Was one of the largest dams when it was constructed by WPA and Army Corps of Engineers for flood control and irrigation. Electricity generation added later. Interesting from a historical perspective.

Just a nice day trip to see the dam and surrounding area. It is a breathtaking view. It is a bit remote, but it is easy to find once you are there. On a clear day you can literally see forever.

We came here to eat and to look over Elephant Butte lake (our first time coming) and found out the restaurant close - doing renovations - should be back open for business in 2017.More

Not much to say! It is an Historic Site that once was visited by celebrities and the famous. An essential part of NM growth, but it is just neglected.More

The title kind of says it all. Having high hopes that this restaurant would have improved when it reopened, I was disappointed. The food was not good, the odor and feeling of dampness was everywhere. The fly infestation insured I would not return here.
