The dam channels water from the Rio Grande for irrigation in the Mesilla Valley. Nearby Fort Selden State Monument has a museum and trails at the site of a 19th century army outpost.

January 16 New observatory at Leasburg Dam S.P.
The Astronomical Society of Las Cruces and the State of New Mexico have built an public astronomical observatory at this park. Check with the park on when it is open to the public.
July 10 Great value! by Tales From the Mutiny
We originally were just going to spend 2 nights here passing through but found the park and area so beautiful that we ended up staying 10 days. We stayed in both the reserved section and the first-come-first-serve and had wifi at both sites. On-site manager was very friendly and the park staff was helpful with changing our paperwork when we wanted to stay longer. Beautiful area and great hike down to the river. I would definitely stay here again. (We stayed here in a Class A 32 foot MH in January 2013).
April 12 Nicely Kept State Park by Cheyenne
Nice Facilities. Well kept, with a small ranger office on site. Electric and water, with plently of hiking. Beautiful area. Just in the outskirts of Las Cruces.
December 31 Very poor power supply
The power was so low you had to use only one thing at a time. Could not have the water heator on electric as it would drop the power below 108 Volts. 30 Amp plug very lose and wore out! We stayed 12-30-2012 Water/ elec. for $14.00 (ok) will Not be back!
April 9 nice place to visit by happy camper
