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.

Mancos State Park, Mancos Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very well accessible and maintained. Staff are knowledgeable and eager to ensure safety and a pleasant experience. All available resources are utilized by employees who seem to encourage family atmosphere as well as attention to the needs/expectations of the individual.

  • 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!

  • clean, well maintained and friendly staff. plus there were no idiots when I was there!!! beautiful place so far from the road you cant hear it!!!

  • Quiet, good campground, nice lake, fun place for kids. Clean restrooms, all you could want.

  • 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.
