Grand Junction, CO is approximately 10 miles west of Palisade, with Fruita another 10 miles west of Grand Junction. Our area offers many vacation activies such as white water (whitewater) rafting, fishing, biking, golf and much, much more!

The Grand Valley lies near the Colorado/Utah border, about midway between Salt Lake City and Denver.  The climate and surrounding terrain is that of an arid high desert, with moderate seasonal temperatures, but the Grand Valley itself is truly an oasis in the desert.
