The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers had announced that Abiquiu Lake day use areas that are scheduled to reopen Saturday include the Cerrito Day Use Area, the Overlook Day Use Area including picnic areas and the downstream Rio Chama Day Use Area.

The Riana campground and the boat ramp will remain closed at this time. The lake is open for paddle craft. Motorized boats are not allowed on the lake until further notice. The public is required to bring their own life jackets as the Loaner Life Jacket program is currently not in operation.

Due to low water levels, the swim beach area is not designated. However, the beach is open for swimming.

The main office/visitor center is open for phone calls, but is closed for public walk-ins at this time.

Day use fees have been waived until October 1, 2020. Normally, these fees are collected at Abiquiu from April 15 through October 15.
