Chloride

An Englishman named Harry Pye, a mule skinner and prospector, was delivering freight for the U.S. Army from Hillsboro to Camp Ojo Caliente in 1879 when he discovered silver in the canyon where Chloride is now located. After completing his freighting contract, he and two others returned to the area in 1881 and staked a claim. A tent city grew up nearby and then a town, originally called Pyetown, then Bromide.

Testimonial

We came to Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort because the park and the facilities are absolutely spotless, the managers and staff are very friendly and helpful and the other campers are very friendly, which just makes this a "fun" place to stay.
