This park has new owners within the past years so added some photos to reflect the updates and hard work the new owners have put into it.

Owners were fantastic and full of information that they happily provided.

Pros: Great views, plenty of room to maneuver my 33 foot trailer into spot 10 (nearly all spots are pull throughs, with some back-ins planned for the near future). The water is the best tasting I’ve had at any park and I later learned it’s because the owners treat it well). Also has a laundry room, free use shower and an incredible game room with tv, arcade, pool and family games galore.

Cons: Mainly just that we had no ATT signal but that’s because the park is in a national forest. However, free WiFi is provided and though it had ups and downs, it worked great for streaming.

There is also a steep and windy gravel hill to get into the place but if my half ton and 33 footer can make it, anyone can.

“Cozy Campground with AMAZING views!!”

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.
