About Penitente Canyon Campground

Penitente Campground is located in the Penitente Canyon Recreation Area. Avid rock climbers will love the walls and pinnacles of Penitente Canyon Recreation Area. Technical climbing through nearly 300 world-class routes will test both abilities and endurance. In addition, an extensive trail system offers excellent hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

In the more recent past, the "Virgin de Guadalupe" was painted onto one of the canyon walls. In addition, the Old Spanish National Historic Trail, formerly a 19th century Mexican trade route, passes by this area.
