Located 12mi east of Roswell, the 1,400-acre park consists of nine small lakes. These lakes get their name from their deep circular structure, formed after the collapse of limestone reef formations. Algae growth gives them their unique blue-green color. Only Lea Lake permits swimming, and it's also perfect for scuba divers.
Located between the Chihuahuan Desert and the Southern Plains, the Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge is a blend of different ecological environments. The refuge's wetlands provide habitats for over 350 migrating bird species such as the sandhill crane and the snow goose. The area is also home to many rare native fish, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals. There's various hiking and horseback riding trails to better explore this most unique of parks.
