No matter the season, Highline Lake State Park is a diverse and welcome retreat. Connected to miles of trails and close to communities, the park makes an ideal base camp for exploring the Grand Junction area. Whether passing through on mountain bikes, or as an end destination, the park welcomes campers, anglers, families and groups.
Two lakes: two worlds. Highline Lake caters to action like jet and water-skiing, while Mack Mesa Lake is quieter, allowing only wakeless boating. Fishing is available on both lakes.
Birders have plenty to see here. The Audubon Society designated the park an important bird area; thousands migrate through the area every winter.
Camping is offered year-round at 31 grassy campsites accommodating tents or RVs. Campers can enjoy coin operated hot showers and laundry facilities at the camper services building. Water hydrants are dispersed around the campground and a dump station is available year-round. There are no electrical hook-ups.
Campers must have a camping permit and a parks pass, both of which are available at the park entrance. Please camp only in designated sites and display the camping permit in the markers at each campsite. The campground routinely reaches capacity during the summer; please reserve early.
Winter campers enjoy the mild climate and relatively little snow accumulation at the park. The campground makes a great base camp for nearby mountain activities.
