Bottomless Lakes State Park

Bottomless Lakes State Park is located along the Pecos River, about 15 miles southeast of Roswell. Established in 1933, it was the first state park in New Mexico. It takes its name from nine small, deep lakes located along the eastern escarpment of the Pecos River valley.

Located on 1,400 acres, the Bottomless Lakes are as much as 90 feet deep and are formed by sinkholes which create the surrounding dramatic red cliffs. RV spots and several picnic areas are available. Located twelve miles east of Roswell on U.S. Highway 380, then seven miles south on State Highway 409.
