You must get a reservation for the full hook-up sites. We had the first site, across from the first toilet. The space is a bit soft, but not terrible. It is also about a 30 minute drive from the primary attractions in the park.
However, the Morefield campground was reasonably private. We were visited by deer almost every day.
The only complaint we had was the generator noise from the non-FHU sites. It was only a problem on two of our 5 nights we stayed there, but a distraction we wish had not happened. Take a spot up the hill a bit. That will help. - PKI

This campground is in the National Park but is managed by Aramark. Because we camped later in the season, we were in the host campsite - the host having left earlier in Sept. This was a very large site with 50 amp hookup. Unfortunately it was also next to the restroom & the garbage container. There was a constant odor from the air freshener & occasional nose from the garbage container. Other hookup sites were further away & really looked nicer although not as roomy. Very quiet & peaceful and the closest camping to the cliff dwellings. Lots of low oak trees that didn't provide shade but made our loop very attractive. The campground has free wifi but limited cell service throughout the park. - storms

Perfect location for a visit to Mesa Verde National Park as the campground is located four miles inside the national park. Once past the entrance station, the road climbs and winds as you travel towards the campground store where you register. The sites are back in and fairly easy to access. We had no phone service at our site but did at the back of the campground towards the amphitheater parking lot. - Mustcamp

This, as we've often seen, is an RV park with two personalities. The lower section consists of tight, narrow roads with tight, narrow, shady sites. The upper, tiered sites are huge, 120 feet long, very wide, nice picket fences separating the sites and a wide open, sunny view of the surrounding hills. These are the premium pull thru sites. Much nicer, less shade, more expensive. The entrance area is a bit tight but not too bad. Staff is friendly and helpful. The host will lead you to your site. The entire RV park is gravel, from the roads to the sites to the patio areas. The sites are level. The utilities worked fine, but we had an issue our first night. The water line froze. Never been in freezing conditions before and didn't realize the RV park had electric heat tape on the elevated water tap. Problem was, it wasn't plugged in and we didn't know better. Live and learn. Would help to keep it plugged in or advise guests on check in to monitor weather and plug in as necessary. Water pressure was o.k. No cable but great over the air. Satellite reception iffy in lower section, great in upper section. We had no problems with WiFI, worked well for us. The restrooms were great. Moen, American Standard and Kohler fixtures, spacious toilets and showers, ceramic tile from floor to ceiling and really hot water. Nice pet area with pond. Great location just one half mile from turn off to Mesa Verde National Park. - VegasVagabonds

We were on top of the hill on the west side of the park. Our space was a back-in and very large. It was level and could receive satellite signal. There were a huge number of OTA channels that we received. OUR FRiends were in the pull thru sites which were very long and level.
The hookups were conveniently located, although the water was a bit hard to hook up due to position of the spigot.
There is a pool, however it was closed for the season. There is an area with picnic tables, barbecues to use and propane fire pits, which is a nice feature that most parks do not have.
The office staff was very courteous and helpful. Led us to our site.
This is a very nice park in a great location for visiting Mesa Verde. - JoeVinnie

Sites were very unlevel, rear jacks at full extension to get close.
Broken sewer standpipe, reported to mgr, not repaired even though promised. Sad. No enforcement of dogs off leash in dog park. - pkunk

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. - peddy dick

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. - cfmelville

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. - D'art campizard

We stay here at least once a year--and it is always a pleasure. Nice walk around pond for nature and to take dogs, dog park right there, great views.
Owners are pleasant and thoughtful. Good areas for tent camping too. Close to town for shopping and to restaurants. - User2597

Stayed a week - great place, good views of Mesa Verde. Great spot for a base place to stay and visit all the surrounding area has to offer. Friendly staff that are always available throughout the day and even helping late arrivals after 9pm find their spot. - Root

I stayed just one night on my way through. The park is very pretty in the front and inviting. In the back it is a gravel parking lot but very well taken care of, neat and tidy. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My particular site #48, was spacious, almost level, and since I was on the back row had a beautiful view. I was able to park my 42' without having to disconnect my truck and still had plenty of room. The sewer connection was a bit to the back of the site, but I didn't use it so not sure how far it really was. Looked just fine to me.
This is a big rig friendly place and easy to maneuver. I don't mind all the gravel which someone else commented on, as I would rather have that than dirt. And this park is very well maintained which means all the gravel is super packed and level.
Very inviting nature walk around the pretty lake and my dogs loved that. There is also a fenced 3 acre off-leash park maintained by the county which is nice and close. I didn't use Wifi, laundry or bathrooms, but from what I could see as I walked around it was all as nice as the parking area. I would definitely stay again and would stay for multiple days if visiting the area. The only caveat I have is there were not many rigs here so I can't comment on how it would be if the park were full. - kdlee747

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. - dmkimm

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. - SilverBear

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. - SkipperGas

We stayed 4 nights passing through the area to visit the nearby National Park Service sites. While the park is centrally located along a 5 lane busy commercial road in the center of town, the access is very difficult due to the angle getting off the street, over the sidewalk and down into the park. This arrangement posed a scrapping and collision hazard. We had made reservations in advance of our arrival. After we registered, paid for our stay and started setting up in the assigned pull thru site (#37), the staff informed us that we were going to have to move as the site was needed for a departing host. The site we were told to move to (#35) would not work for us due to the tree canopy and slope. Every excuse a woman who seemed to be acting in a manager role used to explain why we needed to move applied to the host she was trying to put in the site so there was no justification for us to move but she maintained that we had to move. She offered no compensation or incentive to mitigate this poor treatment that resulted in a significant inconvenience. This was the poorest customer service we have ever experienced in our 5 plus years of full timing. We tried to go to another park in town but they were full so we had to stay in this park. We ended up in a back in site that required extensive blocking in order to get level. The interior roads are paved and site parking pads are compacted gravel. There are a mixture of pull thru and back in sites. Some of the P/T's were not easy to get into due the angle from the roads. Some of the P/T's were long enough to remain connected to the toad but the others were wide enough to park 2 vehicles abreast if needed. As the park was built on sloping field, it showed the park didn't completely understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as some of the sites had a slight 2 directional pitch potentially creating a leveling problem.
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. Don't stay here due to the poor customer service displayed by the female who seemed to be in charge! We would not stay here again! - bsb814

This was a nice park. Trees, grass, and picnic tables. Spaces were too close together. Showers and Laundry room were nice and clean. - Mustangmarilyn101

This is a very well run park with 3 park hosts that rotate schedules. They are out and about the property all day every day, cleaning, raking, monitoring. Called every day to let us know we had mail or packages arriving. Very efficient, very helpful staff. Library exchange, meeting room, group gathering area and cute little dog park. Laundry area clean and neat, as were the bathrooms. Quiet at night. We would definitely return here any time in the area. Strict 5 mph speed limit enforced. - MissMyGolden

$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

This park now has very friendly new owners that are really working on improving the rv sites! The view is beautiful and it is really a very restful site close to Durango and Mesa Verde. - J Welch

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

Nice shaded gravel campground with concrete pad patio & table in a beautiful setting right off the road, Quiet town so traffic noise wasn't an issue. Great people that run the Camp & it has a nice camp store. There is a walking trail along the river with a bench or two to take in the scenery. Close to town (2 miles) for shopping & also the road that goes into Telluride which is a fantastic road & town in itself. I will be going back there again. - Robert9999

We got in after hours and only stayed one night so didn't get to use any of the facilities but this appears to be a very nice and well-maintained park. The laundry room looked bright and modern and had a folding table, but no coin or vending machines. The restrooms also looked bright and clean. Our site was level and there was a picnic table on a cement patio. The hookups were at the rear of the site which might be inconvenient for some rigs. All the sites seemed to be of decent size. I could not get the wi-fi to work and I'm not sure they even have it, but since there was no one in the office to ask I can't say for sure. Verizon service was available but on the weak side. I would stay again. - Pdxjoanne

The owners are so friendly! We loved meeting them and enjoying the park that they've built. We had spot 3, which is a back-in. We spent some time doing laundry (complimentary, but only one washer and dryer set), and hanging out in their clubhouse, which is very well appointed. The owners also give music lessons (flute, piano, and guitar). - barnacle

I enjoyed my stay thoroughly! There is an amazing view of the sunset, and I definitely made use of the pool table. The owners are also incredibly friendly, and the entire property had great energy. I can't wait to go back! Best experience ever. - Hayley W

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
