Tent, trailer and RV camping overlooking lake with spectacular mesa and Cerro Pedernal views. This beautiful campground is managed by the Corps of Engineers of all people. Spotlessly clean restrooms and showers. Most spots are very private with covered picnic table, grill and fire ring....More

This is a BLM campground. The cost is very reasonable the facilities are well-maintained. The views are especially beautiful in the morning and in the evening!

The view of the lake was incredible from the parking lot. I walked around the area to take photos from different vantage points. There was a swimming beach as well but I never go to it.

Stopped by the lake. Looked at the campgrounds. No one was in site! Dreary, drizzley, day. We drove to the dam, and visited the museum, and then, we found the dirt road at the bottom of the dam! What a great drive along the chama...More

This was a quick stop for us, we wanted to take in the views of the lake and also the Cerro Pedernal, a favorite painting subject of Georgia O'Keeffe. Lovely spot for a picnic and I'm sure the lake is a wonderful place for relaxation...More

Hello, I didn't see any but read that there was a place to rent water craft. Not sure if they have kayaks. It would be a perfect spot though. Hope you get to try out kayaking on the lake. Enjoy!
