First Night Camping

Our first night at a Taj Mahal of a campground at Elephant Butte Lake, NM--50A service, cable TV, dog run for our pups, and a nice level pull-through. We learned that we forgot a bunch of things, but that did not dampen our mood. What a great start to our AS experience!

Budget - You need to change your Forums name of "Budget". That is certainly NO budget trailer!! Beautiful better describes it.

Thanks folks!

Glamping--I like it!

Whitsend--Budget M3 is my 1998 BMW 318ti--not a "real" M3 but 95% of the fun of a real M3 for less than half the cost. I use the same handle on all my car forums, and did not think my overused brain cells could remember yet another username and password

Thanks! We were just passing through this time, but would consider going back. In addition to the obvious draw of the lake in the middle of the desert, the tourist propaganda touts several local attractions in EB and T or C. Hatch (the self-proclaimed Chile Capital of the World) is only ~40 miles away, and Rockhound State Park is not far, so it seems there would be plenty to keep oneself occupied for a few days.

Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort. It's just outside the entrance to EBL State Park (which would be cheaper, but not nearly as "glam" ;-)

The NM Unit has rallied there.
A very nice, small-town, RV Park. Much better that the NM State Park at the lake itself. Things to see:
The hot springs resorts in T or C
Chloride, NM the Ghost town about 40 miles west
Elephant Butte Lake
Hmmm. That's about it.
Oh yes, The NM Spaceport, otherwise known as Bill Richardson's Folly
