Camping and Picnicking
El Morro National Monument operates a nine-site campground year-round. Each site has a graveled tent pad, picnic table and ground grill for fires. During the warmer months, water is available in spigots. Once the overnight low's begin to reach freezing temperatures, water is turned off for the season. There are no hookups for RVs. The length limit on all motor homes is 27 feet overall. One site, #5, is handicapped accessible.
Enjoy a picnic lunch after you work up an appetite on the trail. The picnic area is located near the visitor center and open during the same hours as the visitor center. A group picnic site with four tables and a grill is available when not reserved in advance for school groups.
Did You Know?
The first ranger cabin at El Morro National Monument, which also served as a tourist shelter, was built in the early 1900s and began as nothing more than a wooden shed.
