Lightner Creek is one of my favorite campgrounds in the U.S.! The staff/owners are exceptional and the camp hosts are great. The modern bathrooms are ultra clean. The park is small, but it is and cozy. Our site was by the stream which was very enjoyable. I love the paved roads. The great thing about Lightner Creek Campground is that it is secluded, yet right near Durango. It is also convenient for visiting Mesa Verde National Park. There are no seasonal or permanent residents except for the camp hosts. We will visit Lightner Creek everytime we pull west!

We stay at Stone Bridge Campground a couple of times a year. The park has a lot of seasonal or permanent residents, but all sites are exceptionally maintained. The campground sites are level and the pull through sites can accommodate any type of rig! The only thing negative is the older bathrooms could use some updating. My biggest complaint is that they do not have any hand soap or towel in the bathrooms! I would think this should be required. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. You can walk to restaurants from this campground.

We have stayed at this campground for several years every May for a motorcycle rally. The new owners are working miracles at this park. There are a lot of seasonal residents, but they are not intermingled with the regular campers. The new owners have strict requirements for the seasonal residents to keep neat and presentable sites. There are many big rig sites available. The bath houses are older, but kept clean and stocked. The owners have plans for total bath renovations. The park is a wonderful relaxing place. This is an excellent park for a staging area to enjoy Helen, Georgia, waterfalls, many state parks and the mountains in general. They are pet friendly and motorcycle friendly. The paved roads in the park are especially nice for keeping the dust down! Wonderful play areas for children. In the summer, they have many planned activities for the campers.
