10 Parks near Towaoc, Colorado
Jul 2016 - $18.00
Arrived late afternoon without a reservation. Was greeted by a friendly receptionist working alone. The park is behind the Casino and it's actual name is "Sleeping Ute RV Park." I had not had time to research on Google maps, so missed the first entry because all signage is for the casino not the park.
All RV sites are pull through and ours was easy to enter. It is not particularly level. My front wheels are almost off the ground. Hookups are located near the back of the site and I needed to be at the very front of the site to get my car off the road. I had no problem hooking up, although it was a stretch to reach the sewer. We were not disturbed by any noise during the night.
Could not use satellite as I was facing south and there was a tree shading the front of the coach. Cable would have provided the TV we watch, when we watch. I did not hook it up. Did not use their WiFi. Used my own with excellent Verizon signal. - xctraveler

Nice park next to casino. Most sites level, some will need a little help. WIFI sporadic at best. Cable tv channels not sharp. Security coming thru a couple times a day a plus. Verizon data and cell excellent. - rockhill

This is a nice rv park. Most all spaces pull-thru and spacious. Trash cans at each site with full hook ups. Bath house very nice. Staff great to work with. - JAYFLIGHTRV

Weekly rate with Good Sam discount. Very nice park, lots of shade trees, Sat dish marginal, worked on non-HD. Sites 52 to 60 (East side) back up to a rental company yard that can be noisy in the AM. Otherwise very quiet, no street noise even though it is right in town. DW says cleanest laundry facility she has ever seen! - Dennis M

Jul 2016 - $25.00
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. - gumper

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. - abqnm

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.

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

Sites not huge but big enough for my 35' fifth wheel and truck. Sites were level with good WiFi. Used as four-night base to visit the 4 corners, worked well. Outstanding view of Mesa Verde and Sleeping Ute mountains from the site. I will stay here again. - RCM11

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

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

$15 rate reflects national parks senior pass. Maintenance in the campground is poor. All sites are overgrown with grass/weeds. Understand that campground is ran by concessionaire, which is why it is in such rundown shape. They do have water spigots inside the restrooms, that you can hook your hose to, to fill your water tanks. Good place to stay and see park. They do have some full hook up sites available, but call ahead. Fuel at campground check in is cheapest around. Generator hours are 6am to 10pm. - JJ & CC

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

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

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

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

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
Jul 2016 - $40.00
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

This is a very nice campground with gravel roads and pads. We had a premium pull-through site that was very long and wide. Our section had no tall trees to interfere with satellite, and the wifi worked well for us. The park is 5 minutes from the Mesa Verde National Park entrance, and it's about 8 miles from local shopping. We would stay here again if in the area. - SMorin

This is a clean, quiet campground. Sites are near level gravel. Each site has a picnic table and shelter. There are lots of small trees, but little shade. Roads are asphalt, adequately wide, in good condition. There are 7 RV-only sites for rigs up to 32 feet, and smaller rigs can fit into some of the other sites. Verizon data service works very well. Potable water is available at the visitor center (max 5 gallons). Generator hours are 8-10 AM and 4-8 PM. Payment is self-registration, cash only. Although the roads within the monument are good, the roads from Highway 262 in Utah to the monument entrance are rough, with potholes, many cattle guards, range cattle, and a short unpaved section. I didn't drive the roads from the Colorado side. - wjzcbn

I'm not sure what campground the other people are talking about but we stayed there for almost 3 weeks and this is what they have. Decomposing toilets (no flush), some sites with electric (you pay $5 per night extra for them), no sites with full hookups, dump station but the fresh water was not working, fresh water available around the loops. This is a FS campground but it is run by the RMRC concessionaires. Most of the sites are very long and can accommodate large rigs but most will need a little leveling. You can reserve through "reserve.gov" or recreation.gov but it is not a very busy campground except on weekends. It is 17 miles north of Dolores then another 5 miles on a FS road (paved). There is almost NO phone service but occasionally we could get a signal for the computer and could text on the phone. We love this place with its spectacular views of McPhee Lake and easy access to the boat ramp. It is quite open with very few trees and can get quite hot in the summer but in September it is comfortable. - rhianna

BE AWARE: There are some discrepancies on the prices as far as what the website says, what ReserveAmerica says, and what you find out when you get here. There are only 4 sites with full hook-ups and you have to pay $25/night for these. There are also about 16 electric only sites. When you make a reservation through ReserveAmerica, they only collect the basic fee; be prepared to pay for other services when you get here. This is a very nice, quiet park in beautiful SW Colorado. Even on a summer weekend the park was almost empty. The host was very helpful and sells firewood and ice. A short drive down the hill is the reservoir. About 6 miles away is a convenience store where you can pick up bait and a fishing license (It's the Phillips gas station). Dolores is small and Cortez is about 12 miles away, do try to come with all you need. - Roaming Rob

This is the new McPhee Recreation Complex, run by the USDA Forest Service (not the old House Creek campground which is on the other side of the reservoir). The sites vary in size, but some are large enough for 40' MH. Boat ramp is a short drive from the campground. Campground has nice trails with incredible views over the reservoir (500 feet below) and some Colorado peaks. Only four full hookups, 16 with electric and some with water. - fulltimer126
