STARGAZING  

If you've never experienced Elephant Butte's night skies, you'll marvel at how our dark night skies magically reveal a myriad of stars and the Milky Way.  it's easy to enjoy our night skies from the lake or anywhere in Elephant Butte, but you can also create your own personal or group star party at which you'll see amazing details through huge telescopes with "Larry the Telescope Guy!"

ENJOY THE VIEWS 

Elephant Butte Lake is a frequent destination for those who own a parasail.  The views of the lake, Turtleback Mountain, Sierra del Rio Golf Course, Rio Grande River, Elephant Butte Dam and the surrounding mountains and mesas are breathtaking.  Flying above or at the edge of the lake ensures smooth air during the day  from the late spring to the early fall.

GO SWIMMING
 
You’ll find plenty of sandy beaches from which to go swimming, but you’ll also want to explore the many coves on Elephant Butte Lake by boat. Coves are a great place to anchor, swim and even explore the shoreline.
