My wife and I stayed here this past March, and it was amazing! There were two rigs parked in the two best overlooking spots when we got there, and they definitely seemed like they were staying much longer than 3 days.

The actual sites are SUPER nice, tent pad, fire ring, vault toilet, picnic table, beautiful view. And everything seems either really new, or very well maintained.

My wife and I actually just made a video highlighting this site and another BLM free campsite near Mesa Verde! Check it out for more detailed info.

That is the one!! These are the coordinates for the site we stayed at. Royal Gorge State Park FREE Campsite: (38.464011, -105.292609)

You will NOT be disappointed! Let me know what you think when you get there.

I was thinking I might go there today,  but I ended up in Co. Springs.  It might be a while till I get to check that one out.   I will let you know as soon as I try it.  Maybe later this week.  The beauty of this life-style is that your plans can change in minutes!

Thanks,

Pat

I was the original contributor of the Mesa Verde BLM site. The area is continuing to evolve. Curiously, they've designated sites, but not done a 'designated sites only' rule posting.

Yea. As soon as you turn in you can see that people have made a few “designated” spots. We drove past all of those, made a left and went up to the top of the hill. You could tell not many people made it up to those spots. We will definitely stay there again. And hey, thanks for contributing!

Nah, maybe next spring!  I'm in Raton, NM heading for Pahrump, NV.  

Thanks again,
