There is an overlook facility and day use area at the end of the access road. All picnic shelters are covered and have raised grills.

All land at Jemez Canyon Dam is owned by Santa Ana Pueblo. Trespassers outside the developed area are subject to Pueblo law.

Geocaching is permitted at Corps' projects only with approval of the project manager. Contact the Cochiti Lake Project Office for approval.
