  • Camping right on the edge of the lake! Beautiful clear water and great for boating and camping. Recommend the trip! Water was up!  more »
  • We visited during the week in the spring. This obviously is a heavily used park, especially the boat docks. Camping available. This is desert, read sand. When the water is up, there is plenty of space...  more »

  • We always have fun at Elephant Butte. There is a great State RV campground called Lions beach that has electric and water connections. It's quiet and the views are great. It's not far from restaurants and hot spring soaks in T or C. There is a nice walking trail in the desert that circles around near the entrance. You can walk down to the lake. The lake is currently still very low so it's a bit of a walk to the water. You can rent boats at the nearby marina. We really enjoy coming here.
  • Our favorite park in New Mexico. Primitive camping is $8 a night and you can drive onto the beach to camp. We stayed there for 3 nights and it was great. The staff at the entrance was very helpful! You can also walk to the dam from the park. It was a 5 mile walk round trip for us.
  • I came here for a camping trip/wedding with my friends. The view we had of the lake from the campsite was beautiful! The water was also nice to swim in and fish.
  • Beautiful scenery, however, if you just want to stop and picnic with your family it will cost you about 5$
  • Camp host was very friendly. We were very impressed with how clean the reserved camp site was. Everything is raked with a design before each guest arrived for Desert Cove Campground. We will be back.
