There is no lodging (hotel, lodge, cabin) inside the park. However, if you are planning on staying in the park, Guadalupe Mountains operates two frontcountry campgrounds. NOTE: all camping is at a first come, first served basis. There are no reservations for individual campsites.
Pine Springs Campground

Dog Canyon Campground
9 tent sites, 4 RV sites (23 foot maximum), 1 stock corral site. Campground is accessible.
Things to Know
- There are no campground reservations for any of the individual sites in either campground.

- Fires are not allowed in any of the campgrounds. Fire or charcoal fires are banned year around.
- Cooking must be done using only contained propane stoves or grills.
- Generators are permitted in designated areas between 8am-8pm.
Camping for Organized Groups
There are two group campsites available at Pine Springs + one at Dog Canyon for organized groups with a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 20 people per site. The fee is $3.00 per person. The fee for Senior and Access passholders is $1.50 per person; there is no discount for Annual, Annual Military, Annual 4th grade, Volunteer or Guadalupe Mountains National Park passholders. Group campsites are available by reservation up to 60 days in advance. Due to the small size of park campgrounds, group campsite users may not overflow into individual campsites.
