This is a huge lake that spans the Colorado-New Mexico border, east of Farmington, NM (northwest corner of the state). Best camping is on the New Mexico end of the lake and you can launch near the marina. New Mexico requires wearing your life jacket; all kayaks or canoes.

The rocky coves and high cliffs make for interesting scenery, and there are enough miles available to burn a lot of calories!

The locations of the best campsites can be pried out of Marcel Bieg, head of the outdoor leadership program at San Juan Community College in nearby Farmington. State Parks by next year may have most of Francis Canyon fenced off from OHV and truck use which will open up this area to some fine overnight camping. Just be aware that this is oil and gas country and partially a national sacrifice area and don't take a campsite with a rig too close nearby. They start up sometimes at the worst hours...

Down below the dam is some of the finest trout fishing in the world. The San Juan River is well known for it's big trout.

I believe the Tampa Bay area could be in the list of best kayak/ fishing. It has a flourishing ecosystem, like mangrove habitats, freshwater springs that feed into the Gulf Of Mexico, barrier islands, passes and bridges, all of which are home to some of the best saltwater game fish in the world. Also Bird watching, photography, and relaxing are just a few activities for the non-angler.
