Favorable summer breezes attract colorful wind-surfing boards to Storrie Lake State Park, which is also popular for fishing and boating. The visitor center features historical photos of the Santa Fe Trail and 19th century Las Vegas.
Activities for Everyone
The lake's serene waters are open for fishing year-round. Storrie Lake boasts consistent winds that provide excellent conditions for sailing and windsurfing.
Birdwatching is a must in order to view the geese and ducks that flock to the lake during seasonal migrations. Follow walking-trails through sagebrush-covered landscape spotted with cactus, yucca and wildflowers.
History with an Attitude
With the arrival of the Santa Fe Railway in 1879, Las Vegas and the surrounding area became a hangout of some the shadiest characters of the Old West, including Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid and Wyatt Earp.
Storrie Lake State Park is four miles north of Las Vegas via NM 518.
