Heron Lake State Park has a great lake, nice campgrounds with free showers and many boon docking sites. We had spent several summers there when our kids were youg, canoeing, swimming, fishing, hiking. A neat area. Chama, NM is close by, maybe 20 to 25 miles away, where one can ride "the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad..the finest and most spectacular example of steam era mountain railroading in North America." It is a nice ride. http://www.cumbrestoltec.com/

A picturesque lake set among tall pines, designated a "quiet lake" where boats operate at no-wake speeds only. This park is known for its excellent sailing, fishing, cross-country skiing, and hiking.

Several scenic campgrounds line the shore of this scenic lake--primitive and full developed campsites are available for every taste.

Access the hiking and fishing trail along the gorgeous Rio Chama from the dramatic caprock stairway near Heron Dam. The 5.5 mile trail which crosses the river by suspension bridge, affords panoramic views and an adventurous route to neighboring El Vado Lake.
