Closed portions of Conchas Lake to reopen

CONCHAS LAKE, N.M. (KRQE) – Good news for Conchas Lake State Park.

The area’s that have been closed will soon be back open.

Come Monday visitors will be able to enjoy the central recreation area with its shoreline access as well as camping sites.

The park will have two of its boat ramps open for boating and fishing.

Lake levels around the state have risen since last year, which is a good thing for New Mexico.

Parts of Conchas were closed because of staffing issues, but people who live there says right now they’re seeing some of the best conditions they’ve seen in years. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
