Falcon Dam was dedicated by Mexican President Adolfo Ruiz Cortines and President Dwight D. Eisenhower in October 1953. The waters of the Rio Grande River have formed a beautiful 60-mile-long lake behind the dam. This dam was built for conservation, irrigation, power, flood control, and recreational purposes.
The park features camping, swimming, fishing, water skiing, and boating. There is a 1-mile, self-guided nature trail.
Admission $2 per day, per person 13 and older.
