3 Reviews of Eagle Nest Lake
Decent stop going through the area

We just needed somewhere to stay for the night as we went through the area and it’s only $10 to camp for the night. The lake is really pretty! The campground itself is very basic. There’s a few reservable sites and the rest are walk up (19 in total). There were only vault toilets but very well maintained which was nice. It would be great if you were planning on lots of lake activities and wanted to be close but for us it was just a great place to rest from driving all day.

Chilly in April

April is a little early in the season, so there were lots of open spaces and was still a little cold…

Camping is OK, find something nearby

This park isn't really meant for camping in my opinion although you can. I would find a nearby state park to camp in (Cimarron Canyon) and just visit the lake and town. If you have a camper, this one would be ok. The bathrooms are pretty nice and the scenery is awesome, but it doesn't really feel like camping. Eagles Nest is awesome though, and you are a short drive to Angel Fire, Red River and Taos. The fishing is great on the lake too, specially if you have a boat. If not, you can rent one from the local shop and even take a guide if you want. Trolling for trout is the best way to catch lots of fish in my opinion. You can also snag for Salmon during the spawn. Overall, great place to visit but I would find another camping spot nearby.
