Camped here for a week in a tent trailer. Being avid "boondockers" the idea of campground camping was not much of a thrill for us. But, with the wife pregnant, it was the only way to get her out. I have to say, I have found my new site in Durango. This campground is fantastic. We stayed in site number 12, which has the hookups on the incorrect side. I found it kind of weird, but I just hooked my trailer up to the front hitch and turned the trailer sideways in the site. This created a more private "front yard" for us, next time I am here I will ask for the same site and do it again. The sites are spread out a good distance on this side of the grounds. The big Class A and fifth wheel side is not so much, however, those guys are used to being closer together.

Joe and Cheryl go way out of their way to make sure that their guests have a good time. When the Lightner Fire started I got cold feet and emailed Cheryl. She emailed daily updates on the status up until we made the 700 mile trip up. Joe provided some insight on 4x4 trails in the area which had some fantastic views and really hit the mark with what we were looking for. All in all, our stay here could not have been better. We have a couple more nights here and are dreading the day we hook up and head back to Phoenix. If you are in the Durango area camping, regardless of your rig, this is a great place to stay. Don't waste your time looking around for an alternative, this IS the place to be in Durango!

This campground is very pretty. I do not enjoy camping, but I went with my family a year or so ago and I think this campsite is very nice. It has a pet area for my sister's dog and there are many cabins. If I go again I will try to stay in one of the cabins.

I have stayed at this campground twice, completely happy! The service is wonderful, showers and bathrooms clean, and pool great. The area is beautiful and I can't imagine staying at another campground aside from this one any time I visit Durango.
