  • 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. :-)
  • Small sites. Nice though. Bathrooms are closed from October thru March.
  • Excellent facilities for kayaking, swimming, fishing, etc. Great mountain bike trails nearby, and good food in the local area. Clean public bathrooms/showers available during the summer.
  • 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
  • This truly is paradise. I have Rio Grande Guide Service for 17 years on this lake and have enjoyed every second of it.
