About Our Community...
Dell City is a small farming and ranching community, located 13 miles off of US Highway 62-180. Approximately 80 miles between El Paso, TX and Carlsbad, NM. Our current population hovers near 500 with plenty of room to grow.
Known as the “Valley of Hidden Waters,” this quaint little community is nestled at the base of Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
Mild winters and an abundance of sunny days are assets to this “desert oasis”. From November to late February, day time temperatures range between 50 and 60 degrees, with night time temperatures in the mid 30’s to upper 40’s.
Spring ushers in 70 to 80 degree temperatures and an occasional west Texas wind storm, from March to late April. The summer season heats up with temperatures in the mid 90’s to lower 100’s from May to mid September.
An occasional summer thunderstorm or rain shower will take the edge of off the desert dryness and fill the air with a fresh washed desert aroma. From late September through October temperatures will drop back to the 70 to 80 degree range.
