Heron Lake

Heron Quite Lake, Home to Big Trout
Rio Grande Sun

   The waters of Heron Lake have yielded record sized lake trout, as well as kokanee salmon and rainbow trout. The area is a prime birdwatching area, including eagles in the winter and osprey in the summer (again prime fishing). It's less than an hours drive from our mesa, Vista de Pedernal.

Mule deer and elk are often seen within the boundaries of the park. Located at an elevation of over 7,000 feet, Heron is just the place for a cool getaway to escape the heat of summer.

There is camping, both tent and vehicle ..with hookups available (fee based).
