Brantley Lake State Park, a southern desert park, is a refreshing place to fish and enjoy other water sports. The visitor center includes historical exhibits about the Wild West town of Seven Rivers.

Southern Lake
Brantley Lake is the southernmost lake in New Mexico, offering water sports and year-round camping to visitors.

Fishing Fun
Anglers can catch a variety of warm water fish such as largemouth bass, walleye, channel catfish, white bass, bluegill and crappie. Due to recent findings of DDT in certain species of fish evaluated and tested by the NM Environment Department, State Parks recommends catch and release only. Click here for more information.

Special Events
The "Go-Fly-a-Kite" rally is held in March; the "Shoreline Sweep" is a part of the Park's Earth Day celebration in April; and the "Kids Fishing Clinic" is held in May. Throughout the summer, Saturday night campground programs are popular.
