Camp and swim in bottomless lakes!
We chose this campground for our visit to Roswell. It’s located ~18 miles from the city and is nicely situated next to the Bottomless Lakes with pretty views of the surrounding red rock and access to swimming, hiking and biking. Sites are very large and flat with shelter, grill and selection of water/electric or full hook-up. By far the nicest ones, in my opinion, are the front pull-throughs (#24-27) which are both enormous and have small trees and lake views. Only dings are that the last 6-mile ride to the park is a bit bumpy and you can’t take dogs in the swimming area. Overall however we really enjoyed the relaxing surroundings and would certainly stay again.
NOTE/ Our $4/night rate reflects what we paid for electric hook-ups using New Mexico Annual Camping Pass
