A good base camp and very convenient for the multiple sights in the surrounding area. Staff was very helpful in briefing us on what there was to do in the area as well as recommendations on places to eat and routs to take.

Didn't use the showers or bathrooms but we did use the washer and dryer and both were very clean.

Site was shaded and level, power was consistent and water pressure and quality was very good. Best of all, the WiFi was as good as promised. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An excellent park. The lady at the desk made it easy to register and asked about our trip. The WiFi is very fast. Did not try cable TV. Rest rooms and showers very clean. Have wide and long pull-throughs. We have a 35 foot trailer and crew cab pickup and no unhooking was necessary.

A great place to stay. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great little no frills park. I hate to give such a good review, because I'm afraid it will be full next time we try to stop here. We stayed here in May on our way out to the west coast and after that stay, there is no other place we would rather stay in this area including Durango.

No pool, but who cares. Great cable TV and one of the best WiFi services I've experienced. Nice wide, level spots on a good gravel base. Pretty quiet and well maintained.

The owner, Shiree, knows all about the local area and can give plenty of information. Only dig I can give here is that the entrance is a little hard to see between the gas station and the traffic light.

WILL stay here again when in this area! I got a veteran (I'm not active duty or retired) discount and I appreciate the recognition.

Nice park, not big but big enough. Everything worked as it should. Clean shady sites. Gravel. Narrow grass median after you pass the office doubles as a dog walk area. Sites a bit close together but for a night or a few nights just fine. Would be a good location for trips into Mesa Verde. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a "base camp" park. Site was level, utilities worked although the sewer was to the front which was not compatible with our trailer. Wifi is excellent. We do not use TV. The entrance is a tad uncomfortable as it is squeezed between a gas station and a right turn lane from a side road. Be aware! It was very quiet considering the in-town location. Convenient to all shopping necessities. Restrooms could use updating but were clean. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, Canyon of the Ancients, Anasazi Heritage Museum (A+), Ute Mountain Tribal Park ($$ tour but worthwhile) are all reasonable close. Longer trips to four corners and Monument Valley. Nice Mountain drive north from Delores. Mancos is interesting. Easy to fill a week.

Very good wifi. Back in sites are very close together. There was a picnic table but it was dirty and very close to neighbor. Pull through sites appeared to have more space. People park close to the road which makes it difficult to leave. Entrance to park is narrow. If there is a rig checking in, you have to sit and wait until they are done. Approximately the first 10 back in sites back up to a loud car wash. Thankfully we had our air conditioner on which blocked some of the noise. It is walking distance to some businesses. Would not stay here again. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

You can get Mesa Verde Cliff Dwelling tickets at the Cortez visitor center however, they don't open until 9 am. The park visitor center opens at 7 am. There was a line when we got there at 7:30.

Good ice cream at Moose and More - on Main Street.

Pleasantly surprised. It is a sliver of land just south of the Maverick gas station on the west side of Main St. Close to Walmart, 80 CATV channels, easy in and out for pull thrus. The manager clued us in to some worthy things to do. I can't say enough good things about this CG. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The owner of the park gave us tons of information about the local area, making our stay here so much better than it would have been. The bathrooms were spotless and well-maintained. The Internet was not the best, but we were here for the value of the campground and to see the area. We had the Passport America discount for the first night and stayed two additional nights. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Although this park does not have a pool, hall, etc.. We loved this park. We intended to stay in the area only 3 days. Then we spoke with the owner, and she gave us so many great tips we stayed for 10 days. The nightly rate is only for the first night. We were there 10 days. Passport America rate is only for the first night. We did get a weekly rate.

It is right off the main road in town and close to Mesa Verde NP, the Four Corners, Monument Valley, and a ton of other sites. We went to a rodeo And the Cortez Cultural Center had a great American Indian dance program. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

We went to see Mesa Verde but were guided by the park host to begin at the Anasazi Heritage Center first. Great advice as that widened our view of the entire area and made our Mesa Verde tour far more in depth. The park is quiet, polite, close to most everything. Will call and reserve on the next trip to SW Colorado. Cash or check only operation. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great little park. There are no fancy amenities like a pool or meeting room, but those are things we rarely use anyway. The spaces are quite large, with ample parking for our large rig and the pick-up. Because the park is small, it's also very quiet. The owner was very friendly and very helpful with information. The only negatives were the difficulty getting into the park from the highway (we had to make a u-turn and come back to it - not so easy when pulling a 35 foot fifth wheel) and a one washer laundromat. There are several laundromats nearby but it is so much more convenient to be able to do it on site. Nice little park. We would stay here again without reservation. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is 9 miles from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park. The highway to the Anasazi Heritage Center is immediately adjacent to the park. Grocery stores, restaurants, laundromat and Walmart are all nearby. Very convenient location on the outskirts of Cortez.

Bare bones park right in Cortez. Small and quiet. It is also close to Mesa Verde. The WiFi worked great. The sites were fairly close together, but not uncomfortably so. We would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We planned to stay for a week, but we were unable to get a reliable dish signal signal. We were told we could get it if the dish was movable, but we would have had to put in almost in the road to possible get a signal. We had a back-in site which was difficult to get into because of vehicles parked on the road and in front of neighboring sites. Staff very nice, office had great tourist info. Wifi strong. Good Verizon signal. Most of the sites are long-term people working in the area. That was not a problem. Just the lack of good TV signal. Cable worked fine, but we like our Dish TV. Less than half the sites are pull-through. Site was so narrow, we had to move the table to open our slide and we could hardly walk around the RV on either site. Rate is the daily rate. Weekly rate would have been $29 a night. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient, small little RV park in center of city. Seasonal and permanent residents so few sites available. Small, back-in sites, close to neighbors. Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Mesa Verde National Park-just 9 miles from entrance. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.
