If you are planning to camp during an upcoming trip to Colorado, please help protect our public lands by buying local firewood near your destination campground. Firewood can spread harmful insect pests and diseases. If you have brought firewood from another state, please contact the Colorado Department of Agriculture immediately for instructions on how to dispose of it.

Mancos State Park, CO


Just off the beautiful San Juan Skyway and surrounded by the majestic San Juan mountain range, Mancos State Park is southwest Colorado's hot spot for excellent fishing and camping. Located 14 miles from Mesa Verde National Park, the reservoir at Mancos State Park is a beautiful setting. Pleasant climate, year-round trout fishing and a campground in a mature Ponderosa pine forst combine to create an outdoor haven that can't be beat. Neighbors include the Four Corners area of the state (where the borders of Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah meet). Mancos State Park has 32 campsites and 2 new yurts available.
