At an elevation of 8,000 feet, Vega State Park’s high-mountain lake sits in a beautiful montane meadow on the northeast edge of Grand Mesa National Forest in Western Colorado. Vega is great year round for birding, hiking among the changing aspen, fishing and cross-country skiing. Snowmobilers and off-highway vehicle riders can access hundreds of miles of trails in Grand M​esa National Forest from Vega Early Settlers campground, cabins or OHV lot. The park’s 109 campsites in four campgrounds surround​ the lake. The campsites range from pull-through sites with electric hookups to 10 walk-in tent sites in the Pioneer Campground. All the sites have fire pits, picnic tables and pleasant views. Vega’s five cozy cabins are available year round and accommodate up to six people. Escape the crowds and come to Vega mid-week. Summer reservations for the Meadows Group Picnic Area are picking up, so call today to reserve this beautiful location for a wedding, family reunion, company picnic, memorial or other group events. Shopping is always fun at Vega State Park. Find those unique gifts, books and comfortable clothing at the Visitor's Center gift shop.

Spent the weekend with my best friend in one of the five rental cabins. This is probably the easiest "roughin' it" camping you could do. No kitchen or bathroom but running water available nearly at the front door and an outhouse conveniently located. Inside they...More

Not close to any main highway or larger towns so bring any supplies you need. The drive from Grand Junction takes you through part of the Grand Mesa scenic byway. Agree with past posters that it is a small park for mostly camping, fishing and...More

Drove around the lake today. It was peaceful and icy. The snow melting quickly but a few snowmobiles were out. It was a very nice visit.

The kids camped here and had fun. From the perfect spot, canoe rental, and fishing was all a good time. The view was gorgeous. It's a nice lake to visit.
