Choose Elephant Butte as your vacation destination, and your view from the back of the RV could be rugged mountain ranges and an idyllic lake, the largest in New Mexico.
The resort is a shining light in a desert setting with paved roads where you can easily maneuver a bigger rig and roll the RV onto a level, spacious pad with room to breathe on either side. Each site features flowering bushes, conifer trees, and a picnic table with a choice of pull-through and back-in access. There are full hook-ups to electricity (20/30/50 amp) water, and sewer, plus connection to the internet. The RV awning will be a great source of protection from the desert sun as natural shade from trees is limited. The average daily rate during the peak season starts at $49.78, depending on the placement of your site.
Settle into resort-style living with a dip in the indoor pool or soak in the hot tub where glass doors offer a scenic vista while keeping residents cool. The stresses of life fade away with a visit to the on-site spa, where a soothing massage sets you up for a quiet stay in a resort close to a highway with not a hint of traffic noise. Restrooms, showers, and a laundry are modern and spotless.
Get active on the pickleball court or opt for horseshoes, always a campground favorite. For serious fitness, the resort offers a space with gym equipment, while a leisurely walk around the park showcases the well-kept grounds and creative landscaping. Stargazing is a popular pursuit in the New Mexico desert as the stars come out to play, lighting up the sky with eye-catching views of the Milky Way.
Elephant Butte Lake State Park is a walk away, opening a window of opportunity to go fishing or boating on the lake. If you’re wondering where the name "Elephant Butte" came from, you don’t have to look far, as it’s named after a volcanic island in the lake.
The pet-friendly vibe at Elephant Butte RV Resort is welcoming, complete with a fully fenced dog park and on-leash rules when outside a vehicle. Guardians are required to pick up their furry pal's waste, and the animal-loving staff has been known to dish out treats. With a myriad of trails in the adjacent state park, your pooch can look forward to active walks.
It makes sense to camp at Elephant Butte Resort, with surrounding areas offering an abundance of everyday fun. You might want to book ahead, as their peak times are April through to September.
