Main Street Picnic Guide: New Mexico 
Brantley Lake State Park

Brantley Lake State Park is 12 miles north of Carlsbad via US 285, then 4.5 miles northeast on Eddy County Road 30.

Brantley Lake State Park, a southern desert park, is a refreshing place to fish and enjoy other water sports. The visitor center includes historical exhibits about the Wild West town of Seven Rivers.

Brantley Lake is the southernmost lake in New Mexico, offering water sports and year-round camping to visitors.

Anglers can catch a variety of warm water fish such as largemouth bass, walleye, channel catfish, white bass, bluegill and crappie. Due to recent findings of DDT in certain species of fish evaluated and tested by the NM Environment Department, State Parks recommends catch and release only. Click here for more information.

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 popular.
