Those young at heart may giggle at the name, but Elephant Butte Lake State Park is far from looking (or smellin’) like an elephant butt. In fact, this place is pretty rad, and the scenery is to die for. In the middle of the lake Elephant Butte rises over those chilling in the water. Jet skis, sailboats, kayaks, pontoons, and houseboats all share the water here; there’s plenty of room since this is New Mexico’s largest state park! There’s over 15 miles of hiking and biking trails for those who want to see the butte from all angles, and campgrounds nestled along the shore will ensure you get that crazy sunset shot. Anglers will be happy here too, the fish are a plenty and local guides can show you all the best spots. Giggle at the name if you will, but once you get to Elephant Butt, er, Butte, those laughs will most definitely turn to memories!
