Agua Adentro Pens

Campsite with picnic tables and shade shelters

Agua Adentro Pens is an equestrian staging area along Camino a la Sauceda, the two-wheel drive main road. This campsite holds a maximum of 24 persons and 12 vehicles.

In Spanish, Agua Adentro means “water within,” referring to a nearby mountain and spring. This has three large shade shelters, several livestock pens, three fire rings and a traditional ocotillo fence surrounding a small livestock pen. The area is so large that it easy to move any horse or travel trailer around to make camp more comfortable. Located close to the center of the park, the equestrian has unlimited access to miles of historic ranching roads and trails to explore.
