This place is a crowded campground. There are lots of trees and lush grass but is overrun with mosquitos. It was almost unbearable. The lake is fun especially if you have a paddle board or some kind of craft. The little bike trail around the...More

We stayed here last weekend and the campground was super clean, lots of shade, but a ton of bugs!! The temperature was SOOOOO hot, that we couldn't light a fire until late at night, but even the 100% deet didn't keep the bugs away.

A great little lake, but too many people. Go early, not afternoon because it is just too crowded. People are very nice there but skiing is out of the question at time if safety is important to you!

The park has several picnic tables that are in shaded locations. There is a nice swim area with a beach. You can also go fishing there.

Nice local campground. No sewage, electric, or water at campsites. A generator is a must but not allowed to use it after 10 PM The rangers are constantly watching for camp violations and are not afraid to speak their positions. Good lake swimming

A tiny little muddy pothole in the desert. It might be a nice place except they allow motors, so ski boats pretty much take over the lake. It takes about ten minutes to paddle from one end of the lake to the other. No reason...More

We've stayed at Highline Lake State Park Campground twice, both times to take advantage of the nearby mountain biking at 18 Road, Mary's Loop, Kokopelli Trail, etc. It's a drive from Highline Lake to get to those places (10-15 miles), but it was worth it...More

I'm not sure exactly what you are after but there is a big grassy day-use area with lots of tables and room to play. It's close to the beach area.
