Each of our accommodations envelope you with gorgeous views of Blue Mesa Reservoir and the surrounding Rocky Mountains of Gunnison, Colorado. 10 of our RV sites are pull through and face the reservoir or mesa. They’re 25 feet wide, ranging in length from 75 to 80 feet. Our four to six person, one bedroom cabins, and tent sites, each overlook the reservoir. We now offer propane fills and bottle exchanges on site for your convenience!

The reservoir boasts some of the best trout and salmon fishing in Colorado, and Blue Mesa Outpost is located just one mile from boat ramps. We’re at 940 Cove Road, Gunnison, Colorado 81230. That’s just 25 miles west of downtown Gunnison, and 35 miles east of Montrose. We’re off Highway 50, between mile markers 131 and 132.

RV Sites

All of our RV sites are full hook up. Sites 2-9 are pull thru, buddy sites with dividers in the common space. They pull thru in opposing directions, with odd numbered sites facing the view of the reservoir (great for motorhomes & other large front windows!) and even numbered sites facing away from the view of the reservoir (great if you have a large back window!). Each site has its own fire ring and picnic table.
