About Aguirre Spring Recreation Area
The high wall, needle-like spires of the Organ Mountains curve dramatically around a semicircle of Chihuahuan Desert habitat at the Aguirre Spring Campground. The campground, nestled at the base of spectacular cliffs, overlooks the Tularosa Basin and White Sands National Park. Alligator juniper, gray oak, mountain mahogany, and sotol are a few of the abundant plant species here. Seasonal springs and streams occur in the canyon bottoms, with a few perennial springs that support riparian habitats.

Summer Hours (March – Nov): 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

The Aguirre Spring Recreation Area and Campground are located on the east side of the Organ Mountains, east of Las Cruces in Dona Ana County. Take US-70 for 14 miles east of the I-25/US-70 interchange in Las Cruces, then turn south on the Aguirre Spring Road (1.1 miles after San Augustine Pass) for six miles. At mile 4 the road becomes a one-way loop and climbs steeply.
