Elevations in the park range from approximately 7,000 feet to 8,182 feet on the crater rim. Windy conditions may exist at the top of the volcano. Summers are mild (highs in the mid-80sF/approximately 30C). Thunderstorms are common in July and August. Light jackets may be needed during the summer. Winters are cold, and blizzards may result in temporary park closures. Warm and layered clothing should be worn the rest of the year.
Come see the world, or at least about 8,000 square miles of volcanic field, from the top of Capulin Volcano.
