Welcome to Blue Mesa Escape! We are excited to host you from Mid-April through Mid-October, weather permitting. Here are a few of our policies to ensure you, our honored guest, have a safe and relaxing stay!
Check-in after 3:00PM and check-out before 11:00AM. Office is open 8:00AM-8:00PM. Please ask in advance if you need additional time; we will accommodate you if we can, but there may be an additional fee. Quiet time is 10:00PM-8:00AM. Please enjoy the open areas around the cabins and the RV sites. The road above the game room marks the start of private property, and the storage area is off limits unless you are parking there; please honor these boundaries. The Speed limit within the Park is 10MPH. No riding of ATV’s or similar vehicles is allowed due to speed and noise restrictions. The safety of our guests walking throughout the Park is of the utmost importance. Our grass and trees are precious as we are in the high desert and have minimum rainfalls. Please help us by not climbing or tying anything to the trees. Climb on the rocks at your own risk. Water is precious here; please help us by NOT washing and/or rinsing your vehicles, or allowing your children to play with the hoses.
BBQ Grills: Grills are by each cabin. Please bring your own charcoal and lighter fluid. If you forget, there is a small store nearby, or we might have leftovers at the office we will be glad to share.
Children: We have no age restrictions, and welcome guests of all ages! Please do not let your children wander the campground by themselves. This is for their safety, as well as the safety and enjoyment of our other campers. Children under 12 should not be out by themselves, or allowed to play in the game room or on the swing set without supervision. You alone are responsible for your children and any damages they may inadvertently cause to Blue Mesa Escape’s or other campers’ property. If we find unattended children we will return them to your care, after we give them coffee and candy! Please remember everyone here is on vacation, and we want all campers to enjoy their stay.
Entertainment: There are TV’s with DVD and VHS players in each cabin. We have a selection in the office to borrow, or bring your favorite ones from home. We do have internet, but it is slow and annoying; do not count on it to keep you occupied. You will not be able to stream movies or music. If you do, the system will shut down. Please don’t be a data hog! Get your favorite beverage and sit on the porch and enjoy the views, or make new friends around the campfire. We are all about relaxing at Blue Mesa Escape. The Game Room is normally open from 8:00AM-10:00PM, but if you aren’t rowdy, we won’t kick you out. We just ask that you please turn out the lights and shut the door when you leave. We have a selection of board games to borrow, a poker table, pool table, and several old fashioned video games. We have a small library where we encourage you to leave a book, take a book. For outdoor fun we have a small playground, basketball goal, and horseshoe pit.
