Great place to stay, but you will be roughing it. Not to mention the last 6 or so miles of road is a really rough gravel road. You are just a short walk from cottonwood lake or a half mile hike to lilly lake. Great place to trout fish, hike, or bike. This campground is at about 10,000 feet, not a lot of people due to the elevation, no hookups, and the roads to get there. If you want peace and quiet this is for you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We had a very nice lakeside spot with covered picnic table. Fishing was great. Easy access to Grand Mesa. However, the bathrooms were run down and nasty. Showers were disgusting. They were pay showers that liked to take your money. Camp hosts were grumpy. You would think a place without full hook-ups would try to keep the bathrooms in good repair. We were saddened because Colorado State Parks are usually our favorites to stay in. Bring your bird feeders. There are millions of hummingbirds here. We camped here in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful place, it ranks in my top 5 now! With lots of wildlife around, the lakes and the mountains, it is very picturesque. You can see the lake from most sites, as the CG sits up on a small rise above it. Another camper might obscure part of your view but it's still very nice. The fishing is very good here too. There's easy access to the water with a road that goes all the way around, and there are several boat ramps also. With no sewer we had to watch our black tank closely, but the bathrooms are nice if you need them. We saw some awesome sunrises over the lake, as well as plenty of wildlife, including bald eagles. Also, it's amazing how many hummingbirds there are here at this time of year. Bring your feeder and you'll enjoy the show! This park is pretty remote so hit the grocery store before you come, and stock up. It's 30 minutes just to Collbran because the roads are winding and hilly. But it is a really nice little town, though limited on selection. Nearby Grand Mesa is enough reason to come to Vega by itself. It's really beautiful all over the Mesa, with numerous lakes, streams, trails and other points of interest. Vega Lodge, opposite the CG, has a good little restaurant. We ate there several times and had good meals each time. And it overlooks the lake so you'll enjoy a stop there I'm sure. The only negatives are there are lots of chipmunks, some of whom like to explore the inside of your home, and there seems to be a lot of fast drivers going through the CG. Could the rangers do something about the latter? I don't know. We were at the bottom of a hill so maybe folks were just letting it "get away" from them a little bit. But watch your kids and pets. Otherwise I'd say it was a perfect trip for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a large, nice state park at 8,000' elevation. It has nice scenery and a large lake. We stayed is Aspen Grove campground which doesn't have hookups. Aspen sites 209-227 aren't good for an RV over 35'. There are too many untrimmed trees and bushes at the edge of the driveways and at the corners and the road is narrow for turns into the sites. Aspen sites #201-208 are very open, with shelters, and are good for 40' RVs. Early Settler campground has water and electric hookups and the sites are good for a 40' RV. They have a higher fee. They are very open. There is no cell service here. The bathrooms, including the vault toilets were clean. There is a dump station. You cannot ride your OHV in the park but there is a staging area by the Visitor Center for parking and easy access to the Grand Mesa National Forest. We camped here in a Motorhome.
