Elephant Butte
New Mexico’s largest body of water, Elephant Butte Lake, is a fisherman’s paradise known for record-breaking black, white, and striped bass, as well as crappie and bluegill.
Elephant Butte Lake State Park encompasses 40,000 acres and has a Visitor Center and camp sites.
The lake offers miles of trails, sandy beaches, and magnificent views along its 43-mile length, plus 3 marinas to serve boaters:

• Dam Site Marina
• Marina del Sur
• Rock Canyon Marina
The Dam Site Recreational Area, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the 1930s, has been designated a Historic District. The site retains the flavor of the lake’s historic past and includes cabins, an RV park, rock-lined paths, and the old Administration Building dating from 1911. More info is at
