​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​An oasis in the desert, Highline Lake is the recreation epicenter for the Grand Valley with two lakes, lush grass, trails and trees.

No matter the season, Highline Lake State Park is a diverse and welcome retreat. Connected to miles of trails and close to communities, the park makes an ideal base camp for exploring the Grand Junction area. Whether passing through on mountain bikes, or as an end destination, the park welcomes campers, anglers, families and groups.

Birders have plenty to see here. The Audubon Society designated the park an important bird area; thousands migrate through the area every winter.

The bass are biting!  A fisherman hooked a 5 lb. bass near the dam at Highline last week.  The trout fishing at Mack Mesa has slowed a little this week.
