We have Wifi, Drinking Water, Hot Showers, Bathrooms, Shade, and an equipped Camper's Kitchen for our guests to enjoy! note: many photos are outdated and taken prior to improvements. We cannot remove photos uploaded years ago by our hipcampers. Camp Kush: Once used as a church camp, it is now a Campground for all to enjoy! We are a perfectly located vacation campground on 40 acres with amenities and wide-open spaces. We have Tent, RV, Tipi, and Cabin spots. Amenities include hot showers, an equipped community kitchen, a pavilion with hammocks, tables and ping pong, etc. Enjoy complimentary coffee, eggs, filtered drinking water and more. Camp Kush is located in the Great Sage Plain in the shadow of Mesa Verde National Park with panoramic mountain/mesa views of the Four Corners region, all only 5 miles southeast of Cortez. Camp Kush is in an arid desert climate. Water is scarce, stored in cisterns for use in camp. Because of this we ask that you be conservative with water use in camp. We are a cannabis-friendly destination & are inclusive! We're happy to give you the local's only hook-up to find hikes, ruins, swimming holes, lakes/rivers, hot springs, tacos, coffee, cannabis, a spot to rent kayaks, bikes- you name it! Just ask. There are so many things to do/see nearby: Mesa Verde National Park, Canyons of the Ancients, Hovenweep National Monument and Phil's World Mountain Biking. Raft down the Dolores river, maybe rent an SUP or kayak and chill on a quiet reservoir. There are several museums and cultural centers in the area as well. Durango and Telluride are each about hour away, and Moab is about 2.5 hours away-including Arches and Canyonlands National parks. The best/nearest airport is in Durango. Cortez has Boutique Air with connections to Denver and Phoenix. The nearest large international airport is in Salt Lake City or Albuquerque.

The cabin was gorgeous and had all the needed creature comforts. The campground's bathrooms and shower houses made for a lovely stay. I'd stay here again in an instant if/ when I pass through again.

RV PAD By Cortez & Mesa Verde!
Very peaceful site. Just stayed overnight while passing through. Level pad let us leave the truck hooked up for easy arrival and departure. Views were beautiful of the surrounding mountains. I'd definitely stay here again while in the area. Looks like it would be a great place for a large gathering as well.
