Where is it?

Lake Roberts Lake Roberts is in north-east Grant County, near the intersection of New Mexico Highway 15 and Highway 35. It is close to the Gila Cliff Dwellings and the community of Lake Roberts.

Lake Roberts is a high-country jewel, nestled among mountains near the Gila Cliff Dwellings and impounding the cold, clear waters of springs feeding Sapillo Creek. With both boat ramps and campgrounds available, the lake is an ideal get-away for a few days or longer, and attracts a wide variety of birds, mammals and other wildlife. The Lake is also a great stop on a trip through the Mimbres Valley or while touring the Trail of the Mountain Spirits Scenic Byway.

The lake is maintained by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and is surrounded by national forest land. The small community of Lake Roberts offers a variety of lodging opportunities as well as charming restaurants and cafes.

Lake Roberts is a great place to see local and migratory birds.Camping is permitted at two campgrounds adjoining the lake, Upper End and Mesa campgrounds. Both sites charge a nightly fee and are located on the northeast side of the lake. A grassy, tree-shaded group campground, Sapillo Campground, is less than three miles south of the lake on Highway 35. It offers undeveloped campgrounds under tall pines.
