Navajo Lake is the second largest lake in New Mexico (with a bit spilling over into Colorado). It’s a water sports paradise. If you want to boat, sail, paddleboard, it’s all there. You can relax and enjoy the view from a pontoon or explore the canyons by kayak. A top fishing destination, it’s filled with trout (brown, rainbow and cutthroat), largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, catfish and kokanee salmon.
The lake is surrounded by hillsides and mesas where you might see sun-basking lizards, bald eagles in flight and peregrine falcons. There are a few mountain lions and bear roaming around. It might be interesting to see them, but you’ll want to pass on that experience.
We do not know of any cabin rentals on this lake currently.
