Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Welcome to the Mancos State Park Department!

Mancos State Park in Southwestern Colorado is a haven for the year-round outdoor enthusiast and traveler.

In the spring, summer and fall, canoeists, kayakers and wakeless power boaters enjoy the calm waters of Jackson Gulch Reservoir. In the winter depending on conditions there are great opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing. Fishing enthusiasts enjoy excellent fishing for yellow perch and rainbow trout. Travelers from other parts of the state and country use Mancos State Park as their camping headquarters when they visit the numerous attractions in the area, including Mesa Verde National Park, the San Juan SkywayPublic Lands, and Durango.

Mancos is a great place to camp. Set in a beautiful ponderosa forest, the upper loop of the main campground and both yurts remain open through the winter. The park is centrally located to a wide variety of local attractions?.

Come and enjoy a fun-filled, quiet and beautiful time at Mancos State Park!
