Dedicated in 1972, the park contains 86,416 acres with elevations ranging from 3,650 to 8,748 feet at the summit of Guadalupe Peak, highest point in Texas. Four of the state’s highest peaks are in the park, as well as many other unnamed peaks more than 8,000 feet tall, deep canyons and a rare mixture of plant and animal life. Forests of ponderosa pines mingle with aspens, maples, mountain junipers and madrones, with abundant deer and elk grazing in the upland meadows.
Tent and self-contained RV camping is offered at Pine Springs campground near the ruins of the historic “Pinery” stage station.
