Main Street Picnic Guide: New Mexico 
Morphy Lake State Park

PO Box 477
Guadalupita, NM 87722

Gate Hours: 24 hours

Sitting pretty at 8,000 feet among ponderosa pines and surrounded by mountains, Morphy Lake is the perfect place to get away from it all, catch a few fish and enjoy the scenery.

Morphy Lake State Park is seven miles south of Mora on NM 94 and four miles west on a newly paved access road.

The park has plenty of camping and picnicking sites, and is ideal for primitive camping. The lake is stocked with trout and is a great place to launch a canoe or kayak. A hiking trail around the lake provides access for anglers. Hidden among a forest of pine trees, Morphy Lake State Park is found at the end of a three mile road that is steep, but has recently been paved to accommodate visitors who do not have a high terrain vehicle. 

Located in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, privacy is easily found throughout this secluded park. Visitors are reminded this is a PACK-IN, PACK-OUT park.

This small, scenic lake is stocked with trout, and in winter visitors frequent the lake for ice fishing. Boating is limited to electric motors.  Surrounded by lush pine forest, the park lies close to the Pecos Wilderness. Picnic sites are furnished with tables and fireplaces, but no drinking water.
