A nice park, on gravel. Nice pool area with community tables and BBQ. No individual firepits. Great location to explore Mesa Verde. Clean laundry room (some machines did not work well). Very clean and nice restrooms and showers. Wi fi/phone reception is spotty. We pulled in at night to find our spot occupied. It was difficult to find anyone to help as the office was closed, the phone did not answer. It was resolved the next morning -freeloaders. The park is very clean. Many sites have shade trees. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

Be sure to ask for a shaded spot in summer. Try to pull in at daylight as the site numbers are hard to find, and there is no attendant available.

Sites not huge but big enough for my 35' fifth wheel and truck. Sites were level with good WiFi. Used as four-night base to visit the 4 corners, worked well. Outstanding view of Mesa Verde and Sleeping Ute mountains from the site. I will stay here again. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an extremely well maintained RV park. The grounds were lovely and the entire park was well kept up. The pool was pleasant and very clean. The laundry room and TV lounge were in good shape.

Cortez is a nice town and this park is close to Mesa Verde. Very efficient staff. Our family enjoyed our stay at this park. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Travel Trailer.

First off, I fail to understand the surpise of sites being close, it is a commercial campground and there business is to make money. It is a typical KOA, The entire area is gravel and our site needed only a 3/4" board to level side to side. The area was clean and well kept. There is what looks like a city park with a trail around the lake/pond. It is a good ways back from the main road and I did not hear any trains in the night. We did not try the OTA tv stations so we cannot comment on that. We will be coming back. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The previous reviewer got it correct. This is a newish KOA being built on the old KOA business model. The sites are all crammed together is a fore and aft fashion where one unit is parked facing north and the unit next to it is parked facing south so both units utilities are grouped together. The water & electric are together with the sewer either in the front quarter or rear quarter of the site. All sites are gravel some have small trees most have no shade at all. There is NO cable tv and the pool doesn't open till June 1st. During our stay the WIFI was strong and reasonably fast BUT there were only about 8 other units in the entire park at the time. So it could very probably be very slow when the park is full. The management was friendly and helpful, but there is no justification for the site fees based on what you get. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

I stayed here because of the reviewer who stated that it was the best KOA they had ever stayed at. What they failed to say was they were on an upper ledge that did have a few trees. Our site is in a gravel parking lot with no trees and no grass nearby for the dogs to do their business on. I had to put out blocks as my self levelers would not accommodate the slope of our site. You would think for a large gravel parking lot there would be a lot of room between homes, but as I am writing this I am looking at our next door neighbors camper that appears to be about 7 feet away even though the back lot is almost empty and they could have spaced out the campers. The park is clean and the check in person was friendly. Wifi is good, no cable tv, pretty good OTA reception if you have a digital antenna. Our site is worth about $15 to $18, but not $37.95. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

Gravel sites, mostly flat, under trees, with adequate space. There is a community dog park - 3 fenced acres - within a short walking distance. Very pleasant. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the best KOA we have ever stayed in and the best RV park in Cortez. We had a large site with a great view of the mountains. The electric was strong as was the wifi most of the time. We also had good Verizon cell and data signals. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was the many smoky fires. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly and very helpful staff. Nice large level sites, unfortunately not many sites with full hookup. Really needs an investment to accomplish this. Restrooms and showers were clean and the amount of them just enough for the whole campground due to the many tent sites. The pool was clean and the house rule regarding minors swimming without supervision was well maintained.

Good Wi-Fi.

We had a lovely stay. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very well maintained campground, with helpful and friendly staff at check in. The road and sites are gravel, no grass at all. Our site was a long pull through with side to side hook ups which required some leveling, and we were very close to our neighbor. Big rig access was good. It was very quiet, not a lot of privacy, but there was space for our towed. The landscaping was very pretty and we had a picnic table at our site. There was a small pool. The campground had wonderful views of the surrounding mountains, however we never got to enjoy them, we were shoehorned into a small space on the campground facing a view of a tree, while the rest of the campground with the wonderful views remained fairly empty. It made no sense to us or the other campers who were there that night. Bathrooms were old but clean, and the laundry was well equipped, clean and open 24/7. There is a nature walk, a pet walk with doggie bags and a 3 acre dog park. WiFi was good. There is a large Safeway in Cortez as well as plenty of restaurants and sightseeing in the area. However, we would probably not stay here again, it's a typical KOA and very overpriced and there are better campgrounds in the area. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

Not very friendly when we checked in. They put us in back on a uneven site in open area. Asked if we could get one in wooded area and facing North. They claim they where are reserved but during our stay there where some open. Changed our stay from 7 days to 5. This was a big hassle. Place was clean and plenty of space for big rig but the manager at the office spoiled the visit. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground. Though pricey, it was worth every penny. Site was level and no issues with Wifi, or satellite TV. View was great. Campground, office, store and pool was immaculate. Grounds were very well maintained. Place had lots of personality and accommodated campers in RVs, TeePees, cabins. Some longer term folks on one side but very orderly and neat. Got firewood delivered to site and had a couple nice campfires overlooking the mesa and valley below. We don't like to spend that much on a campground usually but this was worth every penny. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a great KOA - very clean, very organized and updated. Gravel sites with nice trees, good hook-ups and it is QUIET!! It's on the side of Cortez closest to Mesa Verde, so only about 8 miles to the entrance. Had to level a bit, but that's everywhere in our experience.

There is a park and lake next door which is fun, but don't plan on catching your dinner outta there. The fish are so overfed that there's no way you'd catch anything (we tried). But it's pretty and quiet.

Campground has a nice pool and playground area, feels very safe and is beautiful. Overall, a very nice KOA.

My only complaint is the usual one with KOAs. Pricey!! Still makes me mad that they charge $5 per kid per day, which adds $10 on to our daily rate. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A well maintained KOA with a very friendly helpful staff. Parking in the all gravel pull through area is tight, with units back to back sharing a power post and water but it's a KOA. Adjacent city park with a 3 acre dog park and a small lake with a trail around it makes it great for people traveling with dogs. A good place as a base for exploring Mesa Verde NP, Hovenweep NM and others pueblo sites in the area as well as day trips to Durango. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 nights to explore the area. Park is laid out well, very clean, well maintained and can accommodate any size rig. Sites was long and level with all services working well. Good WiFi and cell service. Owners are very customer friendly and go out of their way to help their guest. The office and store are well stocked with goods and information. From the park you can see Mesa Verde NP and the San Juan Mountains. There is a walking trail around a small lake. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future. We highly recommend this park.
