Smaller RVs can pull off at South entrance to the road and high clearance can continue on to the lake and trailhead further up the road.
Tent spots are available the entire way up. Water was only available at the lake in August so come prepared. Lots of elk trails, and the views were fantastic. Road to the lake can be a bit busy and dusty if you have a spot close to it btw.
Nice places to stay for a night. Several places to park but the road seems to get rougher as you go. Each spot can easily fit multiple campers or vehicles. Flags in rock pits stating no fires at this time but other campers were having them. Arrived around 3pm on Friday and only saw 2 other campers.
A pretty typical nartional park campground - not many trees - small spaces right off the path. However, the bathrooms are clean and the walk to the walk to the monument is short. I love Hovenweep and was thrilled to have the opportunity to spend the night - giving me the opportunity to photograph both the sunrise and sunset.
This RV park is 6 miles from the entrance of Mesa Verde and is open before and after the other parks in the area. It is well maintained and a very short walk to a great town, the town you wished you grew up in We were literally standing on the corner when the mayor came up to us and asked how she could help up. The bakery has the best food as do the other restaurants in town. We spent a day just walking around town.
This is a large campground in the National Park boundaries. It has camper, RV and tent camp sites as well as 17 group sites. There is a small store and a shower. Each site has a picnic table. You can also get tickets to the Parks attractions, but do this as soon as you get there as reservations can be a day or two out.
Neat and tidy and friendly. This park is in the middle of Cortez, so you literally drive through"historic downtown Cortez" to get there and pull into it right off the main street. That's a little unusual. The park itself is a simple layout; the typical racecourse layout. An oval with sites on both sides as you drive around. The pull through lots are in the middle, of course, and that's where we stayed. When we arrived, we were greeted nicely and directed to our site. Pulled right in, and all the hook ups were in reasonable spots, making our set up easy. We did have to use ONE block on our front passenger tire to keep from hanging by our jack, so I wouldn't say the site was 100% level. Enough room to easily park our rig(29' 3") and our tow vehicle, a Honda Fit. Everything worked fine: water, sewer, electric. Did not use the cable TV that was available, and never even tried the wi-fi. My cell signal was strong enough(middle of town) that I just used a hot spot for the little bit of Netflix streaming we did that evening. The campground is spartan but nice. My only gripes, really, are that the sites are quite close together, and it's near enough to the main street that you do hear some traffic at night. You don't forget you have neighbors. But we'd still recommend this spot.
