My experiences at this park

Comments: Half a dozen different campgrounds are scattered around this long lake—check them all out. Good opportunities for hiking, boating, fishing. The Geronimo Springs Museum in Truth or Consequences has a wide variety of interesting displays, and don't miss the superb Café Bella Luca in TorC. (Note—second word of "Elephant Butte" is pronounced "byoot.")
