Pine Springs Campground Amphitheater

Description

Near the primary visitor center at Guadalupe Mountains National Park, the Pine Springs Campground Amphitheater is the center of activity on many summer evenings. Park rangers offer a wide variety of interpretive audiovisual programs. Topics range from geology to reptiles, insects, fire, and early inhabitants. Park-goers should check at the visitor center for scheduled programs, which may be moved in bad weather. The amphitheater is part of the popular Pine Springs Campground, geared toward tent and RV camping. From there, visitors can access many of the park's trails and landmarks, including those that lead to Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas; El Capitan, a 1,200-foot vertical cliff face; the Williams Ranch; and Frijole Ranch. The Pine Springs visitor center, about a quarter-mile away, includes exhibits on wildlife and geology. Another drawing card, Pinery Ruins, is a remnant of a Butterfield Stagecoach stop.
