Bottomless Lakes State Park is located approximately 13 miles east of Roswell, New Mexico south of US 380. The campground has 32 well-spaced sites with electricity (20/30, some 50 amp) and water. Six sites have sewer connections. There are nicely designed covered picnic tables and grills. The cost of full hook-up sites was $18.00 per night (03/00). Vegetation in the campground includes small shrub like trees (salt cedar) and not much else. The campground is situated at the base of a hill that has exposed red soil and rocks. Lea Lake is crystal clear and spring fed. The 15 acre lake is 90 feet deep and more than 2 1/2 million gallons of water flows from the lake each day. These "bottomless lakes" are actually a chain of eight sinkholes that vary from 17 to 90 feet deep. They were formed when water dissolved salt and gypsum deposits to form underground caverns. The domes of the caverns collapsed under their own weight and the resulting depressions filled with water. Today, these lakes offer swimming, trout fishing, and nature study opportunities for visitors of all ages. The nearby city of Roswell offers a number of "out of this world" attractions such as the UFO Museum and the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this destination to other campers.
