Bonito Lake

Bonito Lake is CLOSED due to the Little Bear Fire in 2012. Crews are presently working to remove silt and ash from the lake. Pending project completion, NMDGF hopes to renew public access and fish stocking as early as Summer 2018. While there is no camping or fishing at Bonito Lake, you may still hike and bike ride around the lake. Bonito Lake is owned by the City of Alamogordo, NM. Public access to the lake is provided by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, Open Gate Program through a memorandum of understanding between the department and the City of Alamogordo, NM.
