HERON LAKE STORE WILL BE CLOSING FOR THE SEASON AFTER LABOR DAY WEEKEND 09/03/13
WELCOME TO HERON LAKE STORE! We are a seasonal store open from Memorial Day through Labor Day with everything you need for your summertime fun at Heron and El Vado Lakes and beyond! We are located 4 miles west from the intersection of Hwy 84 on Hwy 95 in the beautiful Chama valley of northern New Mexico. Heron Store is located close to some of the most productive fishing in New Mexico. We have RV and Marine Supplies, Ice, Fishing Licenses, Picnic Supplies, Firewood, Fishing Tackle and RV and Boat Storage.
Nearby Heron Lake offers very good fishing for Rainbow, Kokanee and large Lake Trout. El Vado Lake is a good place for water sports such as water skiing and riding jet skis. Many nice camp sites are available in the Heron and El Vado Lake campgrounds. The wild and scenic section of the Chama River is also close by. A short drive up to and around the famous Brazos Cliffs on Highway 64 takes you to beautiful Hopewell Lake in the San Juan Mountains. Nutrias and Canjilon Lakes are also nearby to the south on Highway 84 and the Brazos river is a short drive north on Highway 84. Deer, Elk and other wildlife abound in the area. Many other high country lakes and streams are nearby across the Colorado state line. In short this is big country - a vast sportsmens paradise!
The famous Cumbres and Toltec narrow gauge railway is a great way to see the sights and is very popular in the fall when the foliage begins to turn colors in September. It runs from Chama, New Mexico to Antonito, Colorado and there are dramatic and beautiful vistas at every turn. Chama also has many wonderful shops full of delightful souveniers.
HERON LAKE STORE - RIGHT ON YOUR WAY TO SUMMER TIME FUN!
