Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico
We arrived at Brantley Lake State Park on Saturday, July 18, and luckily found a real nice spot with a lake view. There is no grass in the area, just lots of rocks, cactus and other dessert vegetation. We have a small spot to sit a couple of chairs and look out over the area, and a nice pavilion with a picnic table. There is a short trail through the hillside that takes us down to the picnic area and boat ramp. I worry about letting the dogs loose because there are scorpions and snakes all over the place.
