Recently took our camper up to Grand Mesa to camp at Island Lake Campground. This was our first time driving up to Grand Mesa in the summer time (been there once in the winter for snowmobiling - amazing place for riding!). Grand Mesa really is beautiful place! Very easy to get to as the main road is paved. So many... More

We went there by car. An interesting drive through the countryside. The Lands End observation point had spectacular views towards Grand Junction. The chipmunks were a delight, so remember to take food for them! The Raber Cow Camp cabins were interesting though you were unable to enter, only looked through the window. Well worth a visit!

Initially we weren't going to fit this in the trip, but we changed our minds. This was a gorgeous trip. It did take us a good 4-5 hours as we stopped at many of the sites and took pictures along the way. We also made sure to take the trek to the "lands end" area. I'm so glad we did!... More

The ride up to the Grand Mesa was very cool heading south. Make sure to drive to Land's End and Observation Point. Don't let the gravel road stop you. It's very smooth and eventually turns to a paved road. The view is fantastic and one can see for miles, including the whole Grand Junction valley.

The Grand Mesa has so many fishing holes and lakes, I am not sure you could fish them all. There are trails for biking, hiking, skiing of both kinds, also for boards. Places to park, restrooms provided, sitting areas, resultants, and cabins to rent, I believe there are even places to ride bosses and motorcycles, This is a great place... More

What an amazing place, definitely worth a detour even if it's not directly on your way. I would also recommend to go to "Land's End Observatory". Be advised that it is a gravel road to get there but it's well worth the about 20 minute trip

Beautiful. Amazing views. Unusual high mesa with lakes. Bring your mosquito repellant. Great route back to Grand Junction through switchback dirt road at lands end.
