Blue Mesa Escape welcomes you to its spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains and Blue Mesa Reservoir! Enjoy the welcoming atmosphere, cozy cabins, pull-through RV sites, and tenting area.
The Blue Mesa Reservoir is bordered on the north side by the West Elk Wilderness Area with more than 175,000 acres in the Gunnison National Forest, This area provides world-class hunting and fishing to say the least. Blue Mesa Reservoir Dam is located 30 miles west of Gunnison and 30 miles east of Montrose, Colorado on US highway 50 where it meets Co Hwy. 92 as it comes across the dam at the west end of the reservoir. Co Hwy. 92 travels east out of Delta through Hotchkis and Crawford, then along the scenic north rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and then across the Blue Mesa Reservoir Dam at the mouth of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Co Hwy. 149 marks the east end of the reservoir and then travels south through Powderhorn, Lake City and parts beyond.
Weekend reservations in June, July and August require a 2-night stay minimum.
Formerly known as Burnin' Daylight Ranch Resort, it's now under new ownership and has a new name.
