At last count, New Mexico had 34 state parks. I only got to those presented here.
City of Rocks State Park
City of Rocks State Park is located in southwestern New Mexico about halfway between Silver City and Deming. The park is a geologic formation of weathered rock columns separated by narrow paths which, with a little imagination, resemble city streets; hence the name. City of Rocks has campsites, hiking trails, and picnic areas, and is great for mountain biking, hiking, wildlife viewing and birding, and stargazing. The Visitor Center has lots of displays and information, and restrooms with hot showers.
Conchas Lake State Park
Conchas Lake is located just northwest of Tucumcari, and is one of the largest lakes in New Mexico. Camping, boating, swimming, and fishing are the main activities at this park.
Coyote Creek State Park
Coyote Creek State Park is about an hour southeast of Taos in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The park is ideal for fly fishing, camping, hiking and birding.
Fenton Lake State Park
Fenton Lake State Park is located in the Jemez Mountains about 40 miles north of San Ysidro. Take NM Hwys 4 and 126 from San Ysidro. I liked Fenton Lake the best out of the state parks presented here. You have camping, fishing, hiking, and relaxing. (Oh, and cross-country skiing in the winter).
Navajo Lake State Park
I never actually camped at Navajo Lake. It's really more about boating, fishing, and swimming. I used to fly fish the San Juan River right below the dam (quality water).
Sugarite Canyon State Park
Sugarite Canyon State Park is located about 7 miles northeast of Raton. Take NM State Hwys 72 and 526 east to get there. Fishing, boating, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, and camping are all activities avilable in the Park.
