New Mexico’s Highest Waterfall

Brazos Falls are Active Mid-April through Mid-May

Each spring, the runoff from the snow on the Brazos Cliffs creates New Mexico’s highest waterfall. The Brazos Falls are a spectacular site and are best viewed from Corkins Lodge.

Winter Wonderland

Winter at Corkins Lodge is a truly magical time.

Our wilderness retreat is transformed into a winter wonderland with an amazing amount of snow. Each of our cabins comes with a fireplace or wood-burning stove stocked with firewood to keep you cozy.

Nature at its Best!

We stayed the Juniper cabin at Corkins Lodge and it was an amazing mix of rustic charm with modern appliances and great lodge decorations! Our view out our window was beautiful and we saw several deer stroll by each evening! We loved the swimming pool with gorgeous views of the cliffs! We also played outdoor games like bocce ball and horseshoes along with enjoying their game room and a rousing game of Ping Ping. Our host even had board games to take to our cabin on the one afternoon it rained. We loved the nearby fishing lake and mountain trails. One trail ended at the river and a treehouse with two comfy chairs with a spectacular view! If you enjoy peace, nature, and getting away from the hustle and bustle, this is an amazing place to stay!
