Reviews for Bottomless Lakes State Park

| Traveling through for 1 night

By user-5765729... on 2017-10-23.

Pro's: easy pull through sites, inexpensive ($14), pretty scenery, wifi was ok, gates lock at 9, quiet too Con's: flies everywhere, they bite and are relentless, sewage was unusable, and bathrooms were hot and closed for repairs the next morning when we went to use them. We would give this place another shot because it was cheap and lovely.

A little off the beaten path. This is a tiny little lake that is clear. It has a small roped off beach area. Not bottomless though. Spaces were wide with a covered table. Most spots had a tree or two although not tall trees so doubt summer has much shade. Gravel driveway and pad with a little grass. Very quiet. I had a pull through for $14. W & E. Dump site on grounds.

Passing thru Roswell late, we needed a place with our young triplets on our 6 week USA tour. Red barn was nice but very compact and quiet do we opted for bottomless lake. The RV spots are at the southernmost lake Lea and are spectacular for this area. The beach and it's protective cove with TONS of sheltered picnic tables and unique views of the shattered cliffs as they fell into the lake makes a really nice atmosphere. A commons shelter in the middle has a wood stove fireplace as only grill fires were allowed at the site. Wifi is good, playground good for kids, and when we were there it was virtually empty on a weekday thurs-fri. Need some mosquito spray if you are O positive. Paddle boats weren't out for us to rent but after Labor Day it seems to get quiet. The abundance of parking and picnic tables and shelters suggests this is a very busy place in summer and likely one if the few watering holes for the area. A maps view showed school busses parked so reservations in peak season might be necessary. We saw at least 10 spots open for walk ins. Several pull thru.

Local to me, great place to stay. 4 full hookup sites with 50 amp, 25 hookup sites with 30-50 amp, water, but no sewer. Some reservable, some not. 2 bathroom facility's, one by the beach the other back in the campground. Paddle boats and stand-up paddle boards for rent, Memorial Day through Labor Day. Lots of raccoons, throw your trash away. 10-18 dollars a night.

We were unsure if we could get a spot before we arrived as the online reservations said just one spot was available for first come first served. In fact there were many open spots. Nice lake and good views. RV spots are $14 plus $10 for untowed car. Leave payment in drop box. Shower and bathroom are available but was less than attractive due to users. Pretty good size crowd but it was peaceful.

| Nice camp sites

Very clean sites, not so clean bathrooms, Wi-Fi is decent. Gates get closed and locked from 9pm to 7am. I parked my 27' airstream with truck still connected into a power only spot with room to spare. Sites are extra wide, could have detached and parked the truck beside it. Cool little area as a whole, I would stay here again.

| An oasis in the desert!

We didn't see many options for a decent rv park in town so we drove 10 min out and found this campground. We were able to park our 5th wheel right next to the lake. There are 3 spaces available that have full hookups, several with water and electric, and some primitive sites. There's a restroom close by with showers. Also, plenty of tent sites. Nearby, there are petal boats and paddle boards for rent.

Stayed there for just one one night while traveling through New Mexico. Sites are a good size and flat. Was able to get a site without a reservation on a Wednesday night in April. It was only 17 miles from Roswell. We were very surprised by the free wifi; it was a bonus. There isn't a lot of shade, but each site has a small tree like shrub--after all, it is very dry in this part of NM. It was quiet until the quail woke us up in the morning--ugghh! Oh well, we need some wildlife. Bathrooms were nice but the shower heads sprayed all over the place but on you--they need to re-think them. We had beautiful sunset. We would definitely go back if we are in the area. We paid $14--it was self serve when we arrived about 4 pm.

| Impressive campground (Lea Lake)

(Lot 20) Nice gravel lot with 30amp service. Relatively level across with a slight grade down. No water or sewer. This lot is right behind the bathroom/shower. We did not use either. Swimming beach and picnic area is absolutely beautiful!

| Lea lake and 3 smaller lakes

By user-unknown on 2019-08-09. Stayed 2019-04-22 to 2019-04-24

Plenty of first come W&E sites @ Lea. Nice size sites with covered picnic table. No fishing at this lake, but you can primitive camp at 2 smaller lakes and fish there. Decent WiFi and ok bathrooms and shower. Large clear lake to swim and paddle boat in the summer.

Awesome rock formations and swimming. We stayed 3 nights and recommend driving and exploring the park, so much to see that seems hidden. Close enough to Roswell to see everything. Didnt use showers. Level sites and nicely spaced.
