Some of the best fishing spots in New Mexico, hunting areas, and the certainly the best campfire spot on the river!

The river will be in your front yard!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Our family purchased the cabin in '94 and have fixed it up to the cute lil cabin on the river you see today. We love this spot! We think you will enjoy and love it as much as we do. We love our a-frame, Gingerbread or Swiss Chalet as some have called it. The cabin is the best spot on the river, an amazing spot! We think you will think so too!

Why the Owner Chose Navajo Dam, NM, USA:
Most beautiful spot on the river. Reason enough! So many wins! Great fishing just steps from the cabin, BBQ, picnic tables, fire pit, horseshoes and pits, grassed yards, huge trees, space to breathe, private and enclosed property, the hummingbirds, deer and other wildlife galore! Last renter guy spotted a Bobcat the other day!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Fully set up and comfy Cabin; your own private property on the river. Need I say more? Views, sounds, fishing, wildlife, peace and quiet, etc... Short drive to the fun of the lake. Bring your boat and toys or rent them at the marina. Boating, float fishing, fly and standard fishing, tubing the river, jet skiing, dirt bikes, ATV's, four wheeling, exploring ancient sites, and more, more, more..... Fantastic! I'm sitting on the covered and screened in porch, writing this description. I'm listening to the river, some music and the camp fire in the fire pit crackling away.
