Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 3 No fish by bubba64
park review stars; one to five NM Game and fish puts no fish in this lake never on the stocking report
June 22 Great time by Stephanie
park review stars; one to five Lake is fullest it has been in over 10 years due to the rain this spring. Had fun fishing, boating, tubing, and just taking in the views. Great lake for family fun.
March 31 Dried up by Chaya
park review stars; one to five This is a lake with only a puddle of water left. You can drive down to the puddle. There were two geese and two crows enjoying the puddle when I was there. Everything else is dirt. You can swim in the puddle, as I saw two people doing: they came right out, completely covered in mud. What fun. Why does the State of NM neglect to inform people that the park has been ruined by drought before people take the trouble to drive to it?
