Very nice state park. We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Very convenient to explore Roswell. There are a couple short hiking trails at the park. You can also rent paddle boats and paddle boards. There's a side of Lea Lake that you can take your dog to swim at. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are way more negatives than positives. It's peaceful and quiet, but getting here requires a torturous drive. The 8 mile road to the state park is poor. The 5 mile road into the campground, while paved, is a miserable, washboard surface that isn't much better than a covered wagon trail. If you go the 20 mph speed limit you will risk shaking off RV parts. The interior CG roads lack any normal signage that make it easy to get to and in your site. It's basically a free-for-all. I know that it rained prior to my arrival because the gate entry way was covered with couple inches of standing water. The CG roads have mud holes due to a lack of gravel. The ADA site is concrete. All others are gravel and level. There is a covered picnic table on all sites. There are some 50A sites, but I chose one with 30A. With only a few sites occupied, the voltage would only handle one AC and a major appliance. Water pressure was good. VZW 3G was just OK. The free WiFi was strong, but worthless. I could not connect to the simplest internet site. There is no sewer, but the dump station will handle all sized rigs. The bathrooms, while modern, were not all that clean. Don't expect to have a late dinner in town because the entry gate is locked at 9 pm. The small, gnat type, flying critters are abundant. The price is cheap, but I still would not return. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Very pretty area, hiking available. Lake with paddleboats and paddleboards available. Bathhouse available close by. My site was level! They have Wi-Fi here that works! The regular rate is $14 for water/electric hookups, sewer would be $4 more. I paid only $4 per night, since I paid for a non-resident camping permit for a year--$225. Worth getting if you will stay in New Mexico for a while. This is the second state park I've been in--other one was Brantley Lake and that was very nice also. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is for a water/electric site. I was ready to rate this park much higher but the electricity at our site went off at 8:30 pm and we had to move. A swarm of the largest most vicious mosquitoes descended on us just as we were starting to move. On the more positive side, the lake was cool and clear. The campsites and restrooms were reasonably clean after a busy weekend. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

$8 (after purchasing an out-of-state NM annual camping permit for $225 because we will stay in at least two other NM state parks) per night was for a 50A electric, water, and sewer site on a level large gravel site. In addition, the generously sized site had a covered picnic table with a BBQ grill (which could not be used as they had a no wood or charcoal burning ban due to extremely high fire danger). If needed, there is a dump station at the campground entrance. The campground hosts are very helpful and friendly. There are low scrubby salt cedar trees throughout the park. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are many nice gravel trails and roadways inside and outside the park. Many people were using Lea Lake for swimming and kayaking. Animals we saw during our stay included lizards, white-tailed rabbits, jackrabbits, roadrunners, Eurasian Collared Doves, and countless songbirds. The night sky is gorgeous as are the sunsets. The park is very quiet. During our stay, there were high winds on several days including one night with wind gusts of 45 mph. The campground is just 12 miles east of Roswell, NM which offers shopping and dining. We received four bars 4G on our AT&T cell phone and four bars 4G LTE on our Millenicom jet pack. We used the park’s Wi-Fi and it worked very well most of the time. There were 7 OTA TV channels. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for three nights. We originally reserved a pull-through site on line. However the reservable sites only have 30 amp service. Note: there are large 2-foot high rocks that make leaving a site somewhat difficult. Be careful in these sites. The campground host was very helpful and allowed us to move to a 50 amp site. The site was tight for our 44' but it was pull-through and we parked our toad next to it. Good Wi-Fi. We would stay here again if in this area.

Compared with other states, New Mexico State Parks have great rates for the service they provide. I don't know how they do it, but I'm not sure if it will last since every other state seems to be raising their rates. The campground loop with hookups is spacious and well maintained. Restrooms could use more hooks for hanging clothes and shower curtains(they are private stalls but no curtains on the shower stalls). Wi-Fi works reasonably well. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Truck Camper.

Another nice NM park! Really enjoyed the walking trails and seeing all the little lakes on our easy, level walk...about 1 mile one way. Bathrooms and showers very clean and great staff but the highlight is the scenery around Lea Lake where the campground is. Just 12 miles back to Roswell for a quick alien visit!! We would recommend it! We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

A long bumpy ride into the park. Do not pull into the small visitor center lot with the RV. Instead proceed straight to the campground to self register. Couldn't get a site in Roswell, so we kept driving and ended up here, about 30 minutes from Roswell. Sites towards the back are 50 amp and available without a reservation. There were only 3 other campers. Big pull thru sites. The park is kind of interesting, but not worth driving out of your way to see it. There is no additional entrance fee on top of the nightly rate (like some states have). If you tow your car in, there is no additional cost. If you drive your car in separately, they charge you $10. A nice dump station is available, or you can pay an extra $4 a night for a sewer site. Self registration, cash or check, 21 day limit. Wi-Fi was pretty good, and much appreciated. Only a few TV stations came in. There is nothing to do here at night. But hey, you are saving $20 a night compared to the private campgrounds in town, so you can put that money in your gas tank. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

The lake is nice (saltwater). The campground was adequate; however, LOTS of flies. The electricity was questionable as well (my rigs power management system kept shutting off due to spikes and power drop offs). We stayed here for one week and it is highly doubtful we would return. Furthermore, the lake is a popular day use area by the locals. Even though the workers tried to keep things tidy, trash piled up quickly and was blown everywhere. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Last time here they were just installing free Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi signal was good at our site. Also, last year it was tough to get a decent cell signal, but this year we had a good signal with pretty fast LTE. Good Southern exposure for satellite TV. This is a nice park, we try to get here at least once a year. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are level, well-spaced, and some of them have decent shade from bushes. Water and electric hookup, dump station available. Bathroom was clean. It's about a 12 mile drive on Highway 380, to the east, from Roswell, but you are rewarded by a nice quiet campground with decent scenery. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park with good sized sites, good restrooms, and a few walking trails. The road in is not great, but not that bad. We would certainly stay there again. Our Verizon worked just fine. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice state park, with large sites. No Verizon internet service, although we have cell with roaming! Sites are flat with gravel. Concrete pad under the covered picnic table. There is a lake for swimming. No other activates. The staff were nice and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Distance to nearest town (Roswell) about 15 miles. The entrance road is about 4 miles, blacktop, and very bumpy. However, the park is very quiet and clean. Lots of room at the site. Campground has a great beach and enclosed adobe picnic pavillions that provide lots of shade and protection from the heat. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
