  • We thought this was a swimming hole but it is only a daytime picnic area. Grounds were clean and it was lush despite the desert backdrop. Cool contrast. Not much to see but a few wild turkeys. 
  • After attending the Carlsbad Cavetns, one yearns for light and air. And when you're starving and then this is the perfect place. He belongs to the NP, you have to drive but still back to the direction of 180 and a few miles of Texas. Good directions. Numerous large cottonwood trees are many picnic tables and BBQ areas. Toilets are also available. Little excitement, something important!

  • Amazing oasis in the desert. If you are a birder this is a slice of heaven. Lots of birds are here in the middle of the desert seeking water and food. wiki/Rattlesnake_Springs_Historic_District
