The lakes are water filled sinkholes in the local gypsum terrain. Odd geology and water chemistry create homes for unusual plants and animals, like the Pecos Sunflower and marine dragonfly. The lakes' greenish-blue color creates the illusion that the lakes are bottomless. Lea Lake is the deepest lake at 90 feet and is the only lake where swimming is allowed. During summer, visitors can rent paddle-boards and paddle-boats for a small fee. Devil's Inkwell is 32 ft. deep and is named for its steep sides and dark water, the result of algae growth. This lake is stocked with rainbow trout in winter. Bottomless Lakes State Park is located just outside of Roswell, New Mexico, an easy drive from Zia RVillas.
