Conchas Dam, New Mexico 88416
One of the state’s largest lakes includes 60 miles of varied shoreline, secluded coves, canyons, and sandy beaches. Ancient rock formations date back to the Age of Dinosaurs. Observant visitors may discover the fossils of ancient sea creatures.
Conchas Lake stretches 11 miles southwest along the Conchas River, and about 14 miles along the South Canadian River in eastern New Mexico. Located northwest of Tucumcari, Conchas Lake offers varied shoreline, secluded coves, canyons, and sandy beaches. Although most of the 88 miles of shoreline is privately owned, the 14% owned and maintained by the U.S. Corps of Engineers provides excellent opportunity for fishing, swimming, camping, boating, hiking, and more.
