General Information

Cimarron Canyon State Park
Copyright: - New Mexico State Parks
Cimarron Canyon State Park
Description - The New Mexico state parks system is a tapestry of natural wonders, historic sites, and recreational resources.

Attractions - The park system includes many lakes and reservoirs, trail systems connecting the parks with federal lands, botanical and geological interpretive sites, botanical gardens, and even a zoo.

Recreation - The 31 parks in the system offer just about every opportunity for outdoor recreation reasonably imaginable. The reservoirs offer a variety of water sports and fishing, many trails are open to bikers and equestrians in addition to hikers. Programs, led by park rangers, inform and entertain visitors with a variety of topics from natural history and geology to local history and legends.

The New Mexico State Parks Division is pleased to announce the expansion of a centralized campsite reservation system. Now in its second season, the program includes 28 of 31 parks. Visitors can make reservations up to 90 days in advance by calling, toll free, 1-877-NM-4-RSVP (1-877-664-7787). Call center hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time).

Climate - The terrain of New Mexico ranges from high mountains to low desert, creating a wide variety of climates and micro-climates. Count on cool to cold nights year round as the arid climate commonly produces a greater variance in temperatures within a 24 hour period than may occur in some other parts of the country.

Most areas experience cool to cold winter weather due to the general high elevation of the region. The southern areas of the state normally don't see much snow in winter and experience very warm summers. The northern regions and higher elevations can see heavy snow accumulate during the winter and many mountain passes are not maintained. The higher elevations offer much cooler summer temperatures and relief from the heat of the lower elevations.

Location - State park are located in every region of the state.
