After visiting the 700-year-old cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde National Park's canyon walls, return to your own high desert oasis.

The towering flat-topped ridge of Mesa Verde National Park rises less than 15 minutes away from this KOA. After visiting the 700-year-old cliff  dwellings in the park's canyon walls, return to your own high desert oasis. Swim in the heated pool or round up a game of basketball or horseshoes. Enjoy the 1-mile walking trail around Denny Lake (with fishing along the trail) and the 3-acre enclosed dog park. Stock up on supplies and souvenirs in the grocery store and gift shop. Take a day trip to Utah's Monument Valley, the setting for several of John Wayne's most famous Westerns. In addition to Mesa Verde, Native American life is chronicled at Hovenweep National Monument and the Anasazi Heritage Center. Or visit the four corners monument where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet.

Mesa Verde National Park

Mesa Verde National Park is filled with fascinating secrets and ancient cliff dwellings. Over 4,000 people thrived on these plateaus between 600 and 1300 AD. They built stone villages on the mesa tops and constructed massive cliff dwellings in the steep canyon walls. The elaborate stonework, delicate artifacts and amazing petroglyphs are a man-made wonder. Climb through these ancient ruins and walk in the footsteps of the American Indians.
