Morphy Lake State Park
Sitting pretty at 8,000 feet among ponderosa pines and surrounded by mountains, Morphy Lake is the perfect place to get awat from it all, catch a few fish and enjoy the scenery.
The park has plenty of camping and picknicking sites, and is ideal for primitive camping. The lake is stocked with trout and is a great place to launch a canoe or kayak. A hiking trail around the lake provides access for anglers. Hidden among a forest of pine trees, Morphy Lake State Park is found at the end of a three mile road that is steep, but has recently been paved to accomodate visitors who do not have a high terrain vehicle. Located in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, privacy is easily found throughout this secluded park. Visitors are reminded this is a PACK-IN, PACK-OUT park.
