Sierra County

Located midway between El Paso Texas and Albuquerque, Sierra County is a perfect getaway spot for those wanting to escape urban sprawl and spend time in the great outdoors.

Elephant Butte Lake, the largest body of water in the state and the location of one of its most popular State Parks, is connected by the Rio Grande to quieter Caballo Lake. Both lakes offer excellent boating, camping, fishing & birding.

Downtown Truth or Consequences, formerly “Hot Springs,” has some of the finest hot mineral water in the world and is touted as America’s Most Affordable Spa Town. Ten commercial spas downtown are available for soaks, lodging, and other forms of pampering. The Gila High Country lies along the west edge of Sierra County, providing cooler temperatures and hours of exploration in the form of pristine wilderness and living ghost towns. The beautiful Geronimo Trail Scenic Byway connects the Gila to the shimmering desert lakes offering landscapes with a raw authentic southwest flavor. Now the home of Spaceport America, Sierra County merges the past with the future in the new era of rocketry. The commercialization of space travel is launching from our back yard. Come experience Sierra County!
