Discover Navajo State Park, CO


Near the border between New Mexico and Colorado, you can find the small, quaint town of Arboles on the Navajo Reservoir. Arboles is the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself on the riverfront deep within the Colorado mountains. When you begin searching for RV rentals in Archuleta County, you'll also find that there's no better place to spend your time than Navajo State Park.

This park offers a variety of outdoor activities for nature lovers of all kinds. Sit back and relax on the banks of the Navajo Reservoir. On either side of the lake, you can experience vistas of the forested mountains that Colorado has become famous for. Whether you enjoy watching wildlife, boating, or camping with an RV in the middle of nature, this park has something for you.

Additionally, if you enjoy your history, you'll also find that Navajo State Park has a fairly rich origin story. This park sits on land that was once inhabited by ancestral Puebloans around 1050 A.D. Centuries later, the Ute and Navajo tribes both settled in the area during the 14th century. The explorers of the Dominquez-Escalante expedition arrived in the late-18th century.

Getting Outdoors

Considering the relatively unpopulated area that surrounds the park, you can expect the trails to be alive with wildlife, both in fauna and flora alike. Navajo State Park has several hiking trails that you can trek. Some trails overlook the lake and the marina, whereas some others take you along the old railroad. The Sambrito Wetlands Trail is a popular route which offers glimpses of the park's wetlands as well as beautiful views of the lake and San Juan River Valley.

While mountain bikes are allowed on the trails, some of the paths might be too steep to bike safely. The shortest trail comes in at 1,008 feet long whereas the longest trail comes in at 6,024 feet.

Water lovers will be spoiled for choice here. Whether you stay by the Navajo Reservoir or you'd rather walk down to the Piedra and San Juan River, you can rest assured knowing that there are many waterfront places where you can sit down, relax, and take in the views. You can also cast a line for crappie and bass, or you can launch your boat to further explore this 15,000-acre lake.

Camping at Navajo State Park

Navajo State Park features more than 100 sites, many of which welcome RVs. The campgrounds that you will want to check out include Carracas, Rosa, and Tiffany. Keep in mind that the Tiffany Campground only allows for RVs that are 25 feet in length, whereas the others can comfortably accommodate RVs up to 55 feet in length.

Carracas Campground features electric hookups as well as modern shower buildings, restrooms, a dump station, and picnic areas. One thing to note is that the electric sites here are only available from April to October. Otherwise, you'll have to rely on the full hookup campsites to power your motorhome rental.

Rosa Campground offers lakeside sites with full hookups, as well as a camper services building with restrooms and showers. Finally, 25 RV sites at the Tiffany Campground accommodate RVs up to 25 feet long, making this an excellent option for those in a small camper or trailer.

As for pets, this park is fairly lenient on allowing your pets to stay with you. Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome to accompany you in the campground and on the park's trails.

Exploring the Area

When you go camping at Navajo State Park, you'll want to explore the towns and attractions surrounding the area. Around 20 miles to the northwest, you'll find that the Southern Ute Cultural Center has much to offer in terms of history on the area's indigenous cultures. This is a place that any history buff would want to stop at during their stay at Navajo State Park. On the other hand, if you enjoy art, you might find that the Museum of Impressionism in Durango is a more interesting attraction. This museum is a little bit further away, just over 50 miles northwest, but being able to see some of the impressionist paintings there might be well worth the drive.

Other Arboles campers may prefer to explore Chimney Rock National Monument, just 17 miles northeast along CO-151. This sacred site is rich in Puebloan history and offers a unique chance to see ancient archeological sites and the homes of indigenous peoples. From the summit of Chimney Rock, you'll be able to enjoy sweeping vistas of New Mexico on a clear day.

The cuisine of the area offers, as you'd expect, a blend of Mexican and American food. As for stocking up on the important things, head to the small town of Arboles, located just a couple miles away. You can pick up basic supplies here, but if you find yourself needing something more, Ignacio is located about an hour away.
