General Information

Navajo State Park
Copyright: - Colorado State Parks
Navajo State Park
Description - The focal point of Navajo State Park is Navajo Reservoir. The reservoir is 35 miles long encompassing 15,000 surface acres. There are three recreation sites along the New Mexican shoreline of the reservoir. Navajo State Park and Wildlife Area lie on the Colorado shoreline of the reservoir. The state park and wildlife area combine to provide visitors with access to 2,469 acres of public land.

The facilities in the state park include a campground with 71 sites. Showers, flush toilets, tables, grills and water hydrants are included within the campground. Other facilities include a picnic area, visitor center, boat ramp and marina.

Recreation - Boating brings most visitors to Navajo State Park. The park can boast the largest boat ramp in the state of Colorado. A marina in the park provides a variety of rental boats. Fishing is also a big draw, but be sure to be prepared with a New Mexican fishing license if you plan to fish from the lake or the river below the dam. Fishing is good for trout, bluegill, catfish, crappie, bass and salmon. In addition to boating and fishing, visitors can enjoy picnicking, camping, water skiing, jet skiing, sailboarding, hiking and cross-country skiing.

Climate - The park is located in the plateau region of the state. The area is semiarid with hot summers. Average summer temperatures may reach into the 100s with little relief at night. Winter temperatures can be cold with precipitation from the surrounding mountains reaching the area. Always dress in layers and use sunscreen on any exposed areas. The elevation is close to 6,000 feet, which allows for warmer weather than the surrounding mountainous regions.

Location - This state park is located in the southwestern region of Colorado on the New Mexican border. It is located at the junction of the Piedra and San Juan Rivers. State Highway 151 provides access to the northern reaches of the park.
