Elephant Butte Lake State Park, Lions Beach Campground, Elephant Butte, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Lion's Beach. Sites on the far end from the main road have great views of the lake. Sunsets are spectacular here and it looks like bunnies really like living here. You would have a good walk to the lake but we just drove down to the beach everyday. Be vary careful, four wheel drive is highly recommended as the sand can be soft and deep! Don't be fooled by the big RVs dry camping on the beach, many get stuck in the sand. Speaking of beaches, this one is very nice. Water is clean and clear and was the perfect temp for swimming in July (cool and refreshing). It does get pretty packed on summer weekends.

Campsites are nice with some shade, nice covered picnic tables and a fire ring/grill in each. You can get some supplies at the marina although they are quite limited but the Walmart is 10 minutes away. No bugs and no critters except the 4 million bunnies running around and some birds that don't fly, they just run around with the bunnies.

There is a nice playground for the kids in the park. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake State Park, Lions Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful campground nestled down in a valley surrounded by low mountains. Indian Lodge is on-site and is really neat to visit. There is some great hiking here with awesome vistas to view. Bird watching is encouraged with numerous bird watching stations set up and a small interpretive center.

The stars at night are just incredible! Trust me on this, you have probably never seen a night sky like this (fellow campers can mess it up sometimes with their lights so take a walk to a dark area if needed). Oh and fellow campers, don't mess up the night viewing with giant lights all around your site!

The McDonald Observatory is close by and well worth a visit. Go to a star party! Fort Davis is nearby and has a decent little grocery store. Marfa is also an easy drive and worth the half day trip to check it out. We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Travel Trailer.
