New owners took over this park in July but you can see that they have a vision. A 1/2 acre dog park has been put in place along with some new trees and shrubs. 2 nice playgrounds, a pool, and 2 hot tubs. The entrance to the park looks a mess because the dog park is on the road front. The tractor tires and other apparatus for the dogs is not immediately obvious so one thinks its a junkyard. The dog loved the space however. Maybe a few screening shrubs could make the entrance more appealing. Speaking of dogs, leash rules need to be enforced. Our neighbor, who looks long term, left their dog off the leash whenever it was outside. Not appreciated when our poor dog is always on a leash for her safety. Saw a dog pile not picked up - I wonder whose it was? :( As for our site, it was in the open so good satellite access. New load of gravel has been spread so it's nice a thick even outside your door. There are several sites with trees if you want one. Some sites have fire rings or they have portable ones if you ask. Great view of a butte in Mesa Verde National Park which is just across the highway. Easy access for sure. While the whole cg feels a little messy right now, the new owners are very friendly and beginning work to improve it. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

In Cortez, there is a BLM Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and Museum. Takes about an hour for the museum. They have hiking and tours available but it was cold and rainy the day we were there.

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

We appreciate the feedback. We agree that the dog park could use some sprucing up. At the moment it's a work in progress, as it was devoid of any equipment when we first took over. While shrubbery would improve it's appearance greatly, we have been in an extreme drought, and it seemed more responsible to allow the plant life in that area to deteriorate. However, water allowing, we will landscape in an effort to improve it's ascetic. In response to the leash issue, we also see this. We constantly remind guests, and will improve signage to inform those unaware of this safety issue. Thank you for staying with us, as we look forward to serving you again.

Info for our site: Sites were level, made up of gravel, stones and loose ground/dirt. BBQ pit was a metal ring with hinged grill unseated in the ground and appeared to be tossed around and left uncompleted. Picnic table was old and wobbly. WiFi on and off for the few days we stayed. No help from office. Antenna picked up a few channels... need to point East, office had no idea. AT&T and Verizon cell phones just barely received 3g or 1 bar, very week signal. Close to park entrance. Garbage Container close by. NO RECYCLING Water Pressure OK Water smell or taste was noticed...drank with coffee and used daily for dishes and shower. 30 AMP / 50 AMP appeared new. Sewage Pipe appeared new. Spaces between sites were nice. Trees for shade were available for smaller RVs. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

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

Thank you for your review. As we are currently improving sites, some may appear unkempt as we refine the park. That site in particular had recently been converted for full hookup to provide privacy for full service rigs.
Neither the town of Cortez nor Mancos provides a dedicated recycling service, however, our landfills are sort-type, and do separate garbage from recyclable materials.
We noticed the change in water quality and inquired with the city; they had recently purged lines after replacing parts of the system.
Regarding the internet, the park has a recently updated system with boosters that carry signal from 3 towers into the interior of the park, but has reasonable bandwidth. As a result, the system has a protection in it that limits any excessive use, i.e. streaming video, downloading copious images, etc.
Thank you again for bringing this to our attention. We will continue improve some issues. We look forward to having you as a guest in the future.

This is the worst experience we have ever had at a campground. We travel in a 2016 37' Allegro. We were given a "big rig" site which would not accommodate our motorhome and tow. The rest room for the "big rig" sites is basically an outhouse with a flush toilet. It is a 4 x 4 shed with no air conditioning. When I used in 95 degree heat I thought I would pass out. The WiFi does not work and there is little or no cell phone reception. The owners are the rudest I have ever encountered in our years of RVing. Don't waste your money on this park.

We are sorry you were displeased with your 70 ft long site on the end row, with views for $38.50 with discounts, taxes and 50 amp. We tried to be civil with you as you were asked to leave after 5 complaints of your continuous barking dogs, and no remorse for the disturbance to the other campers. We didn't even make a big deal for your dogs refuse when our work camper asked if you needed a bag, you said you said you did not need one, leaving the work camper to clean it up for you. Happy Camping!!!

Absolutely beautiful park. Not big, but it's not the size that counts, just big enough to be welcoming. The view is amazing of Mesa Verde, which is literally right across the highway. Quiet day and night. Hosts were wonderful, helped us out with a longer stay and all very friendly. They all treated us like old friends.

The number one draw of this RV Park is that it's directly across the highway from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park - with the view of the mesa. I was in a new section of "big rig" sites. Unfortunately, they squished too many of them together in the "sardines in a can" fashion. The older back-in sites seemed to have more room. If they had just done one less site in the row, they would have been perfect. Oh well. Otherwise, lots of good things about this park besides the view. Seasonal pool, community "patio" with the perfect view of the mesa, very nice staff, easy on/off Hwy 160, close to Cortez for a quick run in to get dinner, groceries, etc. Despite the drawbacks of too close proximity in the Big Rig sites, I would stay here again for the convenience of Mesa Verde.

This park is about a mile from Mesa Verde which is a must-see. Our camp faced the Mesa so the view was very good. We also visited Durango which is about 30 minutes away. Our site was level. There are plenty of in-park things to do (putt-putt, horseshoes, etc. The office folks were very accommodating. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 nights in our 36' MH. Typical Western Campground, clean, nice sites, good wifi, located at the entrance to Mesa Verde NP. We were repeat customers and brought friends this time. Upon arrival, with reservations, we discovered that their website announced an "October stay 2 nights, get third free" special. When we questioned why we were being charged for 3 nights we were told it was an "online special". Then we were told, no, they would have given the special if we had known to ask for it; that it was up to us to know about the discount when placing our reservation. We were told "it is called good marketing" and "buyer beware". Eventually the Park's Management reconsidered their refusal to honor the "October Special" posted on their website, but we are still not pleased that we had to "get ugly" during the conversations. Nice campground, well placed but; their marketing just cost them a repeat customer. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

First things first. All of the RV sites are level gravel pull throughs. Power and water are good. There are also some electric and water only sites (there's a dump station), tent sites (in the woods) and rental cabins. Verizon service was spotty for cell and non existent for data. In park WiFi was very slow at times. The owners of this park are very proud of it and they have good reason to be. They have put a lot of work into really making this a "resort". In addition to the swimming pool they have 2 hot tubs, a 1/2 acre dog park, mini golf course, and an elevated patio with grills and an unobstructed view of Mesa Verde. There is a log cabin rec hall with a big screen tv and pool table, and there is a 100 channel digital TV antennae. We stayed two nights in a 40' motorhome and 45' rigs would easily fit into the big rig sites #47-59. We would definitely stay here again.

Staff very friendly. Right across freeway from entry to Mesa Verde and vistor center where you purchase the tickets to the ranger led tours. We were there 4 days and purchased all of our tour tickets the day before we began our touring. Tickets are only $5/person and kids under 6 are free. We bought rib eye steaks from the front office and they were fantastic. We stayed with friends - we were in site 60 (pull thru full hook up) and they were next door in site 46 (back in water electric only). Perfect location for us as one of the playgrounds was right across the road. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cortez is 9 miles east with a Walmart and a Hertz rental location. Durango is to the west about 45 minutes drive (cute little place to drive for dinner and fun shops (we even saw a banjo playing street performer outside of the Irish Pub we ate at). Four Corners is about 45 minutes drive from the park as well.

We split our time here with a week between two short stays. Our sites were up on the hill (45 and 62) for smaller RVs only but very good separation between sites and lots of privacy. The grounds are well kept and restrooms clean but a bit of a hike from the upper sites. Staff was most helpful and don't forget the 3 min ride to the entrance to Mesa Verde. We enjoyed both of our visits and would stay here again if in the area. momdoc. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for location to visit Mesa Verde National Park, this cannot be beat. It is literally right across the street from the entrance to the Park. It gets full, so you do need reservations. We got an end spot, so did not feel crowded. Some of the interior spaces were pretty closely spaced. The downside of our location was that it was next to a very-busy dirt road that runs next to the side of the park, so it was quite dusty. There is some road noise from the highway, but not bad at all.

All utilities worked well. There was no problem getting DirecTV as there are few trees. The folks that we dealt with at the front desk were very nice. One wonderful thing about the park is that they require you to turn your outside lights off at night and they do not have a lot of lights, so it is wonderfully dark. Hopefully other parks will take a cue from this one. Given the location and general pricing in the area, the rate is a real bargain. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is located just off 160 and close to MV entrance. We had a nice pull thru site with a great view. Water, electric and sewer were conveniently laid out and reliable. We did have to disconnect our water because of a hard freeze. We were able to reconnect after dawn. No cable, but over the air TV was good. Wi fi was also good. Gravel sites and roads. Site was flat with a wood table. AT&T coverage was weak. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is literally across the interstate from Mesa Verde National Park. The sites are close but we had plenty of room for our slideouts. The sites were gravel with little grass but there are new tree plantings around the park. We did not use any amenities like hot tub, game room or goofy golf. The cedar trees around the park were beautiful and the view from the upper loop was amazing. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.
