Bottomless Lake State Park, New Mexico

A nice state park for a couple of day layover. We got a great site overlooking Lea Lake.


Bottomless Lake State Park: Site #27, this site has water & electric, dump station available, 69 sites, 3,500 foot elevation. March 1st - 3rd.

Overall Experience: neutral

We timed our route over the Sacramento Mountains from Oliver Lee Memorial SP to avoid both wind and snow at the higher elevations. After passing through Ruidoso, NM, and dropping down east of the mountains, we noticed a gradual increase of accumulated snow on the ground and thought, "What what we getting into?".

During our stay at Bottomless Lakes State Park, it was cold and windy, so we mostly held up in the RV. It would have been fun to explore the area, but we chose to stay dry and warm.

Bottomless Lakes SP consists of nine small, deep lakes located along the eastern escarpment of the Pecos River valley. Lazy Lagoon is the largest of the lakes and is actually made up from three sinkholes. The campground is located on Lea Lake and is the only one that permits swimming.
