Abiquiu Lake is about 60 miles NW of Santa Fe, between Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch. Ir was formed by damming the Rio Chama and provides a cool respite during hot New Mexico summers. Camping, boating, fishing and other water recreation are very popular activities here. Abiquiu Lake sits in the shadow of Georgia O’Keeffe’s beloved Cerro Pedernal.
