Co River - Island Acres Campground
Island Acres, the eastern anchor of Colorado River State Park, located just east of Palisade provides a choice of full hook-up, electric hook-up or tent camping. Coin showers and laundry are also available spring through fall. Colorado River State Park is actually five diverse sections along the Colorado River as it flows through the Grand Junction area. Reservations are available for the nights of March 1 through October 31. Camping is also available at the Fruita Section 30 miles to the west.Nestled along the Colorado River in Debeque Canyon, Island Acres offers opportunities for walking, biking, fishing and swimming. The surrounding canyon walls offer a spectacular backdrop and maybe even a glimpse of wild horses or Big Horn Sheep. There are three fishing lakes, two of which are stocked. A fourth lake, designated as the Swimmin' Hole, is surrounded by a sandy beach. Area attractions include the Grand Mesa, Colorado National Monument, museums, wineries and orchards.
