This Picturesque Lake In New Mexico Will Complete Your Summer

The Land of Enchantment is full of beautiful state parks, but this one holds the largest and most breathtaking lake in all of New Mexico. With campgrounds, hiking trails, boating, and so much more, this lake isn’t just the perfect scenery, but there’s so much to do! You can spend hours upon this water, so you might as well just pitch a tent and stay the night (right on the beach). There’s no better destination for a summer day than this absolutely picturesque lake.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
