About 3 hours out of the cold/snow and uniquely positioned to draw warmer temps in winter...this is a perfectly nice spot to hang out for a bit and warm up! There are some nice restaurants nearby, springs and the lake is peaceful. Grounds are well kept and bathrooms clean. All state parks are very reasonably priced and well worth a... 更多
Elephant Butte is designed for hundreds of campers, but in the winter it's almost abandoned while the facilities are excellent: warm showers, clean bathrooms, and well maintained campsites. The campsites are water and electricity only, but there is a dump station near each of the major campsites.

The boys had a great time and caught a bunch of fish when... 更多

Came for a fishing trip, said to be that it had a lot of fish to catch from but we didn't at all, can't say maybe we weren't using the correct lure or bait or maybe the fishing didn't want to bite at all! But overall a good trip! The scenery was beautiful! The weather was perfect just a few... 更多
