You’ll Want To See This Massive Lake In New Mexico That’s 704 Football Fields Long

The Land of Enchantment is full of beautiful state parks, but this one holds the largest and most breathtaking lake in all of New Mexico. In fact, this gorgeous lake equates to 704 American football fields in length! It can be hard to even begin to imagine what that might look like, but once you visit New Mexico’s largest lake, just a few miles from Truth or Consequences, you’ll truly be blown away. With campgrounds, hiking trails, boating, and so much more, this lake isn’t just the perfect scenery, but there’s so much to do. You can spend hours upon this water, so you might as well just pitch a tent and stay the night (right on the beach). This enormous lake is truly a sight to see and an amazing attraction.
