Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness

Reviewed By EclecticChooser - North Las Vegas, Nevada

Incredible eroded formations abound within less than a mile from the parking lot (make sure you check carefully). However, there are no facilities, not even a trash barrel. I discovered a couple spots where less responsible visitors left disgusting evidence of their carelessness along the trail. Pack out your toilet paper and waste, or don't visit!

Salmon Ruins

I haven't been here despite visiting Farmington for over 20 years. Well worth a stop. A great little museum attached. Support your local ruins and help them improve their outside exhibit. A neat little gift store with great native carvings for sale.

I always enjoy hanging out here. The food is good, although we did not eat this time. The beer is good, staff friendly and attentive and I enjoy their beer. Neat old building, fun place. What more can I say.

Berg/Animas Trail

Reviewed By Rivercat13 - Farmington, New Mexico

I love this park, it is a nice walk, bike ride, run, rafting, taking pictures, feeding ducks,there is so much to do. This is a nice place to take a stroll, there are always people there so you don't feel unsafe. When the warmer months approach you are more than likely going to see the wildlife, we have come across deer, skunks, ducks, they don't bother you as long as you don't bother them. One of my favorite places to go.

Farmington Museum

Reviewed By MarKSaxophone - Farmington, New Mexico

The Museum is also a river front location with a nice view, and has a large patio and grass area suitable for events, such as weddings, festivals, and other events. They host traveling exhibits, as well as a history of Farmington and oil/gas history. It is a fairly new facility.

Pinon Hills Golf Course

Reviewed By Jerry K - Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States

Really enjoyed our trip to Piñon Hills GC. Beautiful setting, challenging course with numerous tee set ups. Women's tees worked well for my wife who is a straight hitter but not a long hitter. I played the blues and was challenged with longer second shots. If you you would rather have short second shots the whites are on average 25 yards shorter. Great two days of golf. Staff was great as was a member we got teed up with.

Lions Wilderness Park Amphitheater

Reviewed By Edie F - Farmington, New Mexico

We attended the Theater Ensemble Arts production of M.A.S.H a couple of evenings ago at the Lions Wilderness Park Amphitheater. It was a beautiful, cool evening and the show was outstanding! We have gone to other productions at the amphitheater, but this was the best EVER! Gorgeous setting, excellent show. The full moon was an extra-special bonus!

B-Square Ranch

Reviewed By northernneckinn - Tappahannock, Virginia

Just did the electrical and mechanical tour which went through three buildings for two hours and you would be amazed at the strange stuff. Electrical switchgear, insulators, generators, fuses, meters, control panels you name it there is a section covering it. Also 1900's medical, aircraft, cars, printing, television, broadcast, tanks, tractors, oil drilling equipment, stereo and tape, and a vast collection of computer hardware from the early days and since! Quite unbelievable really! Well worth the trip if you are even remotely interested in electricity, electrical and mechanical bric a brac and some iconic items of their era!

Farmington Lake

Reviewed By PartTimeGypsy - Farmington, New Mexico

Farmington Lake is our drinking water, but this year a small area is now dedicated to swimming. It's a nice sandy beach with an enclosed area, and some sections for lap swimming, I will be utilizing the latter soon! The one thing I would suggest is signs explicitly stating any children not potty trained are required to wear the swimmer type diapers. We DO NOT need a crypto outbreak here! The water needs to be kept as clean as possible and regular diapers threaten this.

Lions Wilderness Disc Golf Course

Reviewed By Karen B - Farmington, New Mexico, United States

This is a great frisbee golf course. You get to hike over sandstone cliffs and through the juniper and pinon trees. The front 9 is fairly easy, the back nine more challenging, and the 3rd course is impossible!! Take water, wear good walking shoes and wear sunscreen.
