Campground Details

Open: Open all year
Number of Sites: 19

Set in the scenic Moreno Valley and surrounded by two of the state's highest peaks, Baldy Mountain and Wheeler Peek, this 2,400-acre lake is known for its kokanee salmon and rainbow trout fishing.

At 8,300 feet in elevation, the park offers a cool retreat from the summer heat for fisherman, boaters, campers and wildlife enthusiasts. The new campground offers 19 dry sites with a vault toilet and community water available. A new state of the art green visitor center features exhibits, a classroom, and expansive patio overlooking the lake.

An abundance of animals—elk, bear, mule deer, eagles, turkeys and other birds—inhabit the area, making Eagle Nest Lake an ideal location for wildlife viewing. In the winter, ice fishing and snowmobiling are popular sports when ice thickness permits. Snowmobiling is limited to the lake surface.

Eagle Nest Lake State Park is about 160 miles northeast of Albuquerque, and 32 miles east of Taos and 65 miles southwest of Raton off of U.S. 64 in northeastern New Mexico.
