Sumner Lake State Park, Fort Sumner, New Mexico

Fort Sumner, New Mexico - December 22, 2018 - We loved this state park! Peace and quiet, lots of wildlife and great Internet! It's a great place for digital nomads like us to be productive. It's also has an excellent lake front area for Penny to run around on. We've  thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend this park.
