Caballo is located 16 miles south of Truth or Consequences on Highway 187.
As if being home to one of the best views in the county wasn’t enough, Caballo is where you’ll also find Sierra County’s second lake, Caballo Reservoir. Located downstream from Elephant Butte Lake, Caballo is a quieter lake with similar fishing and water sports opportunities.
Exceptional birding opportunities await you at Caballo year-round, whether you are out on the water, wandering Caballo Lake State Park‘s vast cactus gardens — home to yucca, century plants, ocotillo, prickly pear and more — relaxing at a campsite, or exploring the Caballo Mountains.
Fun Facts: The radio and TV towers visible on Timber Mountain are at an elevation of 7565 feet, the highest point of the Caballo Range. On the southern end of the range is a formation called The Sleeping Indian.
If you see a boat sticking out of a building, that's Li'l Abners. The store stocks groceries and snacks, ice, fishing supplies including some live bait, and more.
