Carlsbad Caverns National Park Sights


Rattlesnake Springs

Rattlesnake Springs Review

Enormous cottonwood trees shade the picnic and recreation area at this cool, secluded oasis near Black River. The rare desert wetland harbors butterflies, mammals, and reptiles, as well as 90% of the park's 330 bird species. Don't let the name scare you; there may be rattlesnakes here, but no more than at any similar site in the Southwest. Restroom facilities are available, but overnight camping and parking are not allowed.
