8 Lakeside Campsites In New Mexico That’ll Make Your Summer Epic

New Mexico may not have a coastline, but we can still enjoy waterfront views. What better way to wake up than next to the clear water of one of our lakes? These 8 campgrounds offer affordability and great water views.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

It’s worth noting that many New Mexico state parks offer “first come/first serve” campsites that you cannot book in advance so, even if your desired date appears unavailable, you might still be able to score a spot.
