Coyote Creek State Park

Wildflowers along the stream at Coyote Creek State Park

Coyote Creek State Park is located in a remote area of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Angel Fire and Mora, New Mexico. 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.

Coyote Creek State Park offers a visitor center, group picnic shelter and 47 developed campsites, 17 of which offer electric hookups. There are restrooms and showers in the camping area with a playground nearby. The park also offers a centrally located RV dump station. For activities there's fishing, picnicking, hiking and wildlife watching.

Coyote Creek State Park is open 24 hours a day, every day. To get there: go 17 miles north of Mora on New Mexico Highway 434.
