Lake Carlsbad Recreational Area

OverviewLake Carlsbad on a Typical Early Summer Morning
Located within the heart of Carlsbad, Lake Carlsbad offers fishing, boating, water-skiing, and camping. Lake Carlsbad is surrounded by several hundred acres of City-owned parks and golf courses and a lighted lakeside walkway that stretches over 4.5 miles in length.  Other amenities include nine tennis courts, three racquetball courts, four play grounds, skateboard park, and the Riverwalk Youth Recreation Center.

During the Holiday Season from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, the residential properties lining the northern shore of the narrow lake decorate their yards with beautiful displays in a popular event called Christmas on the Pecos. The event is organized by the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce.
