The City recently launched its own site for Tourism, you can see it here!
Hailed as the “Diamond in the Desert,” Elephant Butte is home to the largest lake in the state and Sierra del Rio, a 5-star Golf Course that was recognized by Gold Digest magazine as one of the state’s Ten Best courses. It offers 18 holes, a driving range, a sport shop, and a bar/restaurant with outside seating on a deck overlooking the course.
Year-round recreation is available, and the city’s population swells during the summer, especially on big holiday weekends like July 4, when a huge fireworks show happens over the lake. In fact most of the city’s events happen at Elephant Butte Lake State Park, from the Annual Chili Cookoff in October to the Luminaria Beachwalk the 2nd weekend in December.
