BUT BE SAFE, wear a PFD unless you are a great swimmer. Bugs do come out at dusk for a few hours, but Terra shield works to keep them away. Fires are allowed with little or no wind ONLY. Put all fires out when you are done- no smoke remaining, with buckets of water from the lake.  8 disc Golf baskets in the area. Enjoy and be safe.

Spot #1 Has a grass beach for water toys. This is the biggest spot and 2 RVs would be comfortable here, near each other, works for 2 RVs traveling together. Lots of parking room, easy turn arounds and drive through.

Spot #2 is perfect for a big unit, with easy pull-in, and U-turns out. Nearest to Gazebo.  Both sites 1-2 face north for great stars, and a reflection of Mt Garfield on the lake. They also Face East for an unobstructed view of all of the Grand Mesa.

Spot # 3 Has a view to the West with the sunsets. This is a large spot for any size RV. Pull straight in and easy Uturn out, all sites are right on the lake, with picnic tables, fire ring, and wood.

Spot #4  This is a little more private with high grass growing around the site, It faces west for sunsets.

All spots are equally great for tents as well and prices are the same.  Fire wood is always free

This spot is so amazing and Mike is a really great host. I came in after dark and Mike came by to great me and let me know that there was plenty of wood for a fire. Also told me about some amazing hikes in the area. When I woke up I was greeted by the most amazing view of the lake and mesa. Then the goose, swan, pups all came by for a morning check-in. I can't wait to stay here again!!!

Host kept me informed and provided ample firewood. I had RV site 4, which accommodated my 30 ft trailer just fine. Surface is gravel, which was nice when it rained. Site has picnic table and nice firepit. Site 3 is close by, so you may want to consider reserving it also, if you don't want to be close neighbors. Lake is nice for SUP and swimming. There is a porta potty a short walk away. I would come here again.

Beautiful spot and easy to find. Very quite area and lots of room to maneuver. Our host stopped by to introduce himself, and offered some great suggestions for things to do in the area. We will definitely stay here again.

What a happy surprise to arrive at Mike’s cozy little camping oasis after a long day of traveling! We arrived well after dark, but with the well written detailed instructions, we were able to locate our campsite next to the lake. We were welcomed by a pretty light on the picnic table. It stayed on all night till it automatically shut off at sunrise, which was beautiful! The camp was super clean, they allow you to have a campfire (even providing free firewood) and there is a red bucket for you to keep full of water (the lake is handy for that) to use to put out the fire. There are even canoes and SUPs to use for free on their darling little lake. The price was right and we felt totally safe and tucked in there. I would highly recommend this place and would not hesitate to return!

Our first Hipcamp experience and glad we stayed on Mike’s property. Beautiful scenery, plenty of space on level ground ( we camp in a little trailer), quiet/ peaceful, and nicely situated very close to Palisade. Mike greeted us and was friendly and welcoming. We didn’t play in the lake, but perhaps another time. Good cell and WiFi here as well.

It was an awesome weekend camp for me and my family. We really enjoyed the lake with our camp fire pit and picnic table. The weather was just hot enough to enjoy the lake. My son wanted his 16th birthday at this lake. So we had about 10 teenage boys in and out of the water from 7 in the morning till evening. We enjoyed using the canoe's and other water toys. We love how it was a private camp area with a lake. We also enjoyed the company of our fellow campers that met that weekend. It has a very casual, comfortable, family feeling because private land i think. Mike really took care of us. And last but not least, the potty was clean.
