I've been to Dog Canyon a half dozen times--either as a starting point for b'packing trips in the Guadalupe Mts. or as leader of a Sierra Club service project. It may not be for the "drive-through" tourist as the blacktop ends after a quarter mile and the hiking trails begin. The Bush Mt. Trail in particular may be somewhat difficult...

Had a wonderful visit to the Guadalupe Mountains & Dog Canyon! Wanted to share some info for those looking to plan it out. There are RV parking spots and 9 tent spots, they TEND to have space there all the time. There is solid WiFi at the ranger station if you absolutely need it. We visited in early November and...

Only stayed one night because all spots at Pine Spring were full. I felt it was well worth the drive. Campground had only two other spots occupied. Very quiet and secluded. Nice for enjoying the stars!

I came from Davis Mountains State Park near Fort Davis Texas, up Hwy. 118 to Kent, then I-10 over to Van Horn. I took Hwy. 54 North to its intersection with Hwy. 180, and then on...

I took the 13 mile (8 hours) loop counter-clockwise, Marcus portion first, to avoid the...

We enjoyed our stay - not a lot to do there but for some that is a good thing. Clean, quiet, lots of nature. We arrived on a weekday night. There are 9 camping spots and all but 3 were taken that night. Nice drive in. Found out later we could have taken road 408 and avoided much of Carlsbad...

We have been to Dog Canyon in Oct, May and Jan and all seasons are great! If there is snow in winter, the deer are in the campground evenings and early mornings. It has a restroom that is heated in the winter. Otherwise it is primitve. It is a nice quiet place to enjoy for those who really love camping....
