Welcome to the Vega State Park Department!
At an elevation of 8,000 feet, Vega State Park’s high-mountain lake sits in a beautiful montane meadow on the northeast edge of Grand Mesa National Forest in Western Colorado.
Vega is great year round for birding, hiking among the changing aspen, fishing and cross-country skiing. Snowmobilers and off-highway vehicle riders can access hundreds of miles of trails in Grand Mesa National Forest from Vega Early Settlers campground, cabins or OHV lot.
The park’s 109 campsites in four campgrounds surround the lake. The campsites range from pull-through sites with electric hookups to 10 walk-in tent sites in the Pioneer Campground. All the sites have fire pits, picnic tables and pleasant views. Vega’s five cozy cabins are available year round and accommodate up to six people. Escape the crowds and come to Vega mid-week.
Summer reservations for the Meadows Group Picnic Area are picking up, so call today to reserve this beautiful location for a wedding, family reunion, company picnic, memorial or other group events.
