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.
