swimming at Caballo Lake
Swimmers flock to our lakes every summer to have fun and cool off, and during less busy times, athletes train for open water swimming events (wetsuits recommended).

Please stop in at any of the State Parks Visitor Centers for safety tips if you’re planning on swimming at Elephant Butte or Caballo State Park.
