Our Site #: FHU
Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):
3.5/5: This was very much site dependent. We lucked out with a very large pull through site with no one on one side of us. We loved the trees that surrounded our site and we felt like we had plenty of space. Had we been in one of the back-in sites on the perimeter, I think we would have felt more crunched in. But overall, it's a standard commercial campground with standard commercial spaces.
Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):
5/5: This campground is very conveniently located right in the center of Cortez. That meant we could walk to the grocery store, restaurants, bars, and whatever else we wanted. We were about 15 minutes from the front gate of Mesa Verde National Park and less than an hour from Four Corners. There's a lot to see and do in this area and this park was convenient to all of it.
Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):
4.5/5: Site quality was very good with very even gravel sites and well placed utilities. They have a secondary campground exit they open each morning to make it easier for rigs to exit the park since turning out onto the main street would be difficult in traffic. You do need to watch when your coming into the park. The entrance driveway is pretty steep and there are a lot of marks from people who have bottomed out. But, overall, big rig accessibility was good.
Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):
4/5: You have to call for reservations, but the people at the front desk were very nice and they didn't mind accepting Amazon packages for us, which was very helpful.
Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):
4.5/5: Wifi was generally very good. It would kick us off occasionally at night, but generally, it was pretty solid.
We really enjoyed staying at this park. While the campground itself is pretty standard commercial stuff, it was so conveniently located in a town that had everything we needed, that we didn't mind. The people who work there are friendly and work hard to keep the place up. They were always leveling the sites and making sure everything looked nice. We also appreciated how easy they made it to recycle.
