Mesa Verde has fascinating secrets. Elaborate stonework, delicate artifacts, and ceremonial kivas dug deep into the earth. Discover the D-shape of the ceremonial Sun Temple. Investigate the geometric patterns on paintings inside Cliff Palace. Examine the dance plaza of the Fire Temple. Climb a hand-hewn 32-foot ladder at Balcony house. Survey the panoramic views from four-story towers and crawl through 12-foot stone exit tunnels. All are the mysteries of Mesa Verde National Park - exceptionally unique and distinct and like no other place in the world!


Today the park attracts over 500,000 visitors annually, who travel to explore ancient treasures and spectacular cliff dwellings in our nation's largest and richest archeological preserve, and to take an unforgettable journey back to the dawn of America's heritage and history.

Open from April 20 – October20, 2013, the lodge at Mesa Verde offers 150 rustic rooms, fine and casual dining, on-site tours, retail stores, a 350-site campground with a pancake breakfast, and endless walking trails. Spanning over 81.4 square miles, with over 4,000 archaeological sites and over 600 cliff dwellings it’s easy to understand why Mesa Verde has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Situated just across the highway from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park, the employee shuttle offers complimentary rides to the following park locations: Mesa Verde National Park Visitor Center & Museum,  Far View Lodge & Far View Terrace ,and Spruce Tree Terrace & Morefield Campground.

When will I get paid?

Paychecks are delivered every Thursday.  Please note that it may take up to 2 weeks to receive your first check.  Please plan accordingly.

Can I get direct deposit?

We strongly encourage employees to receive their paychecks via direct deposit. There are numerous benefits to this.  You get paid faster (paychecks get direct deposited into your account on Thursdays) than receiving a paper check and you will not need to keep large amounts of cash on you or in your room.

How do I sign up for Direct Deposit?

You must provide a blank voided check or a letter from your bank to the payroll department (no exceptions).  It will normally take 2-4 pay periods before direct deposit will be activated.  You will receive a paper check in the meantime.  Mancos Valley Bank in Mancos and Cortez, CO is available for those who want to open an account once they are at the Park. They offer a free checking account with direct deposit.
