Bluewater Lake State Park

This serene lake, located 25 miles west of Grants, is set in a pinon-juniper landscape with views towards the Zuni Mountains. The park offers camping, hiking, birding, horseback riding and fishing. And not just any fishing – you’ll find some of the best tiger muskie fishing at Bluewater Lake!

Park Elevation 7,554 ft

Effective Monday, November 16, 2020, NM State Parks will temporarily shut down for two weeks through November 30th in accordance with the Public Health Order. All special events through the end of the calendar year have been canceled. Thank you.
