10 Parks near Towaoc, Colorado
Aug 2016 - $35.00
We booked for two nights as we were visiting Mesa Verde. Sites are good with plenty of room, reasonably close and level. We were not aware of the alcohol ban, as the site is in the reservation area (we are from UK so not aware of the rule when booking). Visited the casino for lunch, wish we could have gone somewhere else, dark and dingy, and situated off the smoking side of the casino so not very pleasant.
We decided that the site wasn't for us and only stayed one night. - Singaporeally

The park overall was not bad but needs some sprucing up. The indoor pool was not well-kept, dead bugs on the floor, only 2 chairs, etc. Noticed the nearby playground was choked with weeds and unusable. Plus's were the nearby casino and a good restaurant in the casino. Be aware the advertised rate of $18 is for tent sites, not RV sites. Also, they are no longer honoring the advertised (Internet and billboards) $5/night free slot play. This park is OK for a night or maybe two but definitely not a vacation destination. Would not necessarily stay here again. - Ilene S

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 clean park near downtown Cortez. Close enough to walk to stores and restaurants.
One side of the campground abuts a machinery rental business. It gets rather noisy when they are moving the bulldozers and other machinery around or they are power washing the equipment. - jnateg

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

Very clean and quiet park. Paved roads with level gravel parking spots. Lots of big motor homes. Easy access from Main Street. - GmaB

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

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

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

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

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

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
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

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
