  • Very nice spot for sand and water. Cost $5 to get in and just spend the day, unless you are camping. Enjoyed it thoroughly.  more »
  • Hello, my name is Billy. I am a camp host for Elephant Butte State Park. I love volunteering here as well as the other State Parks. I highly recommend camping here with your family and friends. Everyone who camps here usually leave high ratings and become frequent visitors. I am looking forward to hosting your next camping experience here at EBLSP. See you all soon.
  • What a special place. Lake and beach in the middle of the dessert with a funky village of trailers, cottages and nice homes. Take your RV on the beach and camp. Dogs and kids in the water all day. Fires on the beach at night. Showers great for RVers.
  • The Luminaria was beautiful again this year! The lighted boats were beautiful as usual! The fire pits were huge and warmed us when we needed It! The hamburger soup was the best! So many goodies too! Roger and Gloria were great friends to enjoy it with! Come enjoy it next year in Elephant Butte State Park! You won't regret it!
  • One of my favorite state parks in the country. Clean, beautiful views, big lake, buttes and packed sand roads to drive through in many places. Nice camp spots or park anywhere, even water's edge. Very busy for summer holidays, otherwise seems you have it practically to yourself. Some public restrooms semi closed during winter months.
  • Great area for family. We stayed at the RV park just outside the State Park entrance. Nice pool and hot tub.
