Navajo Lake Marina Information

The marina is situated on the southern end of the reservoir, which stretches for more than 35 miles through the pinion and cedar covered hills of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. At an elevation of 6,100 feet, Navajo Lake offers visitors warm summer days for boating and cool nights for camping along its many secluded coves.

We love this marina and just bought a cute little houseboat that's moored there. It's just a great place to spend summers. I can't wait to spend every moment at Navajo Lake Marina next summer!

Called the day before, as well as the morning of our boat rental and them that I informed will be coming from OUT OF State and driving 3 hours each way with KIDS.Was informed to come down and we can rent two ski boats for 2 hours each. Once I arrived at the state park the Ranger informed me I cannot go to the Marina as it is on the state park priority and only New Mexico residents are allowed in at this time due to COVID-19 based on governor restrictions.The Ranger stated I was one of many that he had to turn back because Navajo Lake Marina was not informing their customers they must be state residents to enter the park/Marina.I called Navajo Lake Marina and was told: we did not think the ranger would be there on a Thursday and that is why we told you to come. (Hoping I can slip by)I confirmed that they knew I was out of state, driving 3 hours each way and not a New Mexico resident.The ranger spoke to Navajo Lake Marina using my phone on speaker. The Ranger pointed out that they knew this rule is in place and he cannot make exceptions. He also pointed out that the website still does not specify New Mexico residents only at this time as it should.Next I spoke to the owner who promised to:1. Text me his number2. Call me and arrange a fix for the next morning so we can rent the boatsNeither of these happened. I called and asked the operator to have him call me back as discussed and he did not.My issues:1. We (3 families) wasted a full day and half of our 5 day vacation in Colorado (I am from Texas). The day we drove down and the day I waited for his call to come back down as he stated he has a “workaround” and will have spoken to the governor by then.2. After the kids saw the lake, got super excited and out of the car after a long drive, we had to take them back for another 3 hour drive back to the hotel in Colorado.3. Never even got a call back or the respect I would expect to be shown to a customerI will reach out to the governor to find out why a business they are associated with is not following their guidelines. I truly cannot express the disappointment we faced, especially the kids crying on the way back.I will be sure the other families write a review as well.

Navajo Lake Marina is my most favorite marina in New Mexico. There are benches, a splash pad for the kids, a small little fishing area for the kids, and a whole lot of water crafts rent. The bathrooms are extra clean, and the store has everything you need! I highly recommend Navajo Lake Marina.

The marina is amazing. Boat, jetski, kayak rentals are available. Fishing rods and supplies for sale in the shop. A great variety of snacks also available at the shop, you could live on this lake and never have to go to town. You can rent a house boat for the night or a pontoon for the day. It’s a great place to take the family and much nicer than any other marina in New Mexico.

Let us reserve and drive 90 mins to them then refused service due to COVID. Absolutely nothing on their website about being closed to everyone but NM residents. Manager was exasperated, didn't care. Wasted time and gas. Go to Two River Marina in CO, friendly, informative and helpful.

DO NOT RENT EQUIPMENT HERE! Our tubing rope snapped from being pulled by their pontoon boat at 5mph and they charged us for the failure of the nylon rope. Our jetski tailing the boat sucked up the rope and got busted for the day after only 2 hours out of 8. They were able to fix and it works perfectly fine but they charged us for the full day even though we only had it for a quarter of what we were supposed to because of their faulty rope. They were extremely short with us about the whole situation and do not offer insurance on their water vehicles. They are brutal and will charge you for every possible thing they can. If you do rent, I would run every single inch of every single piece of equipment through a fine toothed comb.

We ate at the patio and will not be returning. Order was in correct, hair in the food, and only one of the 4 working staff was wearing a mask.

Love this marina. Nice people and almost everything you need (they don't sell beer). The water is cold at this lake so not the best for water sports but if you such it up and plunge in you get used to it. If you just like to float around and fish this is it.

Great family friendly fun. Went for the annual salmon snagging. Didn't catch anything but what an experience!(If you are planning to salmon snag be sure to take lots of extra hooks. If you need extra snagging hooks they can be purchased at the Marina.)

Navigating the marina parking lots and loading docks are a hassle. The updated Marina is a good start but more needs added...changing room with lockers (not everyone is there to get on their houseboat)and a 2nd pedestrian boardwalk to parking lot AWAY from the busy boat ramp. ALSO... the Marina and their security boat affiliated with the CoastGuard NEED to get an AED on hand!!! With the nearest ambulance 20-25min drive away better resources are needed to aid the many visitors.

Currently, all Four Corner States (Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona) have mandated shelter in place policies. This, in combination with rules limiting the number of people in public and private gatherings, makes it impossible for venues to host shows.
