Caballo Lake State Park, NM
We are spending a couple nights at Caballo Lake State Park, about 20 miles south of Truth or Consequences, NM. It’s our first time here, and while we have a nice view of the lake, with the Caballo mountains as the backdrop, we’re not crazy about the campground layout.
There are only a few very short trails here, but we walked around the park and over to the primitive campground, which is a huge area near the lake for boondocking or tent camping. There were some nice spots closer to the water, and down in the trees.
This spot even came with it’s own primitive chair. Jim tried it out and said it was pretty comfortable.
One more lake view from our hike. The wind has finally eased up a bit.
Just a reminder to use caution at the dump here. It’s a narrow road and there is a curb on the passenger side which caught our step when I went out of the rig, then the step would not retract. Luckily Jim was able to slowly move forward while scraping the bottom of the step until it came free, and it seems to be working fine now.
