Located within Montezuma County, Colorado, Mesa Verde National Park is a must-see destination for RV lovers of all ages thanks to the unique Ancestral Puebloan Cliff Dwellings. The history of the park dates back to more than 7500 BCE when the Mesa Verde was inhabited seasonally by a group of Paleo-Indians known as the Foothills Mountain Complex. The unique cliff dwellings were built by the Foothills Mountain Complex, and they are still standing today thanks to the preservation efforts made at the park.
The dwellings are the main attraction to guests of the park, and they stand as true archaeological wonders. A fun piece of trivia is that Mesa Verde was the first national park in the United States known to preserve works of mankind when the park was established way back in 1906.
Along with over 5,000 archeological sites, the park also has many other great activities on offer, including hiking, birding, stargazing, and campfire talks.
