Fodor's Review

Created in 1962 when the dam was built, the eponymous lake at Navajo Lake State Park is a popular boating and fishing spot; you can rent boats at two marinas. Short trails lead to the lakeshore, and the 3½-mi-long cottonwood-shaded San Juan River Trail parallels the river down below the dam. Driving the narrow road across the top of the dam, with no guardrails, is a slightly hair-raising, memorable experience. A fishing permit is required.
