5 Parks near Mancos, Colorado
May 2016 - $35.00
This Owners of this park go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant. They shared local history and gave maps and suggestions for interesting sites to visit. We had truck problems and they willingly held our spot in case we needed to stay another night.
The grounds are well maintained and the layout is easy to get around. Big open areas of green grass are nice. Plans are for a walking trail through the massive green area. Although there is some highway noise it is minimal since the camp sites are behind a half acre dog run, pool, put par, hot tub, and office areas.
The park is just across from the entrance to Mesa Verde NP. Very handy for Park access.
We loved our stay here and highly recommend this park. The only reason I didn't give a 10 overall score was the light hwy noise. - mazamamomma

Great campground to use as a base to visit Mesa Verde and other places in the region. The owners care about your concerns and are very helpful.
The Wi-fi was okay for email but not much else. Verizon signal is low but useable. Easy drive to Cortez for groceries and restaurants. I stayed for a week and the campground was not busy until my last day. When full, you will be very close to your neighbor. - jnateg

We stayed one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The campsite we had was toward the front of the park and had trees with some shade. Bigger rigs are in the back of the park and have no trees. The bathroom facilities were very clean and it was obvious that the owners really care about their park. They provide a portable fire pit for $5 delivered to your campsite and a hot tub looking out to the Mesa Verde butte. You couldn't be any closer to Mesa Verde unless you camped in the park. We would stay here again. We also made the trip into Durango for dinner which is about 35 miles each way. - Roaming Casita

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

We thought this park's website was awesome, and the lady on the phone was so sweet! Well, then we arrived and things changed fast. The three women behind the check-in counter put my credit card in the red real fast and they took an hour to fix that. Then we were taken to our space. All roads in park are dirt and badly need graded. SLOW! Our space was anything but level. Utilities were ok. Wi-Fi was iffy. Dust from ATV's & golf carts (each employe drove one) was terrible. - asphaltmaniac

Nice park, but needs to be updated. Sites for the most part are not level and in need of tender loving care. Definitely not a resort; just a stop over park out in the woods. Too many work campers and they all seem to be chiefs. We were promised a pull-through and in order to get satellite TV we would have had to park in the street or un hook the tow car with no place to park. - PAYOFF
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.

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

Okay place to stay and visit Mesa Verde. They have about 6 long gravel pretty level "premium" full hook up 50 amp sites, others are a little tighter and shaded. Has a pool and small store however they close at 5:00 ON THE DOT. Most campgrounds near National Parks are open more hours. Signs are not lit make finding it in the dark a trip. WIFI is non existent and no cell data service. Must have satellite for TV. No fires, again, this is for park visitors expecting to "camp". Probably stay somewhere else next time. - teepee51

We stayed for 4 days in October. Staff was very nice. We were put in the back next to a large open area very suitable for exercising our dog. Sites are large, clean and seem to be level. We had a great time there being only 1 mile from the Mesa Verde visitor center, 6 miles from Cortez and 7 miles from Mancos. Near the end of our stay I tried to get morning news on the over air TV, but being between several shade trees we could only get one channel. If TV is important to you I would discuss it with the staff before you setup. - chamaman

Pretty remote park. Closest town of any size is Cortez about 6 miles away. There really isn't anything in the town of Mancos. The bathrooms are NEW and VERY nice for an RV park. The biggest problem was the noise from any vehicles driving on the base rock surface that covers the entire park. No vehicles driving around, then it's nice and quiet. - Tom Sch

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
