Comanche Peak Camp is a camp located within Philmont. Comanche Peak is a large, spacious unstaffed camp located immediately to the east of Mount Phillips. Backpackers staying at this 11,100 foot high campsite enjoy tall ponderosa pines that provide a canopy for each crew. The camp is located at 36°28.84' north latitude and 105°08.23' west longitude on Comanche Peak.
While Comanche Peak Camp is a dry camp-- you must pack in your water-- the evening sunset views of Mounts Phillips and Baldy to the immediate west and northwest are worth it, and are a highlight for many a Philmont crew! Thoughtful trekkers that have come before have made convenient natural rock "lounge chairs" on the side of the mountain.
