The unique cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park are a striking testament to the preservation efforts made here. It is a true archaeological wonder. Mesa Verde is actually the first national park to be set aside in order to preserve works of mankind. It is an unparalleled opportunity to explore and experience a unique culture among a landscape just as surreal. The park provides such a wonderful opportunity to glimpse into a diverse past.
The park features only one campground, yet harbors about 600 cliff dwellings. It’s a popular park to visit, and with good reason. Your stay is sure to not only be pleasant and rewarding, but also comfortable. The people of the park work hard to ensure you stay in a place you’ll be itching to come back to. With so many parts to explore within the park, you’ll have to take multiple trips just to take it all in.
Pack up and get moving! Most of your travels here will be on foot or by bicycle, especially if you’ve parked a rig at Morefield Campground. There are no shuttle buses, but, plenty of guided tours are provided. Just try and take in as many ruins as you can. You may even lose count. It’s amazing how many areas were carved out to support this growing community.
