Organ Pipe Cactus Information

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument offers diverse plant and animal communities, rich cultural history, scenic hiking trails, and night camping.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument celebrates the life and landscape of the Sonoran Desert. In this desert wilderness, you may drive a lonely road, hike a backcountry trail, camp beneath a clear desert sky, marvel at magnificent cactus, or soak in the warmth and beauty of the Southwest. Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument exhibits an extraordinary collection of plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert.

This is a showcase for creatures who have adapted themselves to the extreme temperatures, intense sunlight, and little rainfall that characterize this Southwest region. Twenty-six species of cactus have mastered the art of living in this place, including the park's namesake and the giant saguaro.
