  • What a lovely scenic drive! Blue Mesa Reservoir is great for boating and fishing. Several campgrounds along the shore. No trees, no shade. No electric, but most have water. 
  • We arrived at closing which precluded the normal visiting but the Ranger went out of his way to recommend local restaurants and a place for coffee in the morning. 
  • Stunning beauty with lots of options of things to do from hiking to fishing or boating OR just taking time to admire the beauty! Place to visit more than once!! But DO at least visit once!!
