This was a nice park, located across from the entrance to Mesa Verde NP. The roads are gravel, but the sites were flat, FHU 50 amp. The roads in were a little narrow, but manageable. Staff were nice and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

Best park in area for visiting Mesa Verde. Has pool, miniature golf course, hot tubs and 2 playgrounds, rec room with pool table. It is an older independently owned park so it doesn't look like the slick chain parks but it doesn't cost as much either and is more convenient. Had good Internet connection, however, people in the back section had problems with Internet. This park has excellent tent sites--shaded and private. Much better than the tent sites inside the national park. I certainly would stay here again!!! We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice staff. Park is clean but pricey. Sites are right next to each other with no room with slides out. If you have slides on both sides you may want to go elsewhere. Other than that we had a good stay. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I was planning on staying at this campground, finding the website wonderful. I pulled in and was shocked, it looked like the pictures of this place were taken years ago. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

We found this park to be excellent. Sites were clean, bathroom and showers were very clean, and the folks in the office were very nice. It's also a nice, quiet park. We didn't use the pool or golf, but they looked very nice as well, and we would have used them if it were warmer. I was surprised at how close we were to the entrance of the National Park; with such a long drive in the Mesa Verde park itself, this was a great plus for this RV park's location.

This is a great park for kids because it's on farmland. There are goats, cows, and donkeys to visit. There's a great playground, a pool, mini-golf and a games room. Really set up well for kids - and there were lots of kids there. The lady that checked us in (I assume the owner) was grumpy and rude. There was a mistake with our reservation that she didn't take responsibility for, despite the fact that I had a print-out of my reservation. The mosquitoes were really bad at night, so bring bug spray! I saw a for-sale sign at the entrance of the park - not sure if they're selling the park or just some of the land there. The best thing about this park is it's RIGHT outside of Mesa Verde. Since visiting the houses in the National Park requires a loooong drive in, the closer to the park you are for your visit - the better! I'd probably stay here again. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

It is a good choice to visit Mesa Verde since it is close to the entrance. The pool is very small but cool. The restrooms were clean but we had to go down steps to get to them and it was tough with our bad knees. We used this as a base to visit not only Mesa Verde but to also visit Hovenweep, Four Corners and the Anasazi Heritage Center in Dolores. The price is a bit high but they can get it due to their location. We probably would stay there again since the KOA in Cortez is even more money.

Office staff helpful; restrooms/showers clean; the cows next-door were quiet. A friend recommended this park and we will recommend it to others. We will stay here again. Pool could have stayed open a little later to give the old folks a crack at a swim. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed staying here while exploring Mesa Verde. The park staff works very hard to keep up their park. We stayed five days and will stay here again. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Gravel sites with a wonderful view of Mesa Verde Park! The view and convenience commands the rating. Close to everything Mesa Verde and is better than being in the Park. This park needs some maintenance, but not serious and is for sale. There were no activities going on in the hall, but it seemed to be a friendly atmosphere. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly people and a nice campground. We were in the back lot which is elevated, so we had great views and clear access for our internet satellite, and the sites are large enough for big rigs with no problem. The sites are all gravel, however, with no grass to speak of and, although the sites are large enough, they feel too close together. They have farm animals and lots of activities for children. All in all we liked this campground a lot and would stay here again. They are Passport America but we didn't know until after we left, so didn't get the discount. Also if you don't have specified directions, it's helpful to know that you reach the campground from the Mesa Verde Park exit -- it's actually on the frontage road and not on the highway itself. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We ended up staying 5 nights instead of three because we so enjoyed our site. Site 46 is probably one of the few Pull-Thrus that is lined with trees. Also the park seems to be part of a farm and has a very open country feeling. You can view Mesa Verde Mountain from most parts of the park. We enjoyed walking around it with our pets. Negatives were the wifi signal was weak and we couldn't get a signal from our TV antenna. However, the park is right across from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park and so couldn't be more convenient. Instead of moving our rig to Durango, we drove from the campsite the pleasant 36 miles to take the Durango- Silverton train. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff is very friendly. They were very willing and outgoing to help us with any of our needs. There is a miniature golf course for the kids. This park is part of a working farm, so access to pettable animals is available. A very clean park. Some sites are very close to each other. It is just across the highway from Mesa Verde National Park and close to the town of Cortez for any and all of your needs. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was an excellent place to stay prior to our visit to Mesa Verde. The owners are kind and caring and assure that all services needed were provided to their guests. We had a RV and used one of the cabins for the "extra" people in our party. The cabin was small but clean, and was exactly what we needed. The views were tremendous, and this was our favorite campground during our 2 week stay in the southwest. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a very bad experience. We showed up with no reservation. The park was almost empty. We asked for full hookups including wireless internet as advertised. We paid $44.21 tax included and headed for site #6 as directed. Ten (10) minutes later we went back to the office because this site does not have a Wi-Fi signal. The girl at the desk was not willing to help too much. Finally she directed us to another site up the hill,but there was still no Wi-Fi signal. We went back another time the to office. She had no solution, and she did not want to help at all. I explained that we absolutely needed internet access this night and that was why we stopped at this RV park. Then we decide to go elsewhere. and we asked for reimbursement. She refused. I asked to speak with someone in charge. She called another lady who was no more help ! In all we paid $44 to stay about 20 minutes in this park! please go elsewhere. This is a tourist trap. This way of doing business says it all. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.
