We live in El Paso, TX and wanted a nice one day trip. T or C is one and a half hours from El Paso but I have never been there. I went with my two daughters, 8 and 11 and my Dad. Great little quaint town. It's got the usual McDonalds and so forth but if you venture in... More

I was with some friends at the Damsite Marina Bar & Resturant, (we went just for a day trip) had a nice meal there in the restuarant and then moved over to the bar for a drink and a game of pool. The bartenders drinks were so good when offered another, we had to decline due to the long drive... More

We enjoyed our stay here over Fall Break, looking for something to do since the National Parks were closed and we couldn't visit White Sands or Carlsbad Caverns. It was fun to stay in such a historic building, and found our rooms very comfortable and enjoyed looking at the historic pictures of Elephant Butte in the hallways. Waking up and... More

I had a great experience with my cabin stay at the Dam Site Recreation Area. The cabins (built by the CCC in 1940) are true to their original design and construction, but appear to have been well maintained with all plumbing, air conditioning, etc. working nicely. I stayed here on one night of a long family road trip and it... More

We have been going to Elephant Butte for 26 years. We stay at the cabins most of the time and expect the showers to leak and the place to have bugs. This past weekend we where surprised because it was the cleanest it has ever been. They have new management and are starting to fix the place up. My only... More

We found the Dam Site Resort and Marina online, and booked the large cabin. Based on the website we expected a rustic cabin experience; however, we were shocked to see that the place was filthy. It had obviously not been cleaned prior to our arrival. The shower leaked all over the floor, there were giant hair balls blocking the drains... More

Just love this area. One of a kind view of the Elephant Butte, a volcanic neck sticking up out of the lake! Great restaurant and patio. Wonderful Lodge to stay in. Very peaceful, nice big rooms. Very Historic location! The reservoir popped up along the Rio Grande when the Elephant Butte Dam was built in 1916. At that time the... More

this place is not really a resort...it is simply a lodge above a marina on Elephant Butte lake. That said, if you want to be away from it all (not that T or C is not already away from it all) and like a well put together rustic setting, this is an interesting place to stay in the area. The... More

This is not a resort, but a lodge that has been nicely restored recently. The lodge sits above the lake and marina on state park land. There are two marinas at Elephant Butte. This is the small marina. The lodge was housing for the executives who were involved in building Elephant Butte Dam in the early 1900’s and it is... More
