“When you think hunting and fishing, think Corkin’s Lodge. Located 167 miles from Albuquerque and 104 miles north of Santa Fe. At the entrance to the famous Brazos Box, in one of the prettiest spots in New Mexico, surrounded by large Pine, Balsam, Spruce and Quaking Aspen. At an altitude of 7,900 feet, the noted Brazos River runs through the property and the fishing is always good. We are centrally located for all fishing in the Chama district, fishing in large or small streams can be had according to your taste, with twelve streams to pick from.” ~ From a 1929 postcard promoting Corkin’s Lodge
Owned and operated by Phil and Frances Corkin, the couple managed the nine-cabin hunting and fishing lodge that sits on 3,600 acres of land on the northern tip of New Mexico for over 60 years. Corkin’s Lodge: At the End of the Road is a tribute to Phil and Frances Corkin and the enduring legacy they’ve left for future generations. Their story is told through personal interviews and 86 archival photographs from the family collection, along with a visual record of what Corkin’s Lodge looks like today as seen by Tom Maday, who photographed the lodge over a 15-year period starting in 1998.
