Elephant Butte Lake State Park

Elephant Butte Reservoir was created in 1916 with the completion of a dam across the Rio Grande. The reservoir is more than 4o miles long and has 200 miles of shoreline. It is the largest and most popular lake in New Mexico. Popular activities are mostly centered around the water (like boating, Water Skiing and fishing), and the numerous campsites.

Elephant Butte Lake Dam

The dam itself is also popular to see. It is not on the State Park property itself; but is not far away.

Elephant Butte Dam Recreation Area

There is also a recreation area by the dam that is popular. The views of the dam and the surrounding area are spectacular.
