Two shoreline areas near the dam in New Mexico are part of the Navajo Reservoir State Park, featuring over 200 camping and picnic sites, and two improved boat ramps and a marina.  The river shorelines below the dam are also part of the state park.  An area in Colorado near the head of the lake is the Navajo State Recreation Area.  The reservoir is an excellent destination for camping, hiking, exploring, biking, and general boating, as well Smallmouth Bass, Black Crappie, Northern Pike, Channel Catfish, and Trout fishing.  The marinas, resorts, and launch ramps that surround the lake include; Sims Marina, Two Rivers Marina, Navajo Lake Marina, and Rosa Joint Venture.
