Things To Do



Explore the numerous side canyons and primitive sites of Navajo Lake State Park. With comfortable summer temperatures in the 80s, cold and warm-water fish species abound here. Hillsides covered with pinon and juniper create a forest atmosphere that, along with the river, provides a habitat for a variety of wildlife. This varied terrain and vegetation attracts creatures like sun-basking lizards in summer and soaring bald eagles in the winter.
