Archuleta County, southeast of Durango

Navajo State Park in far southern Colorado centers on 15,000-acre Navajo Reservoir, which extends south of the Colorado border into New Mexico.

The park is open to campers and boaters all year, including houseboats. The boat ramp is closed in the winter, but boaters can rent slips at the Two Rivers Marina.

Campsites are open year round, and crappie, largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, trout, bluegill and catfish are in the water. A heated cabin is also for rent.

Bald eagles winter in the area and roost in trees by the reservoir, deer wander freely, and Canada geese stay for the winter or stop on the way south.
