small-sr Icon

Located deep into the Grand Mesa National Forest, Trail 257 is your access to photogenic camping in Colorado. Grand Mesa covers over 500 square miles and is the largest flat-top mesa in the world. Being so flat, water builds up in hundreds of small lakes and ponds. Most of these are accessible in a stock 4x4, and they all have great fishing. Campsites are tucked into the trees, right along the shore of your own private lake. Searching the side trails makes sure you'll find that perfect spot. Being accessible in 2WD, it can be busy on weekends; plan accordingly.
