Damsite in Elephant Butte

Several venues are available for rent at the Historic Dam Site, including the former restaurant and patio overlooking the lake; Winding Roads Park; the Dam Site Lodge; and the parking area, which is central to all the other locations.

A special feature of the Historic Dam Site Area: lots of beautiful rock walls, steps, and berms built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

Other highlights: plenty of shade trees, wonderful views of the lake, and proximity to Dam Site Marina.

Though the address of the Dam Site is officially Truth or Consequences, it is a lake-side facility, with views of and easy access to Elephant Butte lake.

An artist retreat is offered in 2 sessions, each lasting 1 or 2 months, annually at the Damsite Historic District. [more info]
