Guadalupe Canyon Oasis Campground

Your eco-camping site at Guadalupe Canyon comes with a hot springs-fed tub for soaking and a free license to explore the surrounding canyon and palm oasis, which is full of cool pools, waterfalls and petroglyphs.

Family-owned and run, Guadalupe Canyon was stumbled upon by Mr. Loya and is cared for to this day by his sons and grandchildren. A literal palm oasis in the middle of the desert, perched on the eastern edge of the mountains in a long, deep canyon, this is an undeniably magical place.

Accommodation is rustic but civilized. Washrooms are available and the camp sites are outfitted with grills for cooking and picnic tables for eating and socializing. The Canyon also has recently-excavated mud baths, a large swimming pool, and a small food and supply shop. The Canyon is mostly separated into private tubs/campsites which can be reserved at a higher cost, but the eco-camping area is large and friendly. It's a great way to experience a very beautiful place on a short budget!
