This is a smallish fishing lake 30 minutes off of Hwy 97, with plenty of camping places, boat rentals and restaurant/ store. Fun for the whole family. There is swimming and kayaking as well.

Although popular with x-country skiers, snow-shoers and snow-mobilers in (some) winters. I always hike the trails throughout Newberry Crater N.M. and enjoy fishing in the lakes (usually in a boat) during the summer
