Located in New Mexico's northern mountains, El Vado Lake State Park offers fishing, boating, water-skiing, and winter cross-country skiing.
Eagles in Winter
The lake and surrounding area are a major wintering ground for bald eagles and other birds such as red-tail hawks, water ouzels, and ospreys.
El Vado Townsite
In the early 1900s, before the lake was constructed, the town of El Vado was a noisy, bustling railroad and lumber center and the largest town in the county.
El Vado Lake State Park is 17 miles southwest of Tierra Amarilla via NM 112.
