Grand Junction, Colorado

Grand Junction is a hub in the western part of the beautiful state of Colorado. East of Grand Junction is Grand Mesa, at over 11,000 ft. elevation, which holds the record for the world's largest flat-topped mountain. Its area is 350,000 acres and much of this comprises the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest. There are many camping opportunities in the Grand Mesa area, including both RV parks and campgrounds with unserviced sites. Highway 65, also called the Grand Mesa National Scenic and Historic Byway, will take you there and, along the way, you will climb up to around 10,000 ft. There are at least 10 campgrounds or RV parks between Mesa and Cedaredge.

Southwest of Grand Junction is the spectacular Colorado National Monument with its red rock peaks and canyons. Here you can hike in the high desert, taking in the magnificent view. Or reserve a campsite in the midst of it all. It is definitely worth a stay as you explore the flora and fauna of this western landscape.

For a skiing holiday, try the Powderhorn Resort in Mesa. This is a small, family-oriented ski resort with easier runs suitable for children and within an hour's drive from Grand Junction. Some of the area RV parks are open year round.

Western Colorado Center for the Arts is a community center where you can take a class, view the permanent art collection, see rare and unique pieces, or see groups at work on projects, in an atmosphere dedicated to the enhancement of the visual arts.

The Cross Orchards Historic Site is an old fruit farm site. You will enjoy period-costumed guides, friendly animals, hands on displays, miniature train set-ups, on a section of the original farm of the Cross family. Museum of the West, a regional history museum also in Grand Junction, and Dinosaur Journey, in Fruita, are the other sections of the three-site Museum of Western Colorado. The RV parks around Grand Junction will provide accommodation while you explore the city. Nearby Fruita is another source of campgrounds, both full service and unserviced.

Colorado's Dinosaur Journey, one of the three parts of the Museum of Western Colorado, is . located in Fruita. Also known as the Dinosaur Discovery Museum, it is a surefire treat for kids, with interactive displays, robotic dinosaurs and actual bones. Along the same line, the John McConnell Math and Science Center is reputed to be a very captivating hands-on place to visit. It is unobtrusively housed in an old elementary school.

The huge and varied Canyon View Park has facilities for sports, such as baseball, soccer, roller skating and a handball court, plus a couple of ponds. There is also a dog park with sections for small, and medium to large dogs, with running space and access to swimming.

Redlands Mesa Golf Club is set in a canyon within a desert landscape, so the contrast of the greens and the surroundings is especially stunning. Some reviews rank it as a difficult course.

There are many wineries in the vicinity of Grand Junction and, if you happen to hit the right weekend in late September, you can attend the Colorado Mountain Winefest. The weather can be perfect with the combination of warm mellow days and crisp nights. A wine tour is a perfect activity if you don't mind driving from vineyard to vineyard sampling the best offerings. Food and chocolate are sometimes part of the experience. Book your tickets early and book your RV park site as this winefest is popular.
