Navajo Lake State Park

New Mexico

Home to the second largest lake in New Mexico, this state park is a hot spot for boating and lake-view camping. There are more than 4 miles of trails and it's a good launchpad for fly fishing on the nearby San Juan River. Stop by the park visitor center for a few exhibits and suggestions for activities. There is also a marina here.
