Main Street Picnic Guide: New Mexico 
Leasburg Dam State Park

P.O. Box 6
Radium Springs, NM 88054

Gate Hours: 7 am - sunset

To get to Leasburg Dam State Park, go 15 miles north of Las Cruces on I-25, get off at exit 19 and take NM 157 west to the park entrance.

Leasburg Dam State Park offers camping, picnicking and bird watching. From mid-March to mid-October the park offers fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

Adjacent Fort Selden State Monument has a museum and trails at a 19th-century military outpost.

Leasburg Dam, built in 1908, is one of the oldest diversion dams in New Mexico. It heads a canal system that irrigates extensive farmlands south to Las Cruces.

The park has attractive picnic and camping facilities on the Rio Grande, a modern restroom with showers, a new playground for the young at heart, a new campfire circle for evening programs, and a new visitor center with exhibits.
