We pulled in on Friday around 2:30 and got lucky as we got the only non-reservable elec. site. The park is still in winter mode and one section was not open.
The park is located near a dam on the Pecos River which forms the lake. The lake like so many others is very low, the ranger said it is down 75 feet. It was 3,800 acres when full and now only 218.We got in a nice shoreline walk of two miles. Oh it used to be shoreline, but we did see some water.)
The area has some nice hills with pinion and cedar trees. Holy cow, it was nice to see some trees. Carlsbad area sure had few.
