Navajo Lake NM

I'm planning on going to Navajo Lake and would like to know where the best camping sites are at. We plan on taking our 23 foot safari and my sister is taking her 25 foot tradewind. We are going to stay a week and would like to know if anyone knows is familiar with the different campsites.

Cottonwood Campground; Best by a Dam Site

I personally love Cottonwood Campground on the San Juan River below the dam. You have two other choices that are less appealing to me; but who knows, you may prefer them. One is above the dam on the west side overlooking the lake. The other is on the east side of the lake above the dam. As I recall, neither of thes campsites is actually on the lake shore.

Please be sure to describe the campground you visit and take lots of pictures.

I'll be sure to take pictures. Do the other camping areas have boat access?

Next to Elephant Butte, Navajo Lake is New Mexico's largest lake--more than 15,000- acre capacity--and offers the full gamut of water sports and services. It contains both cold- and warm-water fish species.

Camping
Pine River, the most developed area along the lake, includes a visitor center with interpretive exhibits, developed campgrounds, a day use area and a full service marina. Sims Mesa is across the lake, accessible by NM 527, and includes a visitor center with interpretive exhibits, developed campgrounds and a full service marina. The San Juan River area below the dam is world renowned for excellent trout fishing and includes wheelchair-accessible fishing facilities on the river, Cottonwood Campground, seven day use areas and several hiking trails.
