Main Street Picnic Guide: New Mexico 
Heron Lake State Park

PO Box 159
Los Ojos, NM 87551

Gate Hours: 24 hours

Heron Lake State Park is 11 miles west of Tierra Amarilla via US highways 64 and 84 and NM 95.

A picturesque lake set among tall pines, Heron Lake State Park has been designated a "quiet lake" where boats operate at no-wake speeds only. This park is known for its excellent sailing, fishing, cross-country skiing, and hiking.

Lake is ideal for sailing and windsurfing, as well as fishing for record-size trout. Ice fishing is popular in winter for the arctic set.

Several scenic campgrounds line the shore of this scenic lake--primitive and full developed campsites are available for every taste.

Access the hiking and fishing trail along the gorgeous Rio Chama from the dramatic caprock stairway near Heron Dam. The 5.5 mile trail which crosses the river by suspension bridge, affords panoramic views and an adventurous route to neighboring El Vado Lake.
