Navajo Lake is located in the hills of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado at an elevation of 6,100 feet. Navajo Dam is one of the largest earthen dams in the world and created the lake which is 35 miles long with over 250 miles of shore line. Summertime temperatures reach 85 to 100 degrees although quite cool at night.
The lake is well known for the abundance of trophy Brown and Rainbow Trout and catches of sizable Largemouth Bass are not uncommon. The marina has 190 covered slips and 40 in the open.
There are many remote coves for camping as well as full campsites provided by the Park Service.
