  • I got to see fire works. It was so cool. The lake looks like it is clear but it is not but it is man mad. And it was so much fun .
  • 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.
  • My son loves to fish here and the people at the marina are always so down to earth and nice.
  • I've been going to this lake almost my whole life. I love this lake.
