Our recent stay for one night was horrible. When we entered the cabin with the staff member the person had a broom to sweep the "critters" aka cockroachs out of the cabin. Maybe that should have been done prior to our arrival? The overall feeling of the cabin was scary!! Very out dated, poorly cared for. Only 2 burners on... More

We enjoyed our one-night stay at the Damsite Recreation Area. The location and views right at Elephant Butte Lake can’t be beat. As other reviewers have said, the cabins are old but clean, and the 2-room cabins are really 2 bedroom cabins with a living room and 2 separate bedrooms.

It is very run down, the price is average for the area, I have been coming to Elephant Butte for over 40 years, and this is by far the worst place I have stayed. It smell like urine, the air conditioner only heats the small little kitchen area its in, the beds are hard, the windows do not have any... More
