Main Street Picnic Guide: New Mexico 
Navajo Lake State Park

1448 NM 511 #1
Navajo Dam, NM

Gate Hours: 24 hours

Navajo Lake is New Mexico's second largest lake--more than 15,000- acre ft. capacity --and offers the full gamut of water sports and services.

Pine River, the most developed area along the lake, includes a visitor center with interpretive exhibits, developed campgrounds, a day use area and a full service marina. Sims Mesa is across the lake, accessible by NM 527, and includes a visitor center with interpretive exhibits, developed campgrounds and a full service marina. The San Juan River area below the dam is world renowned for excellent trout fishing and includes wheelchair-accessible fishing facilities on the river, Cottonwood Campground, seven day use areas and several hiking trails.

The park contains both cold- and warm-water fish species and has wonderful temperatures in the summer in the '80's. Explore some of the many side canyon primitive areas.

Hillsides covered with pi�on and juniper created a forest atmosphere, and along the river provide the habitat for a variety of wildlife. The varied terrain and vegetation attracts all kinds of creatures. Watch for sun-basking lizards in summer and soaring bald eagles in winter.

Evidence of some of the earliest known villages in the Southwest are found in the area.
