Your Basecamp to Adventure!
Southwest Colorado's towns of Cortez, Dolores, Mancos and Towaoc embrace the archaeological center of America, anchored by world-renowned Mesa Verde National Park. Just a short drive from the Four Corners Monument, Arches, and Monument Valley, Mesa Verde Country is centrally located on two National Scenic Byways — The San Juan Skyway and Trail of the Ancients. Whether your passion is exploring the past, enjoying spectacular wide open vistas, or hiking rugged canyon or mountain trails, you're guaranteed the vacation of a lifetime in Mesa Verde Country.
Hiking, biking, fishing, boating, rafting, golf, horseback riding, hunting, skiing, and snowmobiling are just some of the popular sports in Mesa Verde Country. With our incredible climate, many recreational activities are available year round, and our location makes it possible to cross country ski in the mountains on a winter's morning, and hike in our warm red-rock canyons on a winter's afternoon.
