Take a trip around the El Vado Reservoir! This beautiful 3200 acre lake is home to a number of quiet coves along the shoreline that harbor fantastic fishing. Take your canoe or kayak out and explore as much as you wish. This lake is open to motorized boats, so be aware. Birdwatching is plentiful at the lake and you have the opportunity to head down the Rio Chama if you are an experienced kayaker, or up a few miles of the Rio Chama at the northern end of the lake (during excellent boating conditions only) if you are a beginner. There are a number of places to camp, both primitive and developed around the lake, and up the Rio Chama canyon (where there is no fee). There is a $5 per vehicle entrance fee and an $8 - $10 camping fee.
