Set against the west-facing escarpment of the Sacramento Mountains, Oliver Lee Memorial State Park features historical exhibits and a fully restored 19th century ranch house. Springs from Dog Canyon support a variety of unexpected plant life, including maidenhair fern and wild orchids.

Within this harsh landscape is a quiet green oasis, where water flows year-round and ferns cling to the sides of mossy rocks. This area, known as Dog Canyon, is one of many deep ravines that slice the west-facing flank of the Sacramento Mountains in southern New Mexico.

The park’s namesake, Oliver Milton Lee (1865-1941), was a rancher, U.S. marshal, and gunman and one of the most colorful characters in New Mexico history. Life of late 19th century settlers can be experienced through the guided tours of Oliver Lee’s ranch headquarters.
