The current owners of this park bought it a couple years ago and are obviously trying hard to make it into a nice place. It's on a hill and most of the amenities such as the pool, hot tub, dog run are down near the road. That gives some distance from the road noise, but for old, out-of-shape, sea-level people like me it's a bit of a climb to use the facilities, especially at almost 7,000 ft elevation. The sites are gravel and typical size for RV parks. We tried three before we found one that we could level without blocks. The hookups were fine and worked well. There is a nice log cabin clubhouse with a big screen tv and game tables if you are into that, and a decent little laundry room. Restrooms/showers were clean. My only complaint is that I could not get the wi-fi to work. The owner offered to have me bring my laptop to the office and she would call Tengo and get it working right, but I had already wasted a lot of time and didn't want to take more so I just used Verizon data which worked well. I appreciated her wanting to make it right, though. This park is right across the highway from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park and between the towns of Cortez and Mancos so convenient, although not walking distance, to services. In the future I might try one of the other parks in the area only if they had better wi-fi, but I also wouldn't hesitate to come here again either. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

This is a great park. The hosts are very accommodating and friendly. Gave us a wonderful view site with lots of room. Spa was great! Access to Mesa Verde just across highway. Thanks for a great stay. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park right across US 160 from the Mesa Verde National Park entrance and visitor center. The bathrooms and sites are kept spotlessly clean and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. The park has a nice large dog area and 2 small hot tubs as well as a pool in summer. We've stayed there twice now and will stay there again when visiting the area. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lots to see in the area if you enjoy archeology and history. Mesa Verde NP, Canyon of the Ancients NM, Hovenweep NM are all easy to visit. There is also a pair of wineries on county road G.

On gravel, the site was level and all hook ups worked. Roads could be wider and a little more turning radius by the office. All in all a nice park located very near Mesa Verde. We were here for a rally so have no idea of the rate. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The new owners since July of 2014 have taken HUGE strides in upgrading this park and it shows everywhere in the park!

This is a family owned resort (not a national chain) and the owners made me feel as though I was part of the family. Everything from helping me with my motorhome to inviting me to dinner twice during my stay (2 weeks, then came back for a month because I felt so comfortable). The personal touch applied by the owners and their helpers made my stay VERY enjoyable! It was the perfect place to reunite with my brother after not seeing him for 10 years. The amenities of this resort are TOP NOTCH and spotless!

Visitors to this park that DO NOT TRY bending/breaking the rules for their own benefit will TOTALLY ENJOY their stay here.

I WILL RETURN! Thanks for everything Ancient Cedars. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Mesa Verde National Park was a bit frustrating. You can't see any of the ruins (up close) with out taking a tour $ and the tours are only scheduled at certain times throughout the day. we ended up leaving after 2 hours of just driving through the park.

We loved the location right across from Mesa Verde National Park and the our view from or site of the Park was fantastic. The new owners are really fixing up the park and would stay here again in the future. Neighboring lots are nearby, with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel and features a picnic table.

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. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Anicent Cedars Mesa Verde RV Resort, owner at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort responded to this review

Thank you for staying with us and enjoying our facilities. I am perplexed because I personally have Verizon and check it often with no issues.
Our campground is unique and we have the right size site for all. At the
time of your visit we were only half open because of the unusually cold weather.

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. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Wow what a unique place to stay in the up-graded cabins. These are not just the basic camper cabins. The log rec center with big screen was great for our grandkids. New owner purchased this park in 2014, so don't pay attention to reviews before July 2014. Recommend to all. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Cabin.

We stayed 2 nights here. It's a nice, quiet park. We lucked out and got a spot at the end of a row, so we had a fire pit and grass. Most sites did not have fire pits due to the proximity of the trailers. Lots of amenities including a pool and hot tubs. We had a good Verizon signal here. We were in the area up front that has some good trees. There is another area further back with no trees. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
