Things To Do

Overview

Explore one of New Mexico's longest lakes, at almost 13 miles long! Known for its little coves and inlets, Ute Lake State Park is a popular family camping, boating, swimming, fishing, and wildlife-viewing park. The deep-blue lake also attracts a variety of boaters, especially during summer when you are apt to see a mix of fishing boats, ski boats, personal watercraft, and sail-boats. Windsurfing is particularly popular in spring. A concessionaire-operated marina rents small fishing boats and pedal-boats and sells fishing and boating supplies. Anglers are here year-round, although the best fishing is in the spring and fall. Visitors looking for wildlife will see migratory birds, including ducks and geese, from late fall through early spring.
