It appears to be closed! - We tried to visit the park today (8/25/17) and the gate was locked. Also, it looks like the facilities are derelict. Is this park actually open any more?

It gives your soul rest - We have enjoyed Lincoln National Forrest for the last 50 years. From the time I was a little girl until now. It is beautiful and peaceful. I love the Pine Lodge side. It makes my soul happy and now I get to live there

- My father was the first Park caretaker /game warden at this park. My family lived there from 1934 until june 1941. took care of the land and lake.I was born in Clovis two weeks after they moved. WE still have pictures of the park and events of that era.

The naming of Pancho Villa State Park - Columbus, NM Deputy Sheriff Jack Breen (1885 a?" 1962) originated the name a?oPancho Villa State Parka?? (Deming Headlight, Nov. 23, 1961). Breen was the well respected Deputy Sheriff of Columbus at the time of the raid. Breen said he knew Villa well and stated that Villa was not in Columbus during the raid. Senator Ike Smalley (1905 a?" 1998) from Deming introduced the bill in the 1959 state legislature that was responsible for the construction of the park and he promoted the naming of the park (Deming Headlight, Nov. 23, 1961). The name a?oPancho Villa State Parka?? passed unanimously in the New Mexico Senate and then passed unanimously in the New Mexico House. There were no dissenting votes. Pancho Villa State Park in Columbus, New Mexico, was established in 1959 a?oIn the interest of preservation of the memory of the unique, historical occasion of the last hostile action by foreign troops within the continental United Statesa?? (Kottlowski, 1980). It became the only park in the United States to be named after a foreign invader. The naming of the 60-acre park was a gesture of peace and goodwill between the United States and Mexico. The town of Columbus has been designated a National Historic Site. PVSP was dedicated on November 18, 1961 by Governor Edwin Mechem (1912 a?" 2002).

Just Beautiful - We are from South Texas and I took my daughter to see snow for the first time. My friend from Alamagordo took us to Cloudcroft and through the roads of Lincoln National Forest. It was beautiful!!

First visit - One of the Rangers told us it was flooded and not much access for bank fishing. My wife Irma and I caught 6 largemouth in about 45 minutes. That was great!

Huh? - This is like New York City having an Osama bin Laden state park.

- Nice clean facilities Wonderful camp host. The local residents came in took over site and ran us out with loud music after 10pm and pure intimidation. When I filed a report with the Ranger he said that he had already had three previous incidents with the same group. Left out of fear. Do not go there!!!!!!!!
