About Mancos State Park, Mancos

Mancos State Park is a Colorado state park. It is located near Mesa Verde National Park, the West Mancos Trailhead and the San Juan Skyway. The park is known to have been a dwelling place for Ancestral Puebloans. They lived in the Four Corners area in ancient times from AD 1 to 1300. It was also later controlled by the Spanish for 200 years from the 17th to the 19th century. In 1948 the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation commissioned the Jackson Gulch Dam, and it was officially included as a part of the Colorado state parks in 1987.

  • What a beautiful and impeccably maintained park! When we drove in after a long day of driving and saw the clean and raked site, we felt welcomed and comfortable. We could tell that the camp hosts took pride in their caretaking, which makes all the difference. We have camped in many places, and it is always apparent when you have good people looking after a campground. The weather is cool and lovely, the sites are well spaced and shaded, and we were so glad we booked our stay here and drove into Mesa Verde rather than staying in the national park. Mancos State Park is quiet with a family vibe, and I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • The amenities were great. Camp grounds were well maintained, nice and plenty of room. The problem was the people a space next to us and further down. They rolled in about 5:30pm and were loud from the get go. It was not being loud that bothered my family but the vulgar language until 1am. The constant swearing had my 7 year old asking what they were saying. I can tell you all the people's names because they were so loud. At about 8:30pm their dogs got into a skirmish and the Park Ranger came by an asked if everything was ok. The said "everything was ok and they would just drink beer" Soon as the Park Ranger left here is another round of alcohol. Also possible underage drinking was involved. Just no one to enforce any kind of semblance of order. I know you can't choose who you camp next to but someone should have done something about the people that clearly do not know how to camp.

  • Best maintained state park camping facilities I've ever seen! Sites were perfect when you pulled up and vault toilets were extremely well maintained. They didn't even smell!

  • Had a great time. Campgrounds were really well maintained, close to the water and toilets. Lots of shade some decent trails.

  • Be aware this is a self - service park. No one on duty? But it's the Colorado wilderness, so... great little lake. Near mesa verde. We did a summer day trip after mesa verde (stayed at navajo lake sp). Bet this place is neat in winter...
