Camping is another favorite year round activity at Elephant Butte Lake. Over 200 developed campsites and 150 RV hookups offer a scenic outdoor experience. Comfort stations, dump stations and outdoor showers are available. The state park also offers picnic shelters, group shelters and playgrounds for campers and day use visitors.
The Luchini Trail is close to the park's main entrance. The 1.6 mile walking trail introduces visitors to the Chihuahuan Desert vegetation with over a dozen marked plants typical to the area. Allow 45 minutes.
