ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON CAMPING CLOSE TO THE WESTER BORDER OF COLORADO SO YOU CAN EASLY GET TO UTAH, ARIZONA,MEW MEXICO?
Check the listings for Cortez, Mancos, and Dolores. They are all in southwest Colorado with Cortez being the closest to the Four Corners. (You will have about a 30-40 mi drive to get to the NM, UT, or AZ borders and it is about 10 mi to Mesa Verde NP.)
You did not mention what type of park you wanted--full hook ups, boondocking, manicured, rustic, pool, cable, wi-fi?--but there are all types of parks in this area. We stayed at Sundance in Cortez. It is right in the middle of the city so stores and other services are very convenient. We were very comfortable there. I agree with the reviews except the one rated 1. Sounds like that person was mad because of the street noise (we didn't hear any) and then slammed the whole park. We also found the office personnel to be very friendly and accommodating so I don't know what his problem was. We saw the KOA, but did not stay there. It looked nice. For more rustic "camping" I think Dolores would be your best bet.
Hope this helps.
