Manzano Mountains State Park is a state park of New Mexico, United States, located 16 miles (26 km) north of Mountainair on the eastern slope of the Manzano Mountains.[2] The park is popular for fishing, bird-watching, hiking, and cross-country skiing.

The Manzano Mountains are a part of the same geological feature that formed the Sandia Mountains to the north, but the Manzano Mountains are more remote and less developed.
