Main Street Picnic Guide: New Mexico 
Clayton Lake State Park

141 Clayton Lake Rd.
Clayton, NM 88415
Gate Hours: 6 am - 9 pm

Clayton Lake State Park is 12 miles north of Clayton via NM 370.

Set among rolling grasslands, Clayton Lake State Park offers excellent trout, catfish and bass fishing. Walk a half-mile to the lake's spillway and see the internationally significant dinosaur trackway, containing more than 500 footprints dating back more than 100 million years.

Along the spillway, more than 500 dinosaur footprints have been preserved and identified. Plant-eating and carnivorous dinosaurs, as well as some ancient crocodiles, made these prints. Interpretive markers identify significant tracks and paleontological features on the walk. The best times to view the tracks are in the morning and late afternoon.

Several duck species -- including mallards, pintails, and teals -- frequent the lake, Canada geese and bald eagles are often seen.
