We needed a place to overnight while passing through the area. We came in late, had to call the owner on the phone and wait for them to arrive in a bout 15 minutes. Very helpful once they were there in getting us settled in. The went above and beyond to make sure we had a water source for the night and took some extra time to set up for the expected overnight freezing temps to insure there would be no problems. Would definitely stop in again if in the area. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy Access to the RV Park. Some sites are back-in, others are drive through. All have plenty of space, gravel surface, easy to reach utilities (including CTV). Payment is cash or check. Plenty of trees, lots of falling leaves. Owners are very knowledgeable of the area, Hovenweep, Mesa Verde, Canyons of the Ancients, lots to see and do. Although the CG is on the main highway there is very little noise to deal with. Fuel and car wash next door. Sites are mostly pretty level. The park was remodeled about 4 years ago and all upgraded then. We enjoyed our stay here and would return when in the area. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The last walking tours of the cliff dwellings this season were 10-29. When in season there is a fee/reservation system to deal with but the tours are guided by knowledgeable NPS Rangers, either Balcony House or Cliff Castle. Must see Canyon of the Ancients, Yucca House, Anasazi Cultural Center. Enough to do to keep you busy for several days. Safeway and City Market, Walmart and lots of local merchants. Great place to eat is J-Fargo about 1.5 miles from the CG.

This is definitely our type of park; wide, clean, level sites with full hook-ups including cable TV and excellent wi-fi for a reasonable price. The staff was very helpful and cooperative when we had to keep extending our stay due to a couple of very sick dogs. The roads and sites are gravel but well-maintained. There was no room to park our tow vehicle in front of the camper but plenty of room beside it. It is right at the edge of town, only minutes away from many restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a great stay for day trips throughout Canyons of the Ancients and Hovenweep. The owner is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. The park wifi is good, restrooms and showers clean, full hookups on well spaced, level gravel sites. Close to shopping. With Passport America for one night and other offered specials we averaged out at $35 per night over 5 nights here. Excellent value, I thought. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I really liked this place. It has full hookups, with cable TV and good wifi. The manager, who may have been the owner, was a very helpful and friendly person. She frequently was out and about on the campground, making sure everything was in order. I enjoyed talking with her about the area and her experience managing the place. The place was peaceful and well maintained. I have no negative memories at all, only positive. She was also helpful in providing us information about places we might want to visit. It is a small park, on a fairly busy street, but I do not remember being bothered by the noise. This was my favorite RV park on our trip. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Located east of town, tight turn into the park but it is well marked with a sign. If you are going east (left turn)when you leave, it can be difficult to pull out due to traffic. Just take your time. Check in was fine, staff gave us good information about restaurants and places to visit. We had a level pull through, full hookups that were easy to access. The laundry consisted of one washer and one dryer but were clean. This is a basic park in a good location. Not many amenities but wifi worked well. Cable tv is available but you need a coupler which the office has available for $2 deposit. Some road noise, but not too bad. Would stay here again. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here 3 nights and found the park and hosts to be enjoyable. The lady at the front desk has information for most anything you need or want to see in the area. A fairly small park located on the east end of Cortez. The interior roads and sites are gravel for the most part. OTA tv is great and very good WiFi. Peeked in at the washer and dryer (one of each). Verizon service was good as well as the utilities. Several big trees so be careful as you drive into or out of your site. We had a pull through which was an adequate length. Fairly quiet at night, which is nice for a park located pretty much in town. The Passport rate made it very affordable and we would stay here again. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We paid $100.70 for a 3 night stay, 1 night with Passport America and 2 with Good Sam. We had a level, gravel pull thru site with 50 amp FHU's, cable and wi-fi. The cable was pretty much your basic lineup with a half way decent picture, not HD. This park made a nice base for visiting Mesa Verde NP. We camped at La Mesa RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
