Great Location!

Many thanks to our hosts for a perfect location! One day is not enough to visit Mesa Verde but we did a great survey. Would highly recommend this location. Friendly Hosts!

Turner Ranch

Restful night in Cortez countryside, convenient to Businesses in Cortez where we needed to go for truck maintenance the following day as well as grocery shopping. Gracious hosts offered electric but also wifi which we had not had a connection to for a full week.

Beautiful spot, wonderful hosts

The hosts are very good about communicating directions and responsive with communications. Their driveway was a bit tricky for our 30’ 5th wheel, but we enjoyed a quiet night in their serene setting. We took advantage of 120 power ($5), and enjoyed getting acquainted with the hosts.

Lovely stay

What a great location near Mesa Verde NP. Some road noise but this did not bother us at all. We parked in the trees which kept us cool. Used the table and chairs to eat evening dinner and watched the stars come out. Appreciated the 15 amp and wifi. We felt most welcome here.

Great stay close to the Canyon of the Ancients

Our first experience with Boondockers could not have been better. He waited for us with his flashlight and guided us in. Thank you for that!
It is 6 miles to the trailhead to the Canyon of the Ancients where we saw wonderful 1,000 year old artifacts.
Great hosts. We met the dogs and the turtle.We will have to come back to meet the cat...
The parking spot us level with access to electricity and internet.
Thank you

Scenic Getaway

Hosts were extremely helpful and accommodating!! He even replaced an old outlet so I could hook to 20amp to run a/c for my dogs which I SUPER appreciated! WiFi is spotty so bring a booster if you work on the road. Great place to dock if ever out this way!!

A Most Accommodating Pair

Though our stay was short, I wanted to stay longer. Very respectful, kind and accommodating. Especially love Tina Turner.

Nice stop near Mesa Verde

Turner Ranch were great hosts. They provided a nice level gravel spot to stay in. There is a bit of an incline to access the parking area, but we had no problem in our van. The canyon where they are located is very scenic. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Easy to find and super nice people

Nice quiet overnight site

We were passing thru the area and just needed a overnight on our way home. The Turner Ranch site worked just fine for us. Kturner are nice Hosts and very accommodating. Our travel trailer is under 20' which fit the gravel RV parking site well. Just enough room including my RAM tow vehicle. We would stay there again if we visit the area.

Very pleasant stay at the Turner Ranch! First hosting experience for them and first guest stay for us(after hosting for 3-4 years). Quiet, comfortable boondocking spot looking out at the valley. Thanks so much for hosting us.
