This is the second time we have stayed here and while it is a wonderfully maintained facility we probably won't be back. It doesn't seem like the rules are enforced and if you are a retiree looking for a quiet, relaxing place this isn't it. Expect loud kids tearing around on scooters and bikes going through sites. Even though the reservation form asks the number of kids and ages in your RV, that's about the extent of it. Also, expect barking dogs tied up, even though the rules say that isn't allowed. We have a small dog, however always make sure he is attended. Also, expect sites with one, two or more dogs. On one occasion while walking our dog two dogs charged him. The owner basically said, "Oops." Also, expect the swimming pool rules to be lax. We read in the rules that "laps" were only from 8 - 9 AM daily (no sign in the pool though), however when 3 of us older folks were in the pool at 9:45 some young guy came in a took over the pool doing the most aggressive laps ever (no skill at all) causing the pool to be a torrent. We had to get out. We realize this isn't an "adult only" park, however in trying to be all things to all people it seems like this facility isn't suited for retirees. No offense to the management, because they have a beautiful facility. One would expect a more robust park in the summer with the resulting noise and hubbub, however in the winter months it seems like the retirees who would return year after year would be their priority. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an excellent park! The park is beautiful and has excellent amenities including planned activities and an indoor heated pool. There are 3 levels with one level having concrete pads, while the other two are gravel. Sites are level. We had a gravel site on the 3rd level. It was not as scenic or spacious as the other 2 levels, but well maintained. The dog park is awesome! Wifi is so-so, but free. Management was very helpful and directed us to area attractions. There is no on-site propane, but we found a dealer nearby. This is a great park for full time RV'ers looking for a place to spend the winter. However, it is a significant drive to area national parks and other tourist sites. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is very well maintained, the people who work here are like family, it has free cable (lots of channels) and free wifi (good reception). The fitness center, indoor pool and indoor hot tub were very awesome! They also offer yoga, water aerobics, Tai Chi, basic RV maintenance, Wii bowling, etc.! We loved our stay here and will find our way back during our travels. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Elephant Butte has a great hike/bike trail and the lake offers all kinds of water sports and fishing. Unfortunately, we were here during the winter so we didn't participate in the water sports but we hear during the summer it is a blast!

T or C (Truth or Consequences) is about 4 miles away and has a Walmart and lots of "regional charm", shopping, artsy shops, natural restaurants, medical/dental offices, etc.

We have stayed here many times in the past, but will seek out another local park because the rates have doubled since last Fall for no apparent reason except that they added a small pool. The park is very neat and clean, but tight gravel sites with no other amenities than a pool and laundry room. The monthly rate is lower and has filled the park with permanent residents and only a few pull-throughs and back ins for the overnighters. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Definitely a nice park with lots of NEW amenities. Huge brand new indoor pool facility and event building was being built when we were there so this is definitely a Resort. The upper level has all paved roads with level gravel sites. The restroom buildings plus laundry are also new and very nice. The best part was the coin operated dog wash station!

This would be a 5 star RV park, if it had grass! We just got back today from a rally. The whole area is gravel on the lower part and is filled with native plants. The top part does have cement streets and scrubs and looks great. They did have picnic tables at some sites but not at others. I heard people mention that they did have to work around some trees in their sites on the upper level to open their slide outs. They are building a top notch rec room with an indoor pool. The people who work there are very friendly and helpful. They have a big dog run/ drainage pond, but I doubt it will ever be filled with water, but have to note it. This is a winner RV parks.

Friendly staff, nice sized sites, and meticulously maintained. Our rate was monthly, plus electric. They are building a new rec center w/pool, which will make this an A class facility. The distance to restaurants and shopping was not a problem for us. The only ding is that we thought this was an adult only park. The majority of RV's are retirees; however on occasion, RV's with children were here. Kids being kids, they were loud and running around. I suppose that isn't a problem, since it is occasional or if you aren't in a spot next to them. However, when the new rec center is finished the last thing a retiree wants when they are using the rec center, especially the pool, is kids running around. We will definitely be back and are looking forward to the new rec center and hopefully the management will restrict it adults. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is based on monthly stay. We stayed here in a MH with two other couples we were traveling with, all I can say is we are full timers for 7 years and this was one of the top 5 parks we have stayed in. I am basing this on the entire park, the showers and laundry room were spotless, the new clubhouse was being built and had a beautiful pool which is now open. The managers were great, friendly but they ran a tight ship, which we appreciate, and their dog was adorable. All in all we will go back for a winter season in the next year or two, the only thing that I would have liked was a closer grocery store, but going to Truth or Consequences was always fun.

Rate reflects PA & Good Sam's discounts and a week's stay. Nice wide roadway made back-in easy. Picnic table and hook-ups are new. There was a lot wind during the stay, but not much dust, because the spaces are covered in gravel - not just dirt. Wi-Fi was in good working order. Well lighted, good place to stay in the TRC/EB area. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice new park that is two years old. The area is another matter and could use more than just the big lake to visit. There are no places to eat. What's here is awful, but there is always fast food in Truth or Consequences, five miles away. No movie theaters, although there is a bowling alley. Just bring your own food with you. The park is all good and from gravel to concrete sites and all mostly level. There are three sections, but all nice and they are constructing a big recreation building right in the middle for the town with indoor pool and arts theater. We were on the monthly rate is the reason for the cheap rate. The park is first rate and we will always stay when passing through on I-25. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The rate above, reflects the monthly rate. This is very nice park with an exceedingly friendly staff. The sites are level, with lots of room between the sites. The area we were in was nicely landscaped. The hookups are modern and all work well. There are two laundries with modern washers and dryers. There is a good restaurant across the street, but otherwise places to eat are somewhat limited. Restaurants, garages for repairs, a grocery store and a Wal-Mart are at nearby town of Truth or Consequences, about a 10 minute drive. This park is a work in progress, as a new clubhouse with a swimming pool is being built. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The general manager was wonderful in accommodating us after two staff members informed me that I "gifted" my site to someone else who did not want to move. I reserved a particular site 2 months prior to our stay and DID NOT "gift" it to anyone, nor did I expect to be put in another spot other than the one I chose. The park was wonderful. Host was wonderful in placing us in a premium site; but be careful of the staff who want to "gift" your reserved site to someone else, whether it is a friend or family member. That sort of business is not the right thing to do to your customers! We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stopped here for an "over-night" in route north on I25. This is a VERY nice facility. It is very new and the facilities reflect it. Everything is new and clean and in good shape. Most of the foliage is immature for the same reason. The pull-thru's, while a bit close together, are long (70+ feet), level and easily accessible. No need to disconnect for an overnight. The dog walking area is nice and large enough to accommodate larger dogs if necessary. This is pleasant for us as out 40 pound Aussie seldom fits in the normal TINY dog areas. Staff was pleasant and helpful. While it is a few miles off I25, it is worth the detour for nice comfortable settings. We will stay here again if in the area.

Stayed here one night. Pet friendly. They even had a dog wash station. The site we stayed in was very tight but for one night was fine. Easy in and out pull thru. Staff was very friendly calling ahead to confirm our arrival. Would stay here again We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is based on the monthly rate with electric. Good sometimes slow WiFi. Cable is good, also TV reception with an antenna. No site tables. They are building a swimming pool on the grounds but we used the one at the hotel for free, perfect place. Very quiet during daytime and night. Some weekenders, but when we stayed the season had not really started. Everything looks (and is) perfectly maintained. We stayed at the lower loop and had a nice view on a dessert garden. Friendly staff. We will come back. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
