Nice small campground. About half the sites seem to be used by workers in the area but they were all quiet. The lady who runs this place wants cash, no plastic so be ready with the folding green when you get here. She told us to get cash and pay her in the next day or two when we didn't have that much cash on hand. Quite a few trees so most sites are shaded but otherwise just a parking lot. We camped at La Mesa RV Park 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.

Also nearby is the Canyon of the Ancients/Hovenweep. Monument Valley, Canyon of the Gods, Gooseneck SP, Natural Bridges, Moki Dugway are other sites to see.

Clean, basic park close to Mesa Grande. The sites are a good size and level, all on gravel. Ours was an easy drive through. It is close to local fast food restaurants and right next to a gas station, for a quick fill-up before you hit the road. The wifi and cable TV both worked well. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park near Mesa Verde NP. Main park road asphalt with good gravel sites. Electrical recently upgraded. Excellent water pressure. Very nice bath house with showers (closed in winter). Small laundry with 1 each washer/dryer. Wi-Fi OK but serviceable for most uses except perhaps for streaming video. CATV at all sites. All sites have a picnic table. No fire rings. Park is on the east part of town away from the traffic. It has a convenience store on the south, side wall of a shopping center on the west, and a large vacant lot on the north. Traffic noise minimal. Best space is #38 or the four all the way in back. The park's best asset is the owner. She is a virtual chamber of commerce. Need advice about the area? Just ask. I've stayed at this park for three consecutive summers 2012-2014. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

After a day spent at Mesa Verde we returned to our site and found a tent next to our MH and a couple of guys having a beer on our picnic table. Found it was not unusual for the campground to book a tent on the same site as an RV. Host was have then move by the time we returned the next day. Tent was still there so we left. Wasted a few hours and re-arranged our schedule. Would definitely not stay there again. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Basic campground. Pull thru sites. Friendly owner. Weekly rate cash only. WIFI OK. Tree shaded sites. About half the sites are long term workers but we had no problems with them. Good spot for four corner exploration. Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, Monument Valley, Goosenecks SP and so on. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is a decent value at the Passport America rate, though you will be assigned to the "Overflow" area, in our experience. Had a fiasco day: Upon arrival, told to wait or go sightsee til load of gravel could be brought and spread for this "site". Came back much later, not ready. Sent to a shaded site that was going to be given to TWO campers coming in later. (Most of the park is for residents.) It was 93 degrees, we hooked up electric, then were told about 6 PM to move to the overflow,which we discovered had no promised hookups...so pulled nose in, and stretched cords to neighbor's power box. Site was in full sun, though level. Manager was a nice lady but not juggling things well. There is a nicer park closer to town ,with large shade trees, and a WalMart as well. Won't be back here. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground was a wonderful surprise to us. The owner was very pleasant and helpful during registration and our entire 9-day stay. The owner/manager continues to upgrade and improve the park which includes wide spaces and parking for the extra vehicle we were towing behind our 40' 5th wheel. This is a very quiet campground right on the edge of town and close to the Four Corners, Mesa Verde and numerous other sites for the entire family to visit. We will stay again when in the area.

The owner wouldn't accept Passport America because she was busy and didn't need to discount 50%. This is a $20 a night campground with 50% long term workers/travelers. Electric and cable were good. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good location on the edge of Cortez, quiet and private. Wi-Fi and AT&T phone service was excellent and the staff went out of their way to help me since I had to stay a few months. I didn't give it a 5 star because they don't have a pool :) but the bathrooms and laundry were clean and the sites are pretty level. I will definitely stay here again if I return to Mesa Verde!

The rate is an average of PPA for one night, then Escapees for the second. The lady who checked us in was friendly and efficient. Both nights of our stay in Cortez saw temperatures drop below freezing – not unheard off, but unseasonably cold. I'd call this park “handy.” The Walmart is a couple of minutes down the street. There are many restaurants and other businesses quite nearby. There are lots of scenic and historical places nearby but the biggie is Mesa Verde National Park – the entrance is just nine miles to the east. We'd be glad to stay here again (and hope for warmer weather)! We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My rates - Passport America (2 nights only) $20 each - 3rd night Good Sam $34 - regular rate $38 (all tax incl.). Without the discounts it's a bit high for a bare bones park but good location for Mesa Verde and museums. Cable only at some sites and I got no discount for a non-cable site. WiFi worked well and hookups were fine. Directly next to a service station with bright lights but sites are level and host is pleasant. Will have some nice shade in the summer with leaves on the trees. And careful, don't miss the entrance - it's small. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at La Mesa from November 11th through the 19th of 2013 while visiting Mesa Verde and the Canyon of the Ancients. I stayed in the park back in 2006 as well. The park has upgraded power to all the sites (50 Amp everywhere) and has the best Wi-Fi I've seen in any park. Additionally the park owner redesigned the park making many large pull-through sites on one side of the park. They've really put a lot into the upgrades. The park owner / manager is extremely helpful and if you're looking for things to do in the area she has a list of suggestions. It's a small family run park, and family oriented (no loud neighbors, etc). We will visit again. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

All of the previous reviews speak the truth. The only thing I can add is that the promoted discounts (GS, AARP, etc) do not apply to the advertised weekly rate. A quiet, yet busy park, so make reservations. Rate based on weekly price of $191 and change. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

A small park, price is with Good Sams discount, includes an extra $1 for 50 amp...only cash or check no credit cards accepted, but that wasn't a problem...gravel sites but very spacious. The owner is lovely and is very, very helpful and friendly. Good Wi-Fi. Convenient for local shops and for Mesa Verde National Park. Would certainly recommend this campsite.
