Often compared to Lake Powell for its stunning scenery, Navajo’s lake covers over 15,000 acres when full and extends more than 35 miles, into New Mexico. Because of Navajo Reservoir’s location in extreme southwestern Colorado, the central part of the reservoir never freezes in the winter, making it ideal for year-round boating. Along the San Juan River, several new designated trails throughout the park and miles of outstanding areas to hike, mountain bike or horseback riding are waiting for you.
