A popular year-round retreat surrounded by beautiful ponderosa pine forests, Fenton Lake features a cross-country ski and biathlon trail and wheelchair-accessible fishing platforms.

Prior to becoming a state park, Fenton Lake was purchased by the Department of Game and Fish as a resting and nesting area for migratory waterfowl and a refuge for other wildlife. Now more a fishing haven than a duck drop, waterfowl, turkey, deer, muskrat, elk and bobcat still can be observed.

Fenton Lake State Park is 33 miles northwest of San Ysidro via N.M. 4 and N.M. 126. The area is owned by the New Mexico State Game Commission and the Department of Game and Fish, with significant funding from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act.
