Only once

Lots of mosquitoes. Yikes. Dusty roads. Lakes barley exist. All of the other places in Colorado we visited were better.

Nice trails, beautiful views
Jun 2021
If you're beginning in Grand Junction, do not take the Route 65-50 loop all the way around. Once U.S. Forest Service land ends on Route 65, turn around and enjoy the views traveling northbound back to Grand Junction.

This is a great U.S. Forest Service Area with beautiful views. You have easy access to flat trails and nice lakes. Bring your mosquito spray though!!!

Beautiful in Winter - Just Not as Fun a Drive
May 2021
We did a quick trip to the Grand Mesa years ago and vowed to come back and spend more time. This trip, we planned to amble our way across the Mesa. Well, we did, kind of.

The road is wonderful beginning with the Plateau Creek Canyon. The road winds here through some amazing sandstone cliffs. Then it's up and up and . . . The road climbs to the edge of the Mesa sometimes with really long and steep drop offs. The day was cloudy and snowy, so we didn't get many views. At the top, it was snow packed. Had hoped to go to Lookout Point. Nope. Gate closed and the road impassible. Planned on visiting the Visitor Center. Nope again. Didn't open until Memorial Day.

Sooooo, was it worth it? Yep. Even in the winter when you can't even see the valley below it's a beautiful drive and a neat experience. But go in mid-June or later when the snow has melted.

Thunder Mountain Lodge
Jan 2021 • Couples
My husband created a birthday event for me at Thunder Mountain Lodge. We stayed in one of their pleasant cabins; complete with kitchen, bath and comfy beds. We took their 3 hour guided snowmobile tour and were impressed with the scope and variety of trails and scenery that we experienced! A wonderful experience! Would highly recommend it!

Interesting geologic formations.
Jul 2020
The park staff were friendly and helpful. There are numerous pullouts to view the formations and we were able to see wildlife including mountain goats.

What a relaxing getaway!
Aug 2020
This had to be one of the most relaxing places to spend a weekend of camping under the stars! The elevation provided a wonderful escape from the heat of the lower elevations, and the stars are so much brighter. Make sure to research and plan ahead before going, especially if camping out, as the temperatures can get quite cool, even in the height of summer. The natural beauty is breathtaking.

Fish for a day
Aug 2020
Lots of fish stocked in the lakes. Beautiful atmosphere and plenty of room for safe distancing. A great choice for getting out of town without risk.
