USACE-managed day use recreation areas that reopened May 30, 2020, include the South Recreation Area, which contains the boat ramp and picnic areas; the Juniper Day Use Area, and the Captain Kramer Day Use Area.
The public is required to bring their own life jackets as the Loaner Life Jacket program is currently not in operation.
The boat ramp is open for motorized traffic. All New Mexico State rules related to Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) will be adhered to, and staff will be monitoring for compliance.
The visitor center, campgrounds, and boat ramp are closed until further notice. The main office is open for phone calls, but closed to public walk-in. The Conchas Lake State park is also closed. Walking trails are open for normal use. Day-use areas are open.
A ranger will be on site, however, staffing levels are reduced. Please do your part to help prioritize safety when operating boats and hiking, as our capacity to respond to emergencies and accidents is limited.
Contact the Conchas Lake Main Office at (575) 868-2221 with additional questions.
