April 12, 2019 Loved this park. People wait in line in hopes they can get in for day visit. There are areas that require a guide and some where we can hike alone. We enjoyed exploring the park and climbing the mountains. Campers had to get a permit to climb the mountain by 10 a.m. or they would lose their chance to climb. Campsite had electric and water. There was a dump station, shower and flush toilets. Very clean. Before entering the campground it was mandatory to watch a film about the park. They are very protective of this sacred place.
Cant get in between the hours of 8am & 10am, unless you have a online reservation to even just stay for the day. Closes at 5pm sharp.
First come first serve
Some trails only have a metal chain on the bottom making it feel very off the path
It is on a Native American Reservation. Has wild mountain goats roaming right next to your tent and has off path trails that lead to incredible views
Lots of hiking and caves
I love it here, great educational and heloful Rangers.
there are great caves, bouldering, and cave paintings.
Hueco tanks has so many climbing and bouldering from beginner levels to more advanced. The area has so many historic spots which cave writing and drawings. You must watch a short video before you go in that teaches you a bit more about the site, and gives some great details.
It's an incredibly beautiful place, so unexpected. It is kind of a pain to get access to hiking the trails (must be on the waiting list/or with a guide) but so worth it.
Ended up spending a week here (tho the price was a bit steep) But the family was down with the flu and it was a beautiful place to recover.
Hot showers. Quiet site at the end of the loop, birds chirping and incredible views. The history of the place is amazing.
Nice place to visit and stay for a night or two. Wish they would allow pets…
I know about this campground because I'm an American Alpine Club member, but non-members can also access the lodging and campsites. It's a 3 mile drive to the park, but a nice option, given that the park only has about 20 campsites. Tent sites are $5 for AAC members, $10 for non-members. Facilities are communal including bathroom, shower, and fire pit
