TO JOIN THE GROUP IN THE GROUP MEALS.

This is being co-posted with the TX group: CLICK HEREIf flying in (probably El Paso or Midland) then check with them also for car-rental pooling possibilities.  Just post you interest in the comments box for each post.  As for me, I'll be driving from Houston at ~ 5AM Saturday, Nov 23.  Let me know if you want to caravan with me.

The RSVP list is now full.  But if anyone drops out of the YES RSVP then its first come first served from now on but alternating with the TX group wait-list.  If you are eager to go and don't want to wait for an open spot then you may want to check hotels in Carlsbad or Van Horn.  Or try to come early to catch an individual campsite at the park.  They are all first come first served.

PLEASE BRING SMALL TENTS BUT LARGE ONES ARE OK IF SHARING WITH MULTIPLE PEOPLE. INDICATE IN THE RSVP OR COMMENTS LINES IF SHARING A TENT, OTHERWISE I WILL ASSUME YOU'RE IN AN INDIVIDUAL SMALL TENT.

For the last time we did this camping see:  CLICK HERE

For questions send me an email but if you have more urgent inquiries call me at my cell # at[masked]-1976.

The CAMPSITEI reserved two group campsites at Pine Springs Campground.  The limit is for 40 people but I expect we can fit only ~26 people since most will not be sharing tents.  . NO SHOWERS IN THE PARK, so plan on sponge baths and look forward to the shower on Tuesday in Carlsbad.

CAMPSITE COSTS: It will be 12$/person for the trip plus your park entrance fee per car.

FOOD: There are really no nearby places to go out to eat and so we should plan to cook our own meals.  I am thinking of planned group dinners for Sunday and Monday.  For Tuesday we can eat at a restaurant in Carlsbad after our visit to Carlsbad Caverns National Park.  Once we have a final RSVP list I will send info on this.

    Usual way for Bay Area folks is to fly in to El Paso, Texas and then a 2 hr. drive to the Guadalupe Mountains.
