Conchas Lake State Park will Have No Running Water this Summer

Conchas Lake State Park, located in San Miguel County, New Mexico, just southeast of Las Vegas, is expected to have no running water starting at the end of May until mid-September, said the Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department.

The State Parks Division will make repairs to the main water tank storage of the park during the summer. The repairs are part of a plan to ensure safer water for future visitors.

The park was forced to put out a boil advisory for all water in the park over the past two seasons because it was not safe to consume straight out of the tank.

No one can access drinking water at the park and shower buildings during the repairs, and the RV dump stations will also be closed. Park visitors must bring their entire water supply to use during their time in the park.

The park will be open for day use and camping. However, the vault and portable toilet facilities are available to anyone who wants to use them.

Visitors are encouraged to be aware of construction activities and use extreme caution near construction equipment. For more details, please contact the park at 575-868-2270.
