“Cozy Campground with AMAZING views!!”

Reviewed May 24, 2017

Overall Rating

We have a fondness for cozy campgrounds. This is a little gem tucked away on a beautiful mesa with awesome lake and mountain views!

Price reflects the Passport America rate. Amazing water and mountains views + full hook-ups + PA rate = a REALLY good value!!

This small well-kept campground has 12 full hook-up sites. The sites are on grass, dirt, and some gravel, each with its own picnic table. Nearby there is a multi-purpose building with a clean restroom, shower and one washer and dryer. The owners were helpful and provided excellent customer service.

Blue Mesa Escape also has cabins, some that sleep four and others that sleep six. We decided to stay in one of the cabins and complete a project on our camper. The cabin was cute and very comfortable, featuring a living and dining area, a kitchen, a full bath and a separate bedroom. We had a great view of the water.

We picked this area for a weekend visit, because our research showed a lack of both cell service and Wi-Fi. This is not a reflection on this RV Park, it is an area wide situation. If you need good cell reception and/or strong WiFi to work, this park and this area would not be a good choice during the week, so save it for the weekend. Blue Mesa Escape's Wi-Fi was enough to be able to check email and social media from time to time.

As for celluar connectivity:
T-Mobile was non-existent
Verizon varied from 4 bars of Extended 1x to 3 bars of Extended 3G
AT&T was the most consistent and “fastest” with 5 bars of HPSA + and data speeds of .23 Mb up and down.
