Stayed in Campground 1 in Site 128 which was a FHU. Campground was nice but the FHU spots were a bit closer than I have seen. There are other spots in Campground 1 that are electric only with shared water that were more spaced apart and set in the trees, we had trees around us but none right in our spot. Very small playground area, shower house at the other end of the campground looked newer than the one by us and they are doing some sort of construction there as well. For what it is worth I liked the looks of Campground 1 better than Campground 2 as Campground 2 felt more like your standard private RV park, however it is closer to the marina and boat ramp. A few channels OTA and cell service was fine (AT&T). Campground host was fairly active and enforced quiet hours, mainly on sites near his unit but not at the far reaches of the campground. Nice paved walking travel located next to the campground. Turn at the end of the campground by spots 125-130 very tight and some larger rigs had trouble making it.

Make sure you make your reservations in plenty of time as sites during prime vacation times book up quickly. Cable was good, although half of the channels showed as mirror images. Cell reception was spotty, and no wifi. It is all about location with this campground as you are conveniently located a short 10-15 minute walk from the rim (it also connects to a greenway that is paved and will take you throughout the park), or right on a free shuttle bus loop that will take you right up to the Visitor's Center which will allow you to connect to all the other shuttle bus routes throughout the park. My site was sloped pretty badly and required me to use almost about 16 levelers and lower my tongue jack to the ground to get my camper level. The only downside was that the Delaware North Corporation, who runs the campground and many of the other contracted services on the South Rim, has permanent, temporary, and trailer housing on the south side of the campground. Some of these units are pretty rundown or have a lot of clutter around them. Other than that, the location could not be beat. I would camp here again.

Great park and a great value for your money. Big thing is to remember that you will be charged a $7 per day (expires at 12 pm the next day) fee to use the park, make sure you pay at the visitors center or, if after hours, use the self pay station. Pads were concrete and level, all hookups were easy, and the picnic area and fire pit were great. We had a wonderful view of Colorado Springs and it was very easy to get on and off I-25 to all the attractions northwest of the city (Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, and Pikes Peak Cog Railway were all only about 20 minutes away). AT&T signal was strong. If you have a dog that you like to take on hikes be aware that they are not allowed on trails, kind of a bummer but the other benefits of this park outweighed this negative. Don't be nervous about the bear and other wildlife signs, just be smart with your food and all will be just fine, we had zero issues.

We were only looking for a place to spend two nights that would allow us to see the Royal Gorge and go rafting and this location did that. Despite being a decent sized park, all full hookup sites are right on top of each other and it makes you feel very crowded when the rest of the park is completely open. Site was all dirt and slightly sloped. It was uphill from my sewer connection to the dump spot, even with sewer support holder my tanks would not drain, had to drive to the dump station on the way out to empty the tanks. Also, water and electric connections are at one end of the site and sewer is that the other end, all hoses were stretched to their limits and I only have a 26' camper. No cable and there were no over the air channels to be found. WiFi was good and cell reception was okay (AT&T). Main issue was the stickers, everywhere you walked you ran into them, except the gravel drive, they even worked their way through our ground carpet. Road noise was not all that bad and we had a site right near the front of the property. One of our nights was a Saturday and we could barely hear the live band when we were sitting outside of our camper and not at all once inside. Yes there is a helicopter but they have talked to the pilot and he rarely overflies the campground, even if the winds make him takeoff in the direction of the campground he quickly turns and flies over the neighboring farm land. I would stay here again for how close it is to their rafting company, located across US 50.

Alpen Rose RV Park

Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay:

Nice park just on the North side of Durango. Took about 10 minutes to get into the heart of town. My site was pretty sloped and required me to use about 16 levelers as well as raising my tongue jack pretty high to just get the camper level. Cable signal was strong (about 8 channels), WiFi was strong (they give you password), and cell reception was good (we have AT&T). All you can eat chuck wagon breakfast was cooked every morning, it smelled great but we did not feel like paying the extra $8.95 per adult (I think children were $5-6). Self-service dog wash available for $10, trout pond available (looked pretty stocked) but you have to keep what you catch (no catch and release) and pay $4.80 per fish, and a pizza place is located in the office and open everyday until 8 PM. Washer and dryers were open until 10 PM and run you around $5 to wash and dry one load. They have a nice above ground pool (open until 8 PM) but the playground was limited to two swings and a tether ball. I would stay here again.

American RV Resort

Albuquerque, New Mexico

Nice park to stop and spend the night, did so on our way from OK to AZ. Made my reservation online and when I got there found out that the site assigned to me was going to be too tight so the staff moved me to another site that was just long enough so I did not have to completely unhook. They did all this despite the fact that it was 30 minutes after the office closed. Cable was a bit fuzzy but there were plenty of over the air channels available for our brief stay. Breakfast in the morning was simple (coffee, juice, cereal, toast, bagels, pastries, eggs, and oatmeal) but enough to get you up and moving, especially when it was all included in the price. Most of the full-timers were in the back of the park so us "temporary" patrons did not feel like we were encroaching on someone's house.
