Navajo Dam, NM is a diverse little village nestled in the heart of the San Juan River Valley. The population of Navajo Dam varies according to the season. Our residents range from longtime inhabitants to newly retired folks finally getting to move to their fishing mecca.
While Navajo Dam is widely known as a premier fishing and boating destination visitors shouldn't overlook the majestic mesas and mountains surrrounding us.
Anyone who has been on the river or fished the lake has looked up in wonder imagining the wild beginnings of this spectacular corner of our state. Exploring the many roads crisscrossing the county can open up an ancient world of gnarled trees, tranquil valleys and massive rock faces with breathtaking panaramic vistas. Along the way you could see the petroglyphs at Simon Canyon or even small defensive fortresses called "pueblitos" perched on the edges of rocky cliffs in many of our local canyons.
So next trip up along with your fishing gear, bring some hiking boots and get out and about !
