Standard KOA, a bit pricey but has a lot of amenities. We planned to stay at La Mesa RV but had to wait one night for them to have an opening. The park is well landscaped with quite a few trees. The sites are level. Has a pool. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Cortez area, it is loaded with National Parks and Monuments. Mesa Verde of course. You can actually see the mesa from the CG, look east that flat top mountain is it. Make reservations for tours online and early if you plan to do anything except the main tours. They were booked up for over a week when we got there and didn't know that.

If you had an option for 8.5, that's what we would have chosen. KOA's sites are all a little closer together than we like. It's a business, not a state or even a county park. Space is at a premium. Having said that, I asked in the reservation request for a space with a tree and privacy and that's exactly what they gave us. The host was extremely nice when we came in, he was ready for us and told us about the 3 acre dog park as I had indicated that we had pets (we actually have 2 labs). I consider that dog park a huge plus for us - Huge. If we can get these dogs tired, they are less likely to wake us up at 6 am. There is a nice gift store with a small grocery and essentials and we have full hook ups and they have a great laundry room and pool table and community room, big screen TV. All are immaculate. We also have a great view from site #20. I think when evaluating KOA campgrounds, one must remember that this venture is a money making business and one cannot really compare it to government run parks. There is a time and place for both. I would definitely stay here again. Kudos to the park for the care obviously given. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice KOA. The place is well maintained and immaculate. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great views of the mountains. Very good WiFi. Small store for basic needs. All gravel but maintained and in very good condition. Very little dust for a gravel and a small ways off the main highway made it pretty quite. A public 3 acre dog park is easy walk with dedicated path from the RV park. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Clean, exceptionally well-run campground that sits on hilltop facing Mesa Verde. Excellent Verizon 4G signal, very good campground wifi, very good utility connections. Super friendly staff. Weekends are very busy, quieter during the week. Liked the nature trail that runs around Denny Lake Park adjacent to campground. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a great park to stay in. Despite our late arrival one of the representatives escorted us to our site. He then assisted me with parking and made sure that I situated my camper for the best view from the site. He then pointed out several different points of interest visible in the distance. The site and roads were in good repair and level. Bathrooms were clean and showers were good. The store had everything we could need. They don't sell propane on site but directed me just down the road to a gas station that did. A great stay in Mesa Verde country. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A well maintained park with a helpful and friendly staff. The gravel spaces aren't very well defined but there is lots of space to work with. Wildlife abounds with deer visits and a bird covered small lake within easy walking distance. There is a large pet area and other good areas to walk a dog. A good base for visiting Mesa Verde NP. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

Owners/staff very friendly and attentive. Facilities seem to be well taken care of. Would like better Wi-Fi access in outer sites. Entrance/exit roads in park a little confusing. However, we enjoyed this park more than many other KOAs we have stayed at. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate reflect KOA membership and applying accumulated KOA reward points for further discount. Primarily a gravel park (after all it is a desert). Level site; water pressure, electric, sewage- excellent; staff professorial and courteous; escorted us to site; took time to explain to us about the "sleeping Indian." Great location to visit Mesa Verde National Park. We stayed 5 nights. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a typical KOA with good service, courteous staff, and large sites. The sites were gravel and fairly level. Although the sites had head to head hookups, they had plenty of room between rigs. The laundry room was large and clean and all the machines worked. It also had a large meeting room for groups. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

The campground had very nice people at the front desk. It was mostly a large gravel lot with site very close to each other. I really prefer sites with grass. It was a well maintained facility. It was close to a city dog park and a city park. It was also a nice location for visiting Mesa Verde. There was also deer near the grounds. It was quite full and there were not enough showers or laundry facilities for the number of guests. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

We camped here in the beginning of July with the temperatures being very warm during the day and perfectly cool at night. The staff was friendly and helpful checking us in quickly. We were lead to our site which was gravel, large and level with easy access to all the hook ups. We had a wonderful view of Mesa Verde where waking up early and seeing the sun strike the cliffs alone made the stay worth it. We had plenty of room to set up a 12 x 12 domed canopy for cooking and eating in comfort. The bathrooms were clean though the shower curtains are a little high leaving one with the feeling of being exposed. We would go back. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

I highly recommend this park. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The park is very well maintained and the views of the mountains are great. It is 6 miles to Mesa Verde entrance. The only negative is no grass at the sites. All gravel. There is a terrific TexMex restaurant close by. Very nice pool and bark park. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest KOAs around. The owner checked us in, remembered our names. Day room, vending, showers and wash rooms were exceptionally clean and nice. Shady, good sleeping. Definitely on our re-visit list. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Tent.

Located east of town and far enough off of the highway to be really quiet, this is an OK spot to use as a base for the area. The sites are all gravel, not particularly level, but still useable. Lots of off-the-air TV channels. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.
