Located only five minutes north of the Navajo Dam in the Todosio Canyon region, this nearly two and a half acre lot will put you in easy driving distance of all the great boating, fishing and water sports available at the nearby Marina. Situated on a well maintained dirt road with power nearby, this parcel is perfect for anyone looking for a spot to build their summer cabin or vacation getaway. Another nice thing about this land is its proximity to all the other great outdoor recreation activities offered in the nearby counties. If you ever get tired of taking your boat or jet ski to the marina, you can drive east to adjacent Rio Arriba County and explore the El Vado, Heron and Abiquiu Lakes. This property doesn't have to be seasonal and enjoyed only in the summer months, however. In the winter you can take advantage of the world famous Taos Ski Valley which is less than two hours to your east, or Telluride, which is just across the Colorado border and less than an hour and a half to your north. Best of all is that this property sits in one of the unincorporated areas of the county, meaning there are no Planning & Zoning restrictions and the indiscriminate parking of and living out of an RV is perfectly legal.
Property Specific Notes:
This property is located less than half a mile west of the 511. The road leading out from the highway is well maintained and passes at least one residence before encountering the subject property. Power can be found at this nearby home which sits roughly 2/10 of a mile from this parcel, meaning getting power extended to the land should not be difficult or expensive.
The access road actually goes through the property, dividing its northwestern most portion from the rest of the land. The remainder of the lot has a second road along its western boundary. This second road is not as well maintained but can be easily navigated by a four wheel drive or other off road capable vehicle.
As there are no planning & zoning laws in this part of the county, this property is ideal for those looking to experiment with alternative housing such as a tiny home, container home, earth ship home, or for those who just want to live out of their RV.
The lack of formal zoning law also suggests that this land can be used for a business such as RV/boat storage or other such enterprise which may take advantage of the nearby lake and the tourists who flock to it every summer to fish and swim in its waters.
This property has more trees and vegetation on it than we're used to seeing in this area, and like much of the land situated close to the canyons around the marina, some of the property has a rocky terrain. Anyone looking to build out here will likely need to invest in some landscaping and tree removal prior to consturction. That being said, the property also has a nice gradual incline to its south, meaning anyone who does choose to build on it will have nice views of the surrounding valley and the nearby Pine River.
Anyone looking to use the property for RV'ing or camping should know that the northwestern most portion (north of the road) is flat and can easily accomodate either of these activities.
Like much of the land in this area, a natural gas pumping station can be found nearby. Our photographer assures us that during his time shooting the property, he heard no more than a mild, barely audible droning.

The next lowest like-type property (ironically, about five lots over from this one) is listed for $21,000, making this the type of incredible savings we pride ourselves on here at Hemingway Land.
