The sights at Mesa Verde are amazing and the campground is a fine place to stay while exploring. We found mid-September to be a perfect time to be there - crowds were gone and weather was warm in the daytime. This campground is spread out with many sites separated with trees. Bathrooms were ok; free showers were a plus; camp store was helpful without the tourist craziness at some parks. This campground is inside the park but still a drive from the main features, so you must plan your days carefully to avoid driving back and forth. This is the only overnight option except the park lodge and hotels in surrounding towns. We loved watching the stars and listening to crickets at this high-altitude haven. Be sure to give yourself at least a full day to see the basics of this park with a couple nights of camping to enjoy the setting.
