PARK ALERT: Upgrades to the vault toilets and roads are in progress and will continue into the fall of 2024. Learn more here.

The Jemez Mountains provide the backdrop for this stunning year-round retreat surrounded by beautiful ponderosa pine forests.

Fenton Lake State Park is a mellow mountain escape. The Rio Cebolla flows through the park and the lake provides an opportunity to fish and canoe. The park also attracts campers, hikers, and cross-country skiers. There is even a fun playground for the kids.

Stocked with rainbow trout from fall through spring, the lake is home to German brown trout, and is an ideal spot for flyfishing. Although most anglers prefer the warmth and comfort of summer, there is also winter ice fishing.

Park Elevation 7,650 ft
