We absolutely loved Morefield Campground at Mesa Verde! It is a large, well laid out and very clean campground.
We reserved a full hookup site ahead of time and were very pleased.
There were nice (flush) bathhouses nearby, though you would need to go into the "campers village" to get a shower if you don't have a full hookup site with the needed equipment.
I will say this - the showers are very nice if not completely convenient. There is also a laundry and grocery in the "campers village" as well as a Ranger's station that is manned each evening. You can purchase tickets for the guided tours from this station as well.
We saw a bit of wildlife - deer and such - while at our site. Very neat.
You can also walk to Ranger talks in the ampitheater. We went to one and found if very interesting.
I would absolutely recommend staying at Morefield if you are visiting Mesa Verde.
I would also recommend looking into renting a small car if you are driving a motorhome and don't tow a car. There is no shuttle service like in many parks and the distances here are quite long on steep, curvy, and under construction roads. There is an Enterprise in Cortez that rented us a cheap car for $20 well spent dollars a day.
