Brantley Lake State Park is New Mexico's newest state park. It is the southernmost lake in New Mexico, and a refreshing place to fish and enjoy other water sports. The visitor center includes historical exhibits about the Wild West town of Seven Rivers (which now lies under the water of the lake). Anglers can catch a variety of warm water fish such as largemouth bass, walleye, channel catfish, white bass, bluegill and crappie.
The Park encompasses about 3,000 acres of land, while the lake surface covers 2,500 acres. Boat rams are provided to allow access to the water where fishing enthusiasts can catch various warm water fish.
