The autumn season brings cooler nights and fall color to Ocean Mesa. It's the perfect time to sip on something warm in front of a flickering campfire or roast some marshmallows and enjoy the spectacular show of stars overhead. Our beautiful location and friendly staff are ready to provide everything you need for a great vacation and beautiful memories for years to come.
We are pet friendly! We have 2 dog runs: one is fenced, the other is an open run. Dogs are to be on a leash at all times and never left unattended at their campsite. To protect wildlife, dogs are not allowed on the hiking trails.
