Eagle Nest is known as the Gateway to the picturesque Enchanted Circle in the Northern Mountains of New Mexico. Situated on the North shore of the majestic Eagle Nest Lake, the area is bursting with old west culture. That includes a western downtown main street, early settlers museum, and western hospitality. Eagle Nest and the Moreno Valley area is the nature lover’s paradise with fishing, boating, hunting, camping, back packing, four-wheeling, hiking, and horseback riding. The Eagle Nest Lake is a 2400 acre lake with miles of hiking trail near the lake and in the Colin Neblett Wildlife Management area, with the beautiful State Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial five miles south.
For the angler or hunter, Eagle Nest Lake offers some of the best fishing for trophy Rainbow Trout, Kokonee Salmon and Yellow Perch. Trophy elk and deer hunting are some of the best in the west. Eagle Nest main street, Highway 64 or E. Therma Drive, is less than a mile long with shops carrying local and nationally made fine art and crafts, Southwest jewelry, antiques, fishing and hunting gear, kitchen goods, along with several dining and lodging options. We are host to many events throughout the year.
