We had a few fun hours out on the lake! Wind came up and we had to leave, but it was great while it lasted.

We camped at site number 1, it was a nice, large, mostly private site away from the main campgrounds. I would have given this place a better rating, but we didn't realize the bathroom that we intentionally chose to camp near was closed for the season. That important bit of information was on the website and I found it with some searching, but it was not mentioned anywhere obvious when I made the reservation. It was a very long walk to the nearest toilet in the morning. The showers were sufficient and nothing more.

Hiked in the park late February and it was quiet and beautiful. The trees were just beginning to open their leaves. We found it to be an awesome outdoor adventure super close to T or C. The volunteer working the payment window was super friendly and gave us lots of useful information.

1st time visit to Elephant butte lake state park. I found staff very friendly and helpful, spot was very clean and easy to back into. (#87). Included cover patio, fire pit, 30Amp and water. Dump station available. Beautiful view. I had about 20 over the air TV channels, internet was good and good Verizon cell service. Would most definitely stay here again. With the New Mexico State Park pass my stay was $4 nightly.
