Morphy Lake State Park is a state park of New Mexico, United States, located 7 miles (11 km) southwest of Mora in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The park is one of New Mexico's smaller state parks, at only 30 acres (120,000 m2), and the lake has a surface area of approximately 15 acres (61,000 m2).By using our Mora route builder app, you can arrange your visit to Morphy Lake State Park and other attractions in Mora.
The park is popular for fishing, camping, and picnicking, However there is no running water, so visitors must pack their own. The lake is stocked with trout, and kokanee salmon. Boats are allowed on the lake, but no gas powered motors are allowed. Its high altitude (8,000 ft) and location in northern New Mexico cause the lake to freeze over in the winter, allowing ice fishing to take place.

Been going to this small lake for several years now. The state park offers camping sites with a picnic table and fire ring. There are vault toilets an no access to clean water. Sites fill up quickly..... more »
