Mescalero Wilderness Campground

This campground is near several trails leading in different directions, making it an excellent choice for a “base camp” while exploring the high country. (Listen for wild turkeys off in the distance.) Mescalero is situated in ponderosa pine and brush, and is on a slope overlooking a small drainage. Located on the Tejas trail, Mescalero is 6.2 miles from Pine Springs trailhead or 4.7 miles from Dog Canyon.Mescalero Wilderness Campground directions and information are available at https://www.nps.gov/gumo/planyourvisit/bccamp.htm.
