Found out about this lake from friends. Now it is our regular retreat. Love that it is quiet, low use and CLEAN water.

2nd largest lake in NM. Offers numerous types of fish to fish for. Boating, jet skiing, tubing, skiing and other water activities. Holidays are extremely busy (thousands) but it is always a good time.

We live in the area and spend a ton of time at the lake in the summer. You can find plenty to do here, swimming, fishing, hiking trails, camping, etc.

The park is set up with sites close to the water but not right in a beach area. I have seen people pitch a tent and park an RV close to the water, but it might be a good idea to discuss your site choice with a park official... More

(Got cut off). Parent supervision is not an option - there are no lifeguards. Would suggest wearing an old pair of sneakers in lake to protect feet from rocks and foreign objects. Bring plenty of sunscreen.

Oh yes. Many with view of lake too. You may want to think about calling ahead to reserve a spot.
