Located Off The Beaten Path, This Tiny Oasis Is Hiding In Plain View At Carlsbad Caverns National Park In New Mexico
Just when we thought we’ve seen everything in New Mexico, the state still manages to surprise us with hidden spots you really need to dig deep to find. For example, did you know an oasis is hiding not far from one of New Mexico’s most popular national parks?
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
The historic district is open daily for day-use only. Tables, grills, and restrooms are available, and always remember to Leave No Trace when visiting the state’s natural areas. For more information, visit the Carlsbad Caverns National Park website.
