Project Description

The southernmost lake in New Mexico, Brantley Lake State Park, which is located a few miles north of Carlsbad, is an oasis of water, wildlife, plant life, gorgeous sunsets, and stunning night skies.

Unfortunately, the dock at Brantley Lake’s popular Seven Rivers boat ramp was removed about 5 years ago due to its deteriorated and unsafe condition.

So, New Mexico State Parks would like to install a new, low-maintenance floating dock and walkway that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Why it Matters

This project is something local community members wanted and repeatedly requested to the staff at Brantley Lake.
