Description: It is cooler than Grand Junction, with breezes and shade trees with a year round creek. Located on the side of Grand Mesa near small towns of Mesa and Molina. Grand Junction prices for gas and food are much cheaper than other areas around.

House Rules: Common courtesy and common sense covers 95% of it. If the fire danger is high, no open fires. There are black bears, elk, deer, moose, turkey, hawks, owls, cows, etc. and the creek so children, animals, and stupid people are at risk. There is an outhouse available (keep it clean). Take your garbage with you. Atleast one night, stay awake long enough to look up and see the incredible stars. Fall asleep listening to the creek.Remember we are 7500 feet and the Mesa 10,000, so you better quit smoking, start exercising, begin an iron supplement, etc. Hospital trips for Colorado visitors that incorrectly estimate their fitness and the altitude is common, so do some reading/research on preparation. Just the dryness of Colorado causes dehydration if you do not keep up with drinking fluids. 

Access Road Conditions: pull thru parking is on one site only, but larger RVs will find the pull in (and backup) site easier than the circular drive thru site. After you pull into the gate, stop and walk around to see what is best for you. You will be climbing to 7500 feet on public paved roads, until the last 2 miles when it becomes gravel, then 1/4 mile on a gravel private road. I installed double 10 feet, gray gates, so there has been no problem turning into the RV site so far.  "Site #1"  is large....  So it will accommodate friends and family traveling together with more than 1 motorhome, travel trailer or tent.  (Site #2 - further up the road on map, is under construction and will also be creek frontage with 1 camping site). 

There is NO cell service here. By the entrance to the private rd, weak cell service, down by KE rd there is good signal. Take notes or do screen save of the detailed directions by map/gps.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details: the RV (site#1 ) is one acre, so parking is not an issue.

We highly recommend this campsite. The property owners are extremely friendly. We loved the privacy of the area and our dogs loved running around the open space and playing in the water. Would definitely return.

Super cute little place off the beaten path. Gorgeous mountain views right up the road. Owners are very friendly and checked up on us when we arrived. They also offered to let us stay an extra night for free, which was great!
