Fenton Lake State Park

455 Fenton Lake Road

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 there is a fishing and canoeing lake too. The park also attracts campers, hikers and cross-country skiers. There's even a fun playground for the kids.

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

Super beautiful, but super busy. The lake is packed all around and the campground has tons of vehicle traffic. Park rangers seemed to be patrolling throughout the night which woke us up every time they drove past. Great fishing at the lake and the creek. Hawks galore. Tons of hummingbirds. Lots of rodents too, so watch your food. Bathrooms were in decent shape. Some sites were much closer to each other than ours, which had some nice separation. Our site had a bunch of trash that we had to pick up before setting up camp. Nearby dumpsters were convenient. The drive is beautiful as well. All in all, it’s pretty good.

Very nice and fun place to go relax look at the lake people fishing. You do have to pay $5 for the day. There's an area where you can rent rent for special locations.

Beautiful, peaceful place to get away from the rat race. The campground is great, they're clean, spacious, and there are plenty of restrooms.

Fenton Lake is a great park but there are just too many people there. Often loud radios in the campground. Nearly always loud radio, yapping dogs, and parents yelling at their kids along the lake.
