The swim beach at Cochiti lake will re-open Saturday after being closed for construction, The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Albuquerque District, has announced.

The construction was to repair and improve day-use shelters and other infrastructure damaged in last year’s September flood.

Cochiti Lake offers camping, hiking, picnicking, fishing, boating and other outdoor recreation at two public recreation areas: the Cochiti Recreation Area on the west side of the lake and the Tetilla Peak Recreation Area on the east side.

Each recreation area has a boat ramp for launching vessels. A visitor center is open to the public near the park headquarters. Scenic overlooks are on both sides of the lake.
