An ideal base camp for exploring the Grand Junction area, Highline Lake State Park is the center for water sports in the Grand Valley of western Colorado. The park features shaded, grassy areas and maintained turf. There are two beautiful lakes at the park; Highline Lake is designated for water-skiers and boaters, and Mack Mesa Lake is designated for wakeless boating only. Both lakes offer great fishing. A watchable wildlife migratory waterfowl overlook provides an excellent spot from which to watch the park's wildlife, and the overview also provides an excellent view of the surrounding area. 25 miles west of Grand Junction and not far from the Utah border, this city-like park in a rural setting is close to the Kokopelli Trail and Ruby Canyon. In July, the Desert Sun Triathlon, a qualifier for the Iron Man competition, is held in the park.
