Lakeside Camping, Water Time :)

7 sites · RVs, Tents22 acres · Clifton, CO
We moved here in 1997 The home has had major remodels done on it. The lake is an old gravel pit to make road base for local road construction. The buoys in the lake are scuba projects from the local college CMU, and hold lots of fish. Other nesting platforms are for our local Geese and they hatch out in April-June. We airbnb 2 rooms in our home as a shared facility and have airbnbs in Northern Ca and Baja. Our home is off limits for campers as we need to respect the space for our other airbnb guests. But in an emergence please call, cell service works fine. port-a potty is gone for the winter November-April. port-a potty is clean and works great, May- Oct. If you are here in the winter you may use the trees or Mavericks gas station in 1.5 miles away.

Camping near Grand Junction guide

Overview

Experience the majesty of the American West in Grand Junction, a small city in western Colorado. Red rock buttes rise above the Colorado River, calling to hikers, bikers, and climbers. Nearby, millions of acres of public lands overflow with forest and mountain campsites. In town, RV parks with full hookups sit near vineyards and golf courses.

For classic red-rock camping, head to the Colorado National Monument. Wake up to valley views from your tent or RV site in the Saddlehorn Campground. Or, head into the wild on foot and create your own backcountry campsite.

Craving mountain views? Head to the 11 developed campgrounds in Grand Mesa National Forest. Solitude-seekers should make camp in the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area provides. In the Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area, fish right from your campsite on the Gunnison River.

From camp, it’s easy to access Grand Junction’s outdoor adventures year-round. Launch a kayak at Colorado River State Park near downtown. The fast, fun Ribbon trail is a must for mountain bikers. The local Red Rocks provide hiking trails for every ability.

During the spring snowmelt, join in a local tradition: waterfalling. Hike into No Thoroughfare and Big Dominguez canyons to spot waterfalls. Act fast, because they disappear quickly!
