    It shows EB as the largest, but if you look at it on google earth
    Navajo sure looks bigger
    I bet there not counting the Colorado miles & lake shore in the NM estimate. Hell I think half of the lake is in Colorado. I know its big, if we dont meet are friends in the morning at the marina we usually dont see each other though out the day.

The mighty Rio Grande River does flow from Elephant Butte down past Las Cruces, but can be walked across in most places and not boatable at all.

    We also have the local drag boat racing group out there 4 times a year or so. Bring your boat out and make a pass or two.

    There is also a lake (Brantly) and river in the Carlsbad area but I have never been there and don't know much about it.

    If you end up out here let me know and I will buy you a drink of your choice.

    Elephant Butte is the largest in the state? I always thought it was Navajo?

    Brantley is a nice small lake, seldom ever more than 15
    boats on the water except holiday weekends.

    good ski lake, water levels vary during summer.

    about 2 hrs from Alamogordo.

    Carlsbad beach is not jet friendly
