Grand Mesa. There is a lot of wildlife in the area, so bring your camera!

From Island Acres on the east through Corn Lake, Wildlife Area, Connected Lakes and on down the river to Fruita, this remarkable park has redefined what parks are all about. The trail system winds through stands of tall trees and along the banks of this famous and magnificent western river. Visitors stop along the way to enjoy great fishing and picnics in delightful settings.

Interested in camping? Does being nestled along the Colorado River in the bottom of Debeque Canyon sound good? Then Island Acres, 5 miles east of Palisade, is for you. Do you want to take in the scenic lower Grand Valley with the Colorado National Monument as the backdrop? Then plan to stay at Fruita. Both campgrounds are a great place to relax or use as a base for a wide variety of area activities.

Island Acres and Fruita also offer a variety of day use activities including swimming, picnicking, trails, fishing and boating for hand propelled or electric powered craft. Group picnic facilities are available and may be reserved by contacting the park.

The locations described above are located along Interstate 70 in and around Grand Junction.
