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.
