Mancos State Park
Montezuma County, north of Mancos
Mancos State Park in southwestern Colorado is a haven for outdoor activities all year round.
Spring offers canoeing, kayaking and wakeless power boating in Jackson Gulch Reservoir. Winter brings cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing as well as snowmobiling on trails in the San Juan National Forest. Fishing and camping abound at other times of the year, with access to nearby attractions, including Mesa Verde National Park, Durango and the San Juan Skyway, a Colorado scenic byway. Nearby, Lone Mesa State Park is under development.
Two yurts are available at Mancos State Park that can be reserved year-round, cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Other areas in the park are open for year-round camping.
