Blue Mesa Recreational Ranch

A classy resort in a classic western setting, Blue Mesa Ranch is a mountain hideaway perfect for stealing away and sharing tales of the day’s best catches. Besides fishing, the resort offers such recreational opportunities as hunting and boating, and it resides in an expansive outdoor playground for 4-wheeling, horseback riding, and hiking.

Set in a valley surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, Blue Mesa Ranch sits at an elevation of 7,500 ft. The resort is just a “stone’s throw” from the waters of Blue Mesa Reservoir, a 26-mile long lake with 96 miles of shoreline. Breathtaking scenic drives in this area reveal such wonders as volcanic landscapes and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River. For its width, the dramatic 55-mile long canyon is the deepest abyss in the world – well over a mile to the churning river below.


2 Clubhouses, Indoor and Outdoor Swimming Pool, Horseback Riding, Miniature Golf, Horseshoes, Laundry, Hiking, Fishing, Water Sports.

Open and close dates for swimming pool and other amenities are weather and usage dependent.
