Fenton Lake State Park is 33 miles northwest of San Ysidro via NM4 and NM126.

A popular year-round retreat surrounded by beautiful ponderosa pine forests, Fenton Lake features a cross-country ski and biathlon trail and wheelchair accessible fishing platforms.

The popular film, The Man Who Fell To Earth, was shot at Fenton Lake in the mid-1970s, and tells the story of an extra-terrestrial character who came to earth when the water on his native planet dried up.

Prior to becoming a state park, Fenton Lake was purchased by State Game and Fish as a resting and nesting area for migratory waterfowl, and a refuge
for other wildlife. Now more of a fishing haven than a duck drop, waterfowl, turkey, deer, muskrat, elk and bobcat can still be observed.

An ideal spot to laze about in a canoe or raft if fishing seems too aerobic.
