Nice spot, but kinda confusing to get to

Turn at 37.2266762, -107.6950140 from the highway (google maps doesn't show the road, but it's visible on satellite view).

Amenities Not Available to All Campers

These are full hook-up sites. Amenities include playground, pool, laundry, bathrooms, and shower. We were notified before hand that we could not hook up to water due to freezing temperatures. (It is November.) When we arrived we discovered the bathrooms/showers were only open 8am-8pm. An…

Great Campsite

This campsite was beautiful, easy to get to, and close to town. The temperature was low, but enough blankets and you’d be fine. The view of the rock formations was nice, and the distance to town and Mesa Verde is unrivaled.

A Gem in the Mountains-A new renovation of an 1888 outpost on Stoner Creek

We prefer off the beaten path and when we rolled into Dolores, CO in our van late on the 25th of October we were happy to find Stoner on Dyrt, about 20 minutes outside town. Owner Scott greeted us with a dozen eggs from his hens, brought us wood for our fire and agreed to sit and share his story…

On a whim

While driving into Durango finding a place to stay overnight this time of year (November) was a blessing. The website would not let me book our stay because it was within 24 hours. I called and there was one spot open. We arrived and were escorted to our spot. There was tree removal and fall clean…

Bare minimum

The park should be ashamed of this campground. Sites are too close together. don't camp close to the bathroom because the lights never go out at night in defiance of dark sky protocols. Trash dumpsters are impossible to use. Transport your trash to the nearest overlook, instead.

Incredible campground for how close it is to the cliff dwellings

This campground was darn-near empty when we were there (due to COVID there were no dwelling tours), but we weren't complaining because we could do whatever hike or check out whatever dwelling we wanted to without the hassle finding parking or waiting for space to open in the walkable dwellings.

Special and unique park

This national park is so special and mesmerizing. I was sad the tours of all the villages were closed due to covid (I visited in September 2020, I have plans to return 2022 to do some tours). Most of the park you can see from driving and parking different spots, but there are also lots of hiking…

Small, laid back campground with full hookups

This is a small campground, only 8 sites, outside of Cortez, CO with easy access to Mesa Verde National Park and to Cortez for supplies.  It is a gravel lot with each site being a pull through; big rig friendly (45'x75').  There are shared covered picnic tables.  Full hookups with 20/30/50…

Convenient location to stay overnight near Telluride. Close to the road, but also close to a vault toilet across the road at lizard head pass trailhead. Nice views and plenty of room to spread out from other overnighters.

Golden horn review

Location is insane. Silverton is a small town 4 Miles away that you can stock up before heading out. Scenery at the camp sites is amazing. Cold at night, was here mid October. Loved it

Next to Mesa Verde National Park

Ancient Cedars RV park is a great place to stay when visiting Mesa Verde National Park. It's located directly across from the visitor center on the other side of the freeway. The RV park has a combination of full hook-ups to campsites. 

The park has a playground with a miniature golf course.…
