Nice campground. very clean. Good location. We enjoyed watching the Durango/Silverton train pass by in the mornings and afternoon. The trees were changing colors and were beautiful. They will be closing for the winter very soon.

Great check-in for starters -- they must have changed front office staff (from previous reviews) because the young woman and man who checked me in couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. (Seems like he might be the owner's son, and she's his fiancee.) Good amenities; great wifi. Bathrooms were clean, if a bit familial. :-D It's definitely closer quarters,...

For reference, this summer we stayed at 4 different RV campgrounds in Durango. They were each truly nice and had pros and cons. I think of all them, this was our favorite spot in terms of sufficiently having access to the things we needed the most: 1) Shaded sites -- not all are shaded, but we requested one and they...

Long story short, my wife and I helped my cousin and his wife move from Anchorage, AK to Colorado Springs by driving vehicles. one of them being an RV. Once we got to Colorado Springs my cousin let us borrow his RV to explore Colorado. Hence, this review. I tried getting a reservation at the Durango KOA but they had...

Most sites are shaded and fairly level. Staff was nice and helpful. Pool was clean and fun place to let the kids unwind. Enjoyed watching the Durango and Silverton narrow gauge train roll through 3 times each morning and afternoon.

We only stayed one night. The bathrooms were clean. Rv spots are tight but there are trees for shade. The campground is close to a hill so it gets shaded very nice in the evening. It also has a trolley stop so you don't have to drive into town if you don't want to unhook your RV. There was some...

The Good: The Campground has spotless bathrooms, green grass, a comfortable heated pool, and some tree cover. They claim to have Wi-Fi, but any time I tried to connect, there was no internet service. The radio signal is strong, but no connection. They know this the office, but they do not care. The Bad: the owners do not know the...

Came for the Durango "Dinosaur Train"(skip it and take the kids on the actual Durango Silverton steam train). Kinda passive-aggressive person checked me in. It's a dirt lot with trees, a couple spots have a river view. Cliffs are nice across the road. There is a pool,by the road,no lounge chairs or tables or umbrellas or any shade at all....

This is the only campground on the Durango and Silverton Railroad and the Animas River also runs nearby to make viewing from our big window very enjoyable. I swore I would never again stay here even as much as I like seeing the trains run through because the internet ranged from nonexistent to hopeful. Wife prevailed upon me so I...

As mentioned in other reviews roads and sites are gravel I did have to use leveling blocks to get level. The sewer connection for your site is at the back of the site, so take this in to account or you may level twice! I did! Full hookup, no problems.the bath house was clean, although a bit dated. Didn't try...
