About Elephant Butte Lake
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:
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 charming Dam Site Lodge, housed in the old Administration Building dating from 1911 / the dam-building days.
