About Us - Our Story


11 Individual Cabins in Northern New Mexico

Corkins Lodge was founded in 1930 by Phil Corkin Sr. who transformed a private fishing camp into a hospitality lodge for visitors who wanted to experience the beautiful Northern New Mexico wilderness and outdoor activities like fishing. 

Today Corkins Lodge has lovingly maintained the rustic character of the original lodge and undergone restoration and many upgrades and improvements. 

Why Corkins Lodge?

Corkins Lodge is a peaceful, lovely retreat for anyone who wants to step outside of their daily life and into a beautiful slice of nature. The cabins are inviting with warm, rustic simplicity and upgraded features like high-speed WiFi internet access.

Your Own Private National Park

To visit Corkins Lodge is to spend time in one of the most beautiful natural settings in the American West. Whether admiring the spectacular view of the Brazos Cliffs from your cabin porch or the edge of the fishing lake, hiking through the dramatic mountain landscape, or fishing on the 2-1/2 mile private stretch of the boulder-strewn Brazos River, there is no other place quite like it in the country. It is like staying at your own private national park.
