Brantley Lake is the southernmost lake in New Mexico, offering water sports and year-round camping to visitors. It also is New Mexico's newest state park.
Park amenities include a visitor center, group picnic shelter, shower, restrooms, and a playground. Camping facilities at the park include 51 developed sites, all with electric hookup, and a RV dump station.
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 a favorite.
Recreation opportunities at the park include camping, picnicking, boating, water-skiing, sailing, and wildlife viewing. Trails in the parks offer hiking and scenic views. Anglers can catch a variety of warm water fish such as largemouth bass, walleye, channel catfish, white bass, bluegill, and crappie.
