  • Love Elephant Butte. Been coming for years. Never come during major holiday weekends. But IF it's a holiday, stay at Monticello campground: peaceful, serene, sites far from each other, never full. No, there ain't no lake access there anymore :-( but it's 5 min to main part of park. I go to EB on wed and thurs. Perfect. I trundle down to T or C once a day to take a one hr mineral bath at Artisan Bath House $7. Two days of this and the incredible night sky? I feel totally rejuvenated. Disclaimer: tented it for yrs. Kicked my arse. Now have tiny sleeper camper with air cond. :-)
  • We loved it here... just 1 word of advice though, dont camp in a tent out at marcello or however you say it camp ground, the wind is so strong are tent broke, our pop up destroyed second day in .... but otherwise AMAZING PLACE
  • We go to relax and enjoy with the kiddo. Also to fish and enjoy the view. Plus the staff are awesome and very nice people to talk too.
  • Had to ask for a refund because of the lack of space to camp (tent). No shade. Rough terrains. If you are a forest person, just go to see the "beach", but getting charged just to see water not a good idea.
