3 Reviews of Fenton Lake State Park
Nice lake, nice camping

Camping is by reservation only, it was quiet and when I went but I've been during holiday weekends and it is crazy. Great location for fishing, boating, picnics, and relaxing (when not many people are there). There is a smaller parking lot just south of the lake for those who don't want to walk around. Camping in surrounding areas off forest roads isn't bad but every time I have there is someone having parties and playing music till dawn.

Not on Holidays!

Crowded - granted it was Memorial Day, but it doesn't take much to overwhelm this small lake! It is certainly gorgeous and I'll definitely go back, I'll just make sure it's on a random Tuesday. If you are headed here and you don't need picnic tables or pit toilets, go just up the road for beautiful camping! TIP - go up to FS road 378 (next road just north of the lake) and drive a short distance for some amazing "primitive" camping spots filled with green grass and bright aspen trees - well worth it.

Fenton lake in Jemez, NM

Favorite place to camp, mountains and hot springs near by fishing at Fenton or the near by streams.
