Elephant Butte Lake is 40 miles long with more than 200 miles of shoreline. It is the largest lake in the state and offers a wide assortment of waterborne activities. There are well over 100 campsites and at least one full service marina, along with numerous picnic sites. Most of the hiking would be to get from one site to another, this is predominantly a water sports location. There is also the Elephant Butte Dam Recreation Area nearby.

For more information see my Elephant Butte Page coming soon.
