17 Parks near Mancos, Colorado
Jul 2016 - $36.00
Super clean park in good location. Lower level sites (closer to entrance) have beautiful trees; many big rigs in rear are in an area with full hookups but no trees or shade. We preferred the lower area and were very happy with electric and water only, in a 38' Class A.
WiFi was good, 50amp electric stable, and large dog park (1/2 acre). Couldn't get tv antenna reception from our site but that was the single drawback to an outstanding stay (and we didn't miss it that much!) We definitely plan to return here again. - ziaptrn

Typically we stay in State Parks, so to stay at this RV resort was a real treat! Especially for the kids who enjoyed the WiFi and swimming pool. They begged to stay another day!
The laundry facility was nice and convenient.
Our family wanted to visit the 4 corners on our first night there and I asked for advice from the owners who didn't seem to know what time they closed.
The next morning - checkout was at 11am-which seems a little ridiculous to me- but sure enough at 11am another camper was waiting for our site. I still had laundry to finish, I felt rushed out. - Ladybuggfloyd

This campground is close to the National Park. They have very clean restrooms and showers, however the park itself it very tight when it comes to having room for your rig. We were so close to the next rig we couldn't put our awning out. Also 99 percent of the sites are out in the open no shade. The Wi-Fi is way below satisfactory. - Randy Debbie
Jul 2016 - $42.00
We stayed six nights and loved it here. Very nice people, very clean bathrooms and showers, many washers and dryers and a nice pool. The only negative are that Wi-Fi really is not good, and only Verizon cell data works somewhat.
The large premium sites are excellent. The sites in the back have a nice view and are pretty quiet. - JM Outwest

This is all rock, narrow site, picnic table under other sites, slideout not very level, no real good area for dogs, limited cell and wifi. - 16 Crusader

The campground is beautiful and clean. The host was excellent and the campground is well organized. The bathrooms were clean and sufficient. Definitely would recommend and stay again. Campground accommodates larger trailers. Wonderful public fire pit. - Brian11
Oct 2015 - $23.00
$23 rate includes $7 daily park fee (you can have this waived with $70 annual pass). All sites at this time of year are first-come first-served. The weather was still quite warm for October (though chilly evenings) and the autumn colors are breathtaking on the La Platas! The entire campground is still open but will be closing the west side and half of the main campground once it starts to snow - the campground stays open year-round. It's basic dry-camping so a generator is needed. There is a dump station and water spigots close enough to the road that you can refill your tanks if you need them. The vault toilets are well kept and campsites are clean. Only the main campground has sites long enough to fit an RV, the west campground is mainly for tiny trailers and tents. All sites have a picnic table and fire pit, and they sell large bundles of firewood for $5. All the sites are under tree cover, away from the lake so there's not much of a view. Sites are well-spaced and lots of tall brush that makes it feel very private. There are a few pull thru's but mostly back-ins. The lake is kept stocked with rainbow trout. There are also 2 heated yurts that can be reserved. It's a nice well-maintained state park that seems very quiet in the off-season, except for all the wildlife you can hear in the evenings! I work online so Verizon service is critical for me - I was able to get steady LTE data at 30% signal strength on the mifi and voice signal was good too. - Sara C.
Jul 2010 - $15.00
Nice Colorado State Park with 25 sites. No utilities, but has dump station. Small fishing lake within a short walk of campground. Heavily wooded, well spaced and private sites. No problem for our 38' fifth wheel. About 9 miles from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park. Good AT&T cell service and Verizon internet. A bit of work to find an open 'hole' in the woods for our direct TV but got it to work. Rarely saw camp hosts, but park personnel through park quite often. Saw deer in camp. 3 water spigots located throughout campground but are far from most sites, bring long hoses to add water to tanks. Pit toilets were clean. No showers. Great price for a nice camp spot, great location. 7,000 ft elevation, warm days, cool nights. Campfires allowed. - Brujomar

Be careful entering campground from the Cortez side because the entrance is at the bottom of a hill. There are limited sites to hold a larger unit. We camped in a 35' 5th wheel. Blocks will be needed to level. Trails connect at campground for hiking. Nice picnic table and gravel areas. - CowgirlCreations

Beautiful National Forest campground 8 miles East of Mancos at milepost 63. No hookups, no dump station, pit toilets. We spent a week "off-the-grid" here enjoying the quiet and peace in our 40' motorhome. Campground is quiet and well kept. Without hookups it is never busy and stays a wonderful retreat from the noise and packed feeling of most campgrounds in the area. Sites are wonderfully spaced and all would fit a big-rig for either pull through sites or back-ins. - lgr_001

We stayed here in 2012 and loved the park. It has not changed much but I understand that there have been some problems. It is about 4 miles off the main highway and 6 miles from Mancos but that suits us just fine. Nice and peaceful with lots of cows and horses nearby and some wildlife. Electricity, water, and wifi OK. Our site was level and gravel but some sites not as good. We had a campfire the first night but then it was "red flag" and no fires allowed. - rockfarmer

It's gorgeous there. We hated to leave. It's is a ranch style campground. We watched a mother fox and her 4 babies play every night. There were deer in the field and other wild life around. The people were very helpful and friendly. We did stay two nights longer than planned. The roads and sites are not paved. Very highly recommend. - Chittenden

Large shaded spots, friendly management and workers. This park is very quiet as it is 3 miles off 160, but the road is paved. I plan to stay the summer here, out of the Texas heat. - rvingbob

Nice park and closest to the cliff dwellings. We got to choose our spot and had a nice one next to a grouping of trees. We felt like we had ample space and the ranger campfire program was pretty neat, talking about early visitors after it became a National Park.
There are all kinds of boondocking options from open field and neighborly, to secluded against the trees. I will stay here again. A little expensive for dry camping, but we didn't make reservations. Park Service says no reservations, but they do take them. - steammaker

No full hookups were available so we had to dry camp. Price is high for no electric or water hookup. Site too narrow and short. We could barely fit the truck next to the site. They need more full hookup sites. Bathrooms were clean. Great access to the park. Quiet area and deer nearby. - Zzpfeiff
Aug 2015 - $20.00
Level site surrounded by grove of short Gambel Oak trees. Lots of wooded space between neighbors. Mule deer wandered past the site every evening - the kids loved it. Very quiet. Easy walk to the bathrooms. We got to choose our own site - the campground rarely fills up. Glad we found a site that was shaded. Some sites have no shade and get as hot as the surface of the sun in late afternoon in August. No lights on the roads meant a sparkling night sky. Saw shooting stars and Milky Way nightly. Knife Edge Trail adjacent to the campgrounds. We will definitely come back here on our next trip to Mesa Verde. - BeeDee

The spaces in the front part of the park were spacious and easy to navigate, however the part by the cabins and tent area were extremely tight. It takes a real effort to get in and out of these spaces. The sites were gravel and level with lots of nice trees. A pleasant flowing river runs through the campground and there is also a still pond and a mosquito problem. The children in the tent area do not observe quiet time, especially on weekends. The area has beautiful mountain vistas, great fishing, and cool nights for good sleeping. Be sure to visit Galloping Goose Museum, a must for RR buffs. - Daiseydog

Great park. Friendly/helpful staff. Spacious sites with mature shade trees. Grassy area between sites. Nice playground for the kids. I did not use but nice size laundry room. Ice cream sundaes for $2 Saturday evening and other evenings a dinner is offered for a nominal charge. My only suggestion, better chairs for the river edge and maybe trim the grass. I would definetly return again. Good attractions in the area, Ex: Mesa Verde Nat'l Park. - a_d travelers_2

Great Campground with lots of space between sites, mature trees, modern clean facilities and a big rec room. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The owners Lainey & Billy served up Ice Cream on Saturday night to all the kids young and old, making everyone feel welcome. The fish were biting and not many bugs, perfect. Verizon LTE weak but worked well using WeBoost Cell Repeater and 20' tower. The park WiFi worked OK. The site included a concrete patio, 50amp, water & sewer and cable tv. Park Well Water was a little muddy without a filter. - MIL-SAT

This KOA is in a great location, right at the edge of Cortez, and a short drive to Mesa Verde. The campground is pretty large, and sites vary quite a bit from one area to the next. Our area was a huge gravel lot with almost no trees, so it wasn't very attractive. Other parts of the campground are more wooded and look a little nicer. Many of the RV sites are very narrow and close together, with RVs parked facing alternating directions with shared utilities between them (an arrangement we're not fans of). Some of the sites are wider and traditionally arranged--our site was one of these which we appreciated. The free WiFi worked pretty well during the day, but was quite slow during the evenings. Both AT&T and Verizon worked well without a booster. There's a nice walking trail around the nearby lake, and the large Cortez Dog Park is a very short walk from the campground. We loved the dog park and were there with our Lab every afternoon. We'd stay here again, due to the great central location and great dog park. - LifeRebooted

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. - kallee

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. - AspenTrailmama

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. - mohocamper

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. - PARTYOF2

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. - Graciela

Brand new park. 5 level, graveled back-in sites with more long-term sites in wooded area. Large community building with game room, baths, showers, small store & book exchange. Small rental cabin. All sites with full utilities. Nearby town of Dolores with all services and Dolores River and Lake McPhee. Owners are most anxious to completely accommodate any request and happy to do so. I would be glad to return. - OutbackTrekers
