A few campsites stretch along the road bordering the lake. More are further inland. Hardier campers with four wheel drive vehicles may risk the soft sand to set up shelter along the beach.
It is one of three, and the largest, of the New Mexico state parks in the lake area created by the damming of Rio Grande river.
As in Caballo, birds abound. There is fishing. Most of all, though, there is boating. The park is on the western shore of the lake. The sun rises cross it bathing the water in early glow.
I am camped on a hill top. I can see the sun reflecting fiery silver in the lake as I write.
It is a beautiful sight.
