Sleeping

There are plenty of accommodation options in nearby Cortez and Mancos, and Mesa Verde can be easily visited as a day-trip from Durango.

Within the national park, visitors can stay in luxury at the lodge, or rough it camping. Overnight stays give convenient access to the many sites during the best viewing hours, participation in evening programs and the pleasure of watching the sunset over Sleeping Ute Mountain from the tranquility of the mesa top.
