View Larger Map 

Ute Lake State Park is three miles west of Logan via NM 540.

Known for its little coves and inlets, Ute Lake is among the state's longest lakes, almost 13 miles long and cover 8,200 acres, but it is also narrow, only one mile across at its widest point. A popular family camping destination, this boating and fishing park also has good swimming, and wildlife. 

The deep-blue lake attracts a variety of boaters, and especially during summer, you are apt to see a mix of fishing boats, ski boats, personal watercraft, and sailboats. Windsurfing is particularly popular in spring. A concessionaire-operated marina rents small fishing boats and pedal-boats and sells fishing and boating supplies.

Anglers are here year-round, although the best fishing is in the spring and fall. The lake is known for excellent walleye fishing, and anglers have caught record-breaking small-mouth bass, plus crappie, bluegill and channel catfish.

The park has practically unlimited camping, with facilities that range from RV sites with hookups to isolated developed sites without hookups to primitive camping. Showers and RV hookups are located in both the North Area and Logan Park. Visitors looking for wildlife will see migratory birds, including ducks and geese, from late fall through early spring.

The park's facilities include: visitor center, group shelter, developed sites (142), electric sites (77), RV dump station, restrooms, showers, and marina.

  • camping
  • picnicking
