Nugent Mountain 1
« on: February 04, 2013, 04:49:44 PM »

The Nugent Mountain campsites are fairly small adjacent sites located just over a mile down the Glenn Spring Road.

Site Name    NM-1    NM-2
Vehicles    2    2
Persons    6    6
Horses    no    4

If both sites are used for a large group: 3 vehicles / 20 persons / 4 horses (one trailer max.)

How to Get There
Via the Glenn Spring Road, 1.1 miles from the junction of the Glenn Spring Road and the main park road to Rio Grande Village. The access road to the two campsites is 0.25 miles in length.

Usual Road Conditions
The Glenn Spring Road and all campsite roads are recommended for high clearance vehicles only. Road conditions can deteriorate quickly after heavy rains. Ruts are the norm on this road. There are many arroyos to cross. Ask a Park Ranger for the latest road conditions.
Current road conditions...

Ground Cover/Shade
No shade and minimal ground cover. Very sparse vegetation.

Good view of the Chisos Mountains to the west, Chilicotal Mountain to the east and Nugent Mountain to the west. Crown Mountain is visible to the left of Nugent Mountain.

River Access

Cautionary Notes
The road can deteriorate after rain. High clearance vehicles are highly recommended at all times, and 4-wheel drive may sometimes be necessary, especially after rain. Always check on current conditions.

NM-1 and NM-2 are fairly small adjacent sites. They share a common parking area. These sites are suitable for a large group by combining the two sites.

A backcountry use permit is required (available at visitor centers). Campers are responsible for regulations listed on the permit. Camping is in designated sites for minimal impact on the surrounding vegetation.
