Coyote Creek State Park is nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains along a meandering stream. Enclosed by a forest of spruce and pine, the small valley displays abundant wildflowers and beautiful fall foliage. The park is ideal for fishing, family camping and leisurely nature walks. The 462-acre state park is bisected by Coyote Creek, probably the most-densely stocked trout stream in all New Mexico. This is a heavily forested area and the campsites are spread out to give folks more privacy than is usual in a state park setting.
