The world's most famous cave system; huge underground chambers filled with spectacular, varied speleothems, viewable by self-guiding tours. Other, backcountry caves are open to suitably qualified visitors. Most of the park contains limestone hills, crossed by several lightly used trails.

There are no words to accurately describe a visit to the Carlsbad Caverns. It’s educational, beautiful, inspiring, and a great place to go to beat the heat of the West Texas summer! Arrive early and stay late to watch the Bat Flight at dusk. GREAT for families!

Carlsbad Caverns is just an hour away from the camp. It is well worth the trip! Depending on the time of the year, plan to stay later for the bat flight. It’s amazing!

Bar
“The Trinity Hotel Restaurant was originally built in 1892 as a bank, and over a century later, a brave group of investors decided to save it from many years of decay and turn it into a charming hotel and restaurant. They offer both a selection of fresh steaks and a menu of Italian cuisine, so there’s really something for every taste.”

Park
“Overlooking the Pecos River Valley, this fascinating park exhibits the varied plant and animal life of the Chihuahuan Desert region. Visitors can observe animals like snakes, lizards and birds of prey, plus larger animals such as bison and elk. Take a relaxing walk along a nature trail past cacti, yuccas, agave and other native plant life.”

Restaurant
“For some impressively creative dishes, Yellow Brix Restaurant should be your first stop in Carlsbad. You might want to go in for a full three-course meal, as you shouldn’t miss their soups, salads, and appetizers. Both their steaks and seafood come highly recommended, and of course, you can’t forget dessert.”
