“Colorado's Answer to Lake Powell”

Navajo Reservoir provides the principal storage for the Navajo Indian Irrigation Project which sends water to 110,000 acres of agricultural land on the Navajo Reservation. The reservoir's surface totals 15,600 acres, with about 3,000 acres on the Colorado side. The system supplies water for agriculture, industrial, municipal and recreational uses.​ Navajo State Park is a major recreational facility in southwest Colorado, drawing more than 300,000 visitors every year. The 2,100-acre park offers boating, fishing, trails, wildlife viewing, 138 camp sites, and three cabins. The park facilities opened in 1964, two years after completion of Navajo dam in New Mexico by the federal Bureau of Reclamation. The dam, built on the San Juan River, backed the water up 35 miles into Colorado. The dam was constructed as part of the Colorado River Storage Project, which also includes: the Aspinall Unit on the Gunnison River which formed Blue Mesa Reservoir; Flaming Gorge dam in Wyoming on the Green River; and Glen Canyon dam on the Colorado River.
