Motorized Boating in Pagosa Country

Navajo State Park, home of Navajo Reservoir, is located 30 miles from Pagosa Springs. As Colorado's answer to Lake Powell, Navajo boasts 15,000 acres of water surface and 150 miles of shoreline. The reservoir is so large that it extends 20 miles into New Mexico. Boating and jetskiing options are endless, with boat rentals available (call 970-883-BOAT for more information).

The park offers a full-service marina with boat rentals, visitor center, rental cabins, ample tent and RV camping, picnic areas and nature trails. About a third of the reservoir is located in Colorado, while two-thirds lie in New Mexico. As licensed Colorado anglers cross the New Mexico line, they must also possess a valid New Mexico fishing license.


To access the park and reservoir from Pagosa Springs, travel approximately 17 miles west on U.S. 160, then turn south on Colo. 151. Drive another 18 miles to Arboles, then turn left onto CR 982 and proceed another two miles to the park.
