If You Live In New Mexico, You Must Visit This Amazing State Park

Sinkholes may sound more like a hazard than an attraction, but they are the reason why people visit one New Mexico state park. Bottomless Lakes State Park consists of eight sinkholes filled with water. These oases are so beautiful that they inspired the founding of this state park – New Mexico’s first – in 1933. Ever since, people have been taking advantage of the recreational opportunities available at this unique place.

Bottomless Lakes State Park is a one-of-a-kind destination. If sinkhole swimming isn’t on your summer bucket list, add it now!
