Blanco River RV Park is a small but very friendly park. When we first pulled into the park, I was a little leery, because it is closer to the road than I expected. However, after checking in and backing into our spot, I quickly realized that there is very little road noise. If I didn't know any better, I wouldn't even know the road was right there. Everyone we've met at this park has been so friendly. There are several campers who stay here for the entire summer, and the workers for the park are very helpful. One of the workers even helped us back into our spot and made sure that we had everything we needed. (I even saw him run to his own 5th wheel to get a level to help someone else level their rig.) If we come back to Pagosa Springs next year, we will definitely return to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were fortunate to stumble upon this park. When we first arrived, we were slightly confused as it seemed like there were two parks merged together. Also, at first glance we were slightly concerned that the sites were going to be tight and cramped. But once we were checked in and at the site, it was all smooth sailing. Turns out there there was plenty of room. We had our awning out and still had a yard area where the kids were throwing a ball. Owners were amazing. The grounds were immaculate. You could tell that they put love and energy into keeping the grounds in top shape. We stayed in site 44 which was right on the lower Blanco River. The kids had a blast playing in the water. I am a picky person when it comes to RV parks, but this was a very safe, comfortable, and enjoyable place to stay. Would definitely recommend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is located about 10 miles south of Pagosa Springs on Highway 84. It is an older and relatively small park located in a small valley along the Blanco River. The river is only about 20 feet across near the park, but it runs clear and fast. Most of the sites are level and covered with grass/gravel, but are relatively small by today’s standards. In addition, there is little in the way of space for “toad” parking. When the park is half full, this is not a problem, but before we left it filled up and it was decidedly crowded. The park is not a resort, by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a nice place to stay while visiting the area. Although the park is surrounded by forest, there few trees in the park itself which makes for good satellite reception. We did not try the cable TV. There is ZERO Verizon cellular/broadband service (one of the camp hosts was able to use AT&T on her iPad, however), but their Wi-Fi service is excellent. Park management was very helpful and friendly. One of the park work campers gave us 4 fresh trout that he caught in a local reservoir. One unusual aspect of the park is that it adjoins another, even smaller park. As the story goes, two partners started the park and had a falling out which resulted in the park being split into two separate parks. We might camp here again if we can get one of the larger sites. Be sure to bring insect repellent… during our stay in early June, there were a lot of “no-see-um's” (tiny biting insects). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fantastic place! A little tight to turn into it from the highway but manageable. Quiet, family oriented. We stay here all summer and fly fish all the streams around. Awesome! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is set next to the river, which makes it enjoyable. If you are heading northbound on Hwy 84 be ready for a 180 degree turn that is very tight to access the park. You must cross a bridge that has weight limits to get into the park. Also, we felt that the sites along the river were very close together. The owner was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is nice but the rating is for the "location" right next to Blanco River and in the forested mountains outside of Pagosa Springs. Close to some great hikes. Lots of old blue spruce trees backed up against the mountain slope. Nice facilities kept spotless and a hot tub to soak away the aches from hiking & tubing. Staff (the owners) are the best you will find! We will be back frequently. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Site we were in was level and long. Plenty of space between rigs. Good power, water, and Wi-Fi. Owners are on site and very helpful. Laundry room was extra nice and clean. River runs right by the property. Getting over the bridge was no problem with our 40' fifth wheel and dually. No road noise to speak of, especially at night, not much traffic. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice quiet park. They don’t mow the lawn early in the morning when you’re sitting outside with your coffee trying to wake up. Can’t tell you how many parks that do! Some road noise but not a problem since the 84 isn’t heavily traveled. There’s a book exchange in the office. All of the utilities were good. Verizon cell service only worked with our cell antenna and booster. Didn’t use Verizon MiFi since the parks Wi-Fi was very excellent. No trees to interfere with our dome satellite. We had a river site and only saw a couple of mosquitoes the whole time we were here. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had an end site on the river and it was very nice. Grassy and shady, wide site. Bath/showers were spotless. Has a hot tub. It was very quiet at night. The owner is nice and is always looking after things. We will go back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very clean, nice place in a beautiful setting. However, we travel in a big rig, and this location is not really suited for that. There is a bridge at the entry rated for 12 tons max. We got across, but we weigh more than that (and we're only 39 feet). There are no pull through sites, though in the off season the owner let us park across multiple sites to create the effect of a pull through. BE AWARE, when you turn off Hwy 84, the gravel road forks. Go right toward the bridge. Then when you cross the bridge the road forks again. Right fork goes to Blanco River RV Park--left fork goes to Acres Green RV Park. (These run together as if one park, but not.) Some turns are tight for a long vehicle. We made it, but would not want to try with a longer unit. Wi-Fi is excellent, but there is no cable and not much to do in the locality. There is a nice laundry but no vending or supplies of any sort. The hot tub was closed when we were there. The restrooms and showers are great! Management is very nice. Blanco River is a mountain stream about 20 feet wide. The roads and sites are gravel and fairly level. There was some mud in the campground. (My tennis shoes needed scrubbing after each walk, but it was wet when we were there.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
The smaller size of this park nestled against the mountain is one of the many positives about Blanco River RV Park. The well cared for grass and landscaping, fairly level grassy sites, spotless restrooms and laundry facilities and very friendly, welcoming owners make this a great park to visit while in the area. The owners recently purchased the park, and they are committed to maintaining and even further improving it. Although near the highway, it is located such that you don't hear the low volume traffic. We will definitely return to this park when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a quaint little park about 8 miles SE of Pagosa with a very friendly staff. We had a great experience and would return again. Though there is no pool, there is a large hot tub which came in handy. Our kids also tubed the stream for several hundred yards and enjoyed that. I do wish they had cable, but other than that it was very enjoyable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a wonderful park. The sites are large and level with lots of grass. The wifi works great but there is no cell phone service for AT&T but I signed up with Skype for $2.95 a month to make phone calls and check voice mail messages. It is 10 miles to town. We are here for two months and are seriously thinking of coming back again next year. The park has new owners. Everything the previous posts say I second. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I almost gave this park a "10" but held off because of the lack of extra amenities. The owners are SUPER friendly and helpful. The restrooms aren't just clean, they are impeccably spotless. If you are lucky enough to get a site by the river, you can open up your window and smell the fresh air and listen to the soothing sound of the Blanco River right next to you. The park is very well maintained and the owners have put a lot of work into the park. It is a small park, but it still has a lot going for it. The hookups are close enough to have no trouble connecting (although you may need up to 20 feet for the sewer connection). The site I stayed in was plenty level and I had no trouble leveling my rig. There is a wireless internet (although it is not secured); if you want a secure connection, you will need to go in the office and connect via the hard-wire connection (which they will provide an extension for). There is no TV reception here and that is probably the biggest downside. The other slight downside is that it may be a little difficult to navigate down into it if you are pulling a tow vehicle. The bridge to reach it has a weight limit of 12 tons, if I recall correctly -- although big rigs apparently have no trouble crossing it because of the weight distribution. The price reflects the Camp Club USA discount. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area. All in all, this is a wonderful park to be at. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice and very friendly place to camp - for a night or a month. The sites are roomy, surrounded with grass, a gurgling year round creek nearby (10'), and exceptionally friendly hosts. A real treat! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is on the edge of a national forest. The Blanco River runs through it. It is so quiet you can hear the water from the campsite. The hot tub is great, but we stayed here for the purpose of visiting Pagosa Springs Spas. Grass campsites are fine. Staff is friendly and helpful. What a gem! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Great Park. Owner was fantastic & everyone was so friendly. We had kids with us & they were very kid friendly too. Would highly recommend this campground. Very clean- everything works & set up perfect for RV's. The only thing missing was Wi-Fi but the friendliness & helpfulness of the owner & Yon made up for the Wi-Fi. Will return again & stay longer next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We called this campground as we were coming into town. Luckily, there was a site available, and they agreed to have us. This is a small park, rather tight, but there was room for our 40' motor home w/ 1 slide in a level, graveled site. We cannot extend our large awning, but there is not much outdoor appeal to our site, anyway, just a sad little wooden picnic table. The sign in was accomplished quickly, and we had expert help getting the rig backed into our location and hooking up. Many sites seem long term, folks who have been coming for the entire summer for many years. They are all nicely maintained. It is a fair price for the area. I will agree that the entrance is a bit hard to see. We got very specific landmarks when we called. It is very convenient to downtown and there are friendly folks to tell you the local attractions. Nice place over all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. The Pros: Wooded, quiet, great Wi-Fi, cable and amenities. Cons: Easy to miss on highway, our spot was difficult to get out of. The owner is a nice man who takes you to your site and helps set up. He also helps, if you need it, to get out of your space. We had difficulty maneuvering around trees, rocks, trucks, etc. But our space was nice and wooded, level and very quiet. If coming from Durango, go through 1st Pagosa Springs town, past lake, down a steep hill and they are located at bottom of hill on left. Its an accident waiting to happen, very dangerous intersection. But we would definitely stay here again!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Entrance is difficult to see, a small sign and this park is behind two small stores. Little road noise. Roads are paved with trees on edge. Tight for big rigs. Gravel sites, which are narrow. Staff was very friendly. Water and power were good. Have many people coming back each year for summer, call for site availability. Campground was clean and well kept. We would recommend this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small park, beautiful pine trees, well maintained by family owners. Extremely short and narrow sites a definite minus. Limited availability in summer as all sites booked by campground opening date in early May. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground just North of Pagosa Springs, very clean laundry, gravel roads and sites. Pull through sites sloped very slightly front to back. Beautiful area but access to river is down steep stairs. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we arrived I really don't know what I was expecting but must say I was disappointed. The resort is not as displayed on their web site. Let's just say they were creative. The sites were relatively level although they did not appear so at first0 glance. Closely spaced but as they stair step up a hill side that gives you some semblance of room but you really don't have a lot of patio area. Very rocky and gravel sites. Must use a patio mat. Power and Internet (Wi-Fi) was strong and stable. Water pressure adequate and water taste was good. Resort has a eating and banquet area and they serve breakfast. Check in was poor. The staff or clerk on duty seemed overwhelmed and inept. Since I had prepaid she could not find information but did see I had paid. Wrote my site number on map and told me to try to come back later to register. What ? Well that did not happen I just went to my site and forgot the rest. Place was full as it was the 4th. Overall gives an unkempt appearance. Wildlife is all around and the campground has a huge family of prairie dogs that nest in all campsites. Overall the place is adequate but not much more. With a little investment and up keep the place could be nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is by no means a "resort," but it is a nice little RV park just past the eastern edge of town headed toward Wolf Creek Pass. The park itself is a bit run down, but OK. The pads are dirt and gravel, and are fairly level. There is some grass for each site. The 50-amp power (only a very few 50-amp sites, though, and the rate reflects the 50-amp site) and Wi-Fi are good; there is no TV, but satellite reception was good (most trees are small). Verizon broadband was marginal at best. Management is friendly and helpful. The highway is adjacent to the park, but road noise was minimal at night. Make sure your bedroom is facing away from the highway, though. They sell ice and a few other frozen items, and also have a freezer for guest items. There is one high-end RV park in Pagosa, but aside from that one, Elk Meadows seemed to be better than the others we visited. There is lots to do in and around Pagosa Springs. The hot springs are fun for an hour or two; there are several, but we tried "The Springs" and recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First, this is not a "resort". Once here there is nothing to do. All sites are full-hookup and there are clean individual restrooms with showers. There is a small clean laundry. The campground is along Hwy 160 west of Pagosa. The trees are small so no shade. There is good spacing between sites with grass: compared to many other parks. Our Verizon air card worked great but they also have WiFi which we didn't try. It's on the San Juan River but is difficult to use due to steep stairs. They water their grass continually but leave the hoses in the street/walking area overnight which is a hazard if using the bathroom. It's a well-kept campground and about the best in the Pagosa area, and we would return. The price is on the high end though for no amenities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Previous reviewer must have a hard time finding a park they like. Roads are dusty, but find one that's not in this location. All sites but 2 are pull through. Wi-Fi isn't working because they had a lightning strike. Seems like you could cut them a break! It is being fixed. We have stayed here many times and have no problems with the management or park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is old and seems a little rundown. It could use some TLC but woman who owns it runs it by herself and one helper. Traffic noise from highway is not too bad, and quietens at night. There are dusty gravel roads throughout the park some pull-through sites, and some back-ins 30/50 amp. You can walk down a hill to see the river but to get there is a long walk down rickety stairs. We stayed here because we were waiting on another couple. I certainly would not call this a resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
1. I paid more than the advertised price. My fault. I didn't check first and just assumed I was paying the right price. Now I look on the Internet and find I paid lots more. 2. "Resort" is a real stretch. This park needs serious maintenance, or a make-over. Gravel roads and walkways means chunks, stones, not pea gravel. 3. Calling this a riverfront resort is a joke. The stairs to the river defy OSHA. Anyone above 60 may die in the attempt. The riverfront is covered with brush. There is no way to view the river, or fish from the bank. You will need waders. And there appears to be a hobo camp at the bottom of the stairs. 4. Wifi was advertised, and inquires brought the response that the park had complete coverage. I asked if the selected site also had coverage brought an affirmative response. Then the money changed hands, and the wifi coverage disappeared. I had to change sites to get any coverage at all, next to the shower building where the broadcast is located. There the reception was one bar. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has very clean restrooms and showers in individual rooms. The grounds could be so much better if the owner would mow and weedeat more thoroughly. The owner is divorced and has a new boyfriend who is a jerk, which is the reason for our leaving early. We will not stay here again as long as the boyfriend is here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Although the campground is very well kept, it offered little in the way of amenities. The rec room is very small, hot and limited. They advertise themselves as a river resort but to access the river involves a long climb down old wooden stairs that are very hard to use and a long climb back up. The sign at the top of the stairs says use at your own risk. The river can not be seen from the camp sites. The volleyball court is overgrown and they offer no supplies other than ice and ice cream. It is on the highway (US160) so the traffic noise in considerable. The WiFi is good. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
No-frills park with good service and friendly personnel, and the only one in the area that I know of that is open in winter. DO NOT USE GOOGLE MAPS TO GET HERE! Google maps, including the one on this site, shows the wrong location for this RV park. This park is where Google shows "Hideaway RV Park (which is next door) to be. Right next to the road, so if you're a light sleeper you might have trouble. Admon note: The map pin on our site has been placed correctly to the best of our knowledge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fast, friendly check-in. Got a full hookup at a long pull through site with the Passport rate. Only RV park I've seen with satellite dishes at each site. Clean, modern laundry with very reasonable costs. Some road noise but it died down as night progressed. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not a bad, bare bones park. The $13 rate is based on monthly and electric is included. We were in the premium creek side sites at the end by the vet clinic. Lots of road noise and the kennel at the vet clinic had dogs barking. The Wi-Fi is spotty the farther you get from the office, but does work. The sites along the creek are back in but roomy which is nice if you are staying long term. Not much grass and a lot of weeds. It could be pretty muddy with lots of rain. Some gravel on the site and the site was fairly level side to side but off friont to back. The manager is friendly and accommodating. The laundry was pretty dirty the one time we used it, and after that we went to town. The water is not good due to sulfur smell and being hard. We used water from the machine in City Market. I would stay here again but not for a month. The reason we were here this time was the other park we wanted to be at was full for the time we wanted to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Previous reviews say it quite well. No frills. Close to road. Good for overnight stop. Sort of gravel pull through site. Close spacing, especially with slides. Neighbor friendly. Rate reflects Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Managers are very personable, this is a no-frills park, perfect for our 2 day stay, and you can use the coupon out of the Pagosa Springs Visitors Guide, you get 1 night free with the purchase of 1 night--a real deal! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Passport America & their weekly rate. Stayed 14 days. Had family reunion. Also had site next to us. So we had our dining and meeting space between the 2 5th wheels. Park is next to highway, so some noise. Roads are paved with unlevel, gravel sites. Power, water (smells of sulfur -the springs), Wi-Fi (S L O W), and cell (AT&T) good. No TV, but you can get Direct TV for a fee. We had a nice stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport America rate. Park is next to highway, so noise all day. Roads are paved with unlevel gravel sites. Power, water, Wi-Fi, and cell (AT&T) good. OK for overnight/short stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Did not honour Passport America rate despite no restriction in PA listing. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Managers were very friendly. WiFi was patchy. Only had two local TV channels and one of them was very grainy. The site we were allocated, had the next site's pick-up parked in it, and the owner had gone away with friends for the day. Trash dumper open and overflowing right in front of the line of campers. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park. NO frills, a good value for the price, we used Passport rate. It is about 5 miles West of Pagosa, but in summer, the in town parks fill up fast and are high dollar. Management is friendly and helpful. WiFi was OK. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV park has nice asphalt driveways and the newly remodeled creek sites are very nice and spacious. We thought the staff was very friendly and the bathrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. The WI-Fi worked great. We suggest staying at this RV park. They have the best rates intown. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed as Passport America at $12 a night. We were here for 3 nights. The sites are not very level and dirt and side by side so not roomy. Stay in #1 if possible as that way you are not crowded and looking at your neighbor's door. It is ok for a short stay and an ok RV park but not great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Creek on property. Wooded grassy setting. Fire rings, picnic tables, tent sites. Coin laundry. Horses welcome, horse corrals and pasture available. This is a basic campground with few amenities and is average in upkeep. There appears to be a large number of permanent residents but their spaces are well kept. Next to highway but not particularly noisy. Owners run business from home--no office. A little pricey for a small mom & pop park, but it's in a heavy tourist area. Park is about 8 miles west of Pagosa Springs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a GREAT location. "ON" a pond or the San Juan River. Most of the sites are on the water. Older, well established trees all around. Very nice people with an escort to your site. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We will next time! I have to rate this a 10 only because there isn't an "11." Good lineup of cable channels and Wi-Fi worked fast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the second RV park we used in Pagosa Springs. This is a very nice, older park. It is very quiet. There are sites right on the river. The park is full of large shade trees. There is wireless internet and cable. This is also a good park for dogs. There is a lot of area to walk the dogs. There is also a lake for fishing. The park is a short distance (10 minutes) from downtown Pagosa Springs. Good value for the money and we would certainly return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The positive aspects of this campground are that the staff is helpful and friendly, it is on the San Juan River, and convenient to Pagosa Springs. The campground has an assortment of tent sites intermixed with the RV sites, and the layout is strange and the sites are poorly defined. That being said, the prime sites are on the river, although they are very close together. It was quiet and they have a nice little lake with a path around it. Our Verizon service was a little weak but we did have a signal. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate $40.46 for 4 adults included Good Sam discount. Campsite 16 was a little small for 30ft travel trailer. Pull through sites near the river looked better. First campground where they got my reservation wrong, but luckily I called about a week before we got here and got the dates I needed. My main concern about staying here again is the lack of amps. At times there was not enough power to safely run the AC. Good location to town and clean restrooms. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is the most mismanaged and poorly maintained campground I ever had the displeasure of staying at. The young couple who manages it needs to find an occupation they are more suited for. Terrible attitude!! The wifi was intermittent at best, the swimming pool was laughable, and the fish in the adjoining pond were non-existent! The only good thing I can say is the work campers were kind and courtesy but even they left because of their displeasure with the way things were run! Save your money and find a campground that really is properly run! Safe travels! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the first time we stayed here and we stayed for 3 weeks. We were in site #77 (pull through), and it was perfect. Beautiful view of the river, where my husband fished for trout. We could sit in our chairs right outside our RV and enjoy the peace and tranquility the scenery offered. This is a very clean campground with a very friendly staff. The only reason I didn't give it a 10, is because the Wi-Fi was iffy at best. It worked most of the time on our laptop, but for my Kindle I had to go sit by the office to connect. Not really a big deal. I definitely recommend Pagosa Riverside. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little campground about two miles north of town on the river and with a pond. Lots of trees for shade. Has a laundry that's open 24 h0urs. The bathroom (men's) is old but clean, and I must say the showers are small. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Great location on the river and close to town. Park staff were very friendly and helpful. This is one of the best maintained and run parks we've ever seen. We'll definitely stay here again when we return to the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice sites, many water view and shaded with trees. About 5 minutes from town. Quiet and well ran. Staff was helpful with an escort to site after hours. Campground Wi-Fi was very weak, usable sometimes depending location I guess. Cell reception (Verizon) and air card worked but had low bars. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is the best one in the area, mainly because of its location on the river and in town. Most of the park has been upgraded to 50 amp. We enjoy the ability to have campfires and to wade and fish the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This appears to be a former KOA with its A-frame office. It is an older park, but the camp is clean as are the restrooms. There are some spaces on the river, but be aware some of the best riverside sites are non-hookup. One negative is some electric sites are only 20 amp. We didn't need A/C so it wasn't a big deal. They do have some 30 amp sites. Also, if you you expect a resort, this isn't it. We enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Second time staying here. Last time was in 2007. Stayed 5 nights this time. Excellent park if you are looking for a family friendly setting. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Close to town and all the attractions in Pagosa Springs. We love this area and will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our third stay at Pagosa Riverside. It is convenient to town and the people are friendly and business-like. The road noise is barely audible especially if you are camped on or near the river. I highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an "I am going camping" RV park with lots of kids, dogs and campfires. They now have good 50-amp service and run by very nice managers. There are more tent sites than RV sites. Wi-Fi did not work while we were here, but they were working on it. Very quiet and no night-lights to distract from the sky. Easy 5-minute town access. Some messy, junky areas but overall not too bad. Sites right on the river but not very picturesque. Very nice river sounds. Not good value for the price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful riverside location away from highway noise with a very friendly, helpful staff. We stayed one night, but next time it will be longer. The river, private lake, trails, mountain scenery, level sites, clean facilities, who could ask for more? We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We will stay here again. We had a nice spot next to the river. It was awesome. The laundry room was clean and attended at all times. The management was very friendly and helpful. Its worth a stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an old park with only 30 amp service, which is sometimes erratic. There are tables, but all grass and gravel parking and patio area. However, because of its location right on San Juan River and the wonderful people who manage the park who freely offer help for your needs, we have camped there for three years, a month long each time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older park but well cared for: kind of liked the rustic feel. Site configuration not the best but the location to the river IS the best in town. Very convenient to town, restaurants, etc. Excellent value for the money: most friendly staff! Big rig park close by wants twice as much per night and it is located right on the busy road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an old KOA, probably from the 1960's. There was very low voltage in the sites by the river. There are some good sites in the other areas so tour first, then get a site. The owner died in Feb. '10 so the status next year may change. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Kind of tough to get into. Old campground. Needs to be updated badly. Too many "stored" RV's on site. Not all sites have 30amp service. Beautiful riverside sites though. Kind of cramped together. Quiet for sure, and LOTS of water pressure in the showers and plenty HOT too! Would stay again as this is the best in Pagosa (except for a pricey, class A only campground there.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
The pull-through sites here are gravel and most are fairly level. The sites with a lake/river view are better than 1-4. Satellite reception can be difficult depending on site, but they do have cable TV. We found the folks that run the park to be very nice and helpful. You're escorted to your site. Laundry room is spotless. Location is nice and peaceful and only a few miles from town. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is conveniently located to town; however, it is the most discombobulated layout I've ever encountered. Sites 1-4, where we were, are such that you can only leave with the cooperation of your neighbors. Each morning there was the pick-up shuffle. I don't think I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice little park. We had a spot by the river with water, electric, no sewer, which is okay for a couple of days. Satellite worked great and Wi-Fi was pretty good. Kind of slow at times. We'd come back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I realize that we all have different expectations when going to a campground, but I really don't understand the very high ratings for this campground. It appears to be a very old KOA. Roads/sites are gravel/dirt. There was a little rain this afternoon and while not a muddy mess, there were some muddy holes in the streets. I did not inspect the restrooms, but for the tent area, there were porta-potties. This campground is fine for a night or two while visiting the area, and we would stay again, unless we found something better. It got us off the road, and that was the object! We camped here in a Motorhome.
On a mountain stream with a snow-covered mountain in the background. Sites have limited shade. Staff and owners very friendly with a true small-town atmosphere. We stopped due to mechanical problems and would stop again. No fellowship hall or activities. This is just before (or after) Wolf Creek pass. Sites are gravel with some grass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The folks who run this campground are the best. They are very personable and helpful. The campground is clean and well kept. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone who is in the Pagosa Springs area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is right on the San Juan River just east of town. It has FHU, cable, and WI-FI but the pool is above ground surrounded by a deck. Pool looked nice but incoming storms prevented us from using it. We got heavy rain for about an hour but the park did not turn into the muddy mess previously described. There are quite a few seasonal sites, but the overnight sites are adequate. Don't expect cement pads or patios with well manicured lawns, flower gardens, etc. There is also a small paddle boat pond on site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has a lot of potential but has been allow to deuterate. The sites could use work and the whole area needs to be cleaned up. It rained while we were there and the campground became a sea of mud. The people seem to be very nice and helpful. This could be a very nice campground if some work was put into it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an older park but has a great location, if you get one of the pull-thru sites that front the river. We had excellent service from the staff and although the parking was a bit confusing we had little trouble parking our large 5th wheel. Not all of the 50 amp sites had sewer connections so be sure and check before arriving. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pagosa River Campground in Pagosa Springs, CO came to our rescue when we were "kicked out" of the Alpen Rose RV Park in Durango, CO. Please see our comments about that under the Alpen Rose review. While some of the sites are better than others, the management worked with us on short notice and provided us with a nice spot. There are many sites on the river and we could have moved there, but chose to stay where we were at until we could go back to the Durango, CO area. The staff was extremely informative about various hikes and jeep trails that we were interested. We understand that the campground has been sold and is under contract and it is unclear whether it will be available next summer. We hope so as we plan to stay there again if possible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here in August 2005 and had a good experience. Restrooms were clean and staff friendly. However if you are expecting a "resort", you will be disappointed. There are very nice riverfront sites and pond sites. Good fishing in the river. There are a few seasonal people here, but not many. The minuses are there are RV's stored in the middle of the camp. Also, the playground and pool aren't that great. Overall we were happy with our experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent one night here based on the very high ratings in the TL and Woodall guides. Employees were nice enough, but the campground was a dump. The pull thru site we were assigned was poorly designed and difficult to access with a fifth wheel. There were full timers right in the middle of the campground with unsightly junk and clothes lines. The advertised pool was one of those round, four foot, above ground backyard models. There were several old broken down cars and several old rusty trailers stored in the middle of the campgground. In spite of the negative points, there were a few nice sites located on the San Juan River. This place definitely didn't deserve the ratings. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There were a lot of full timers in the park and their sites were not well kept. There seemed to be an excess of rusted equipment and vehicles in the park. The garbage cans were not emptied on a regular basis. We had booked several sites for a family reunion requesting that all the sites be together. This was not the case when we checked in. The owners were not very friendly to the younger members of our group. The swimming pools temperature was colder than the rivers running through the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This appears to have been an older K.O.A., but has been very well cared for. Some sites
are within 15 feet of the San Juan river, and others border the small private lake with paddle boats for rent. The staff was very friendly, as were the other guests. The park is very clean and quiet with no road noise or barking animals. There are plenty of sites with full or partial shade, all have fire rings as well as picnic tables. We have stayed here twice, and will go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very small park that is right behind a hotel. The best thing about this park is it is within walking distance of town. It was okay for a few nights. I would not recommend it for more than a few nights. The property does have a heated pool (93 degrees), a hot tub (109 degrees) and a women's and men (clothing optional) bath house with 114 degree pool. You can walk across the street to the Springs soaking tubs ($30 approx.). The front desk people were friendly. There are other RV parks around Pagosa Springs that are better than this one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for the convenience of walking to town. It also was surprisingly quiet here. Otherwise this is just a handful of sites behind a run-down motel/spa. The owner was actually staying in a 5th wheel on the end and had 2 aggressive dogs running loose that almost bit my wife. There was also dog waste everywhere near his site. I guess the rules don't apply to him? We camped here in a Motorhome.
We paid the $250 weekly rate. The regular daily rate is $42. This is a small 1960s-type motel with 8 fairly tight RV parking spaces of which 1 or 2 are 50 amp service. Spaces A and B are better suited for big rigs; however, we squeezed into Space F (30amp) with our 40-footer. The 8 RV parking spaces are within walking distance to downtown Pagosa Springs. WiFi and Cable TV are included in rate. There is no charge to use the warmish mineral water swimming pool, outside co-ed mineral water hot tub and separate men and women indoor hot baths. If you would like a more modern spa environment, walk across the street to The Springs Resort. They have 18 pools with various temperatures; $20 per person one-time-in visit, $43 per person all day admission (unlimited in and out), or a $108 weekly rate for two adults. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When I pulled in I found the sites were too close together and I could not park the 31-foot RV into any space (total length 46 feet with truck). So, when I asked for a refund, because I could not stay, they told me they would credit my credit card, but to my dismay they never did. I then sent them e-mails and the e-mails were ignored. I sent postal letters and those too were ignored. I then had to file a formal dispute with my bank credit card to get them to send the refund. It was a frustrating experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Only draw back is its 18 miles North of town. Very nice everyone was friendly including the folks we parked next to and across from. No TV but who cares. Internet was excellent. Didn't have any bars on my phone but it worked. I don't know that I would come here for a one nighter but sure as the sun sets in the West would come there and spend weeks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a wonderful time at this very kid friendly park. We did not have kids but enjoyed seeing them at play. The kids and dogs were all well mannered. The Wi-Fi was outstanding! Good water. The staff was very friendly. We rode the horses that are available and the outfitter was extremely safety aware, but still made the ride fun. Only negative is that is a little hard to get into space 9. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We managed to be here in between hunting seasons, so it wasn't too busy. The setting is 18 miles north of Pagosa Springs, and we found this much nicer than the couple of campgrounds we've stayed at in town. There is a little store but you'll need to do most of your shopping at the City Market in Pagosa. The staff at the campground was very friendly and helpful. They have set up Wi-Fi with a couple of repeaters so that internet is available all over the campground. Showers and toilets are state of the art "green" to save on the precious water resource in the area. Camp sites as well as roads are gravel. Our site was close to being level, but we had to raise one wheel about an inch. There is a nice lodge open to everyone, with books and games, including a nice pool table (no charger). The road to the campground is dirt the last 11 miles. The county keeps it in very good shape for a dirt road, in fact, it was in better shape than the paved road closer to town. But, it rained all night before we departed, and the road back to town was pretty messy. We had to stop at a car wash and hit the camper with high pressure to knock 2-3 inches of mud off the front and sides. My only complaint here was a bit of noise. My wife and I are very picky about that. A couple of nights, a dog (perhaps the owners, but I'm not sure) barked off and on all night. The staff told me it was probably the owner's dog, but he only barks when there is a bear or elk around. Well, maybe that happens pretty often. Crazy Horse Outfitters is at the campground, and one of their workers liked to have the radio going all day while working outside. That wasn't really bad since we were out doing other things most days, but it's a consideration if that kind of thing bothers you. All in all, I would certainly recommend this campground if you want to stay near Pagosa Springs. The access to Williams Reservoir and the Weminuche Wilderness is great from this location. We'll probably go back! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed for a week in this great national forest campground. It is a solid 20 miles north of Pagosa Springs, the first 10 is very bumpy on pavement. Once you leave the pavement it is much easier traveling. If you love being out of touch, but close enough to town you will love this campground. Sportsman campground about halfway had a great store and helpful info on local fishing hotspots. This is a dry camp situation with potable water in site. The camp host was awesome and took great care of the camp and open pit toilets. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this park! This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. Staying here is like having a country home. There are horses, chickens, turkeys, dogs and Buddy, the goat. The owners are very accommodating and did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable. The park is right on the Blanco river, nestled in a small valley. Very relaxing and the prices are reasonable. We stayed here for almost two weeks. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is family friendly RV park with plenty of things for children and adults. The showers are worth the coming for. There is a community fire pit, with firewood available, horseshoes, fishing in the Blanco river, and best of all it is quiet. If you are looking for bright lights and lots of activity, don't come here. If you are looking for quiet, blue skies, stars at night, and friendly people, this is your place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed for one week. The site we had looked at the mountains and a river. Picture perfect. The park is smaller compared to others, but perfect to achieve the feeling of a Bed and Breakfast park. Every morning the owners offered a breakfast spread, every afternoon they offered a meet and greet, and every couple of days the offered a dinner. We felt like we were at home. Fresh baked cookies on the counter were just another warm extra to this park. The spa was in a perfect location to view the surrounding area, and it was always hot and clean. The wi-fi worked perfectly. The office, kitchen area, pool table room, dinner lodge, and the super large balcony were out a designer's magazine. Picture perfect. Are you getting the idea that we will back? Say yes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The correct name of this park is Wolf Creek Run Motorcoach Resort. The rate reflects a weekly rate, including taxes, at a non-riverfront site. Riverfront sites are $10/day more. As others have said, what's not to like about this park. Beautiful sites with a cabana-style storage building on each site and a carefully tended lush lawn. Kids are welcome but there are no facilities (pool, playground, etc.) for them other than the San Juan river which is eminently wadeable. Plenty to do however, in Pagosa Springs. At first blush, we thought the rate was high, but after spending a week there, we think it's worth it. The owners offer a hefty daily continental breakfast with a special Sunday sausage, spam and pancake breakfast; social hours three days a week; potluck dinner with excellent entertainment once a week: all at no additional cost. The clubhouse is beautiful, overlooking the San Juan river. There are no add-on costs to the daily rate when you stay here. The ambience of this place is congenial, relaxed and friendly. Though the cost is higher than we generally pay, we were not disappointed and we're glad we splurged. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A true first class motor coach resort. Manicured landscaping, mature Christmas trees throughout, nice grass, excellent utilities, concrete roads, beautiful log club house, huge deck, jacuzzi, on and on and on, plus very cordial owner/host. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been RV's for over 30 years and this motor home park is the "Best of the Best." Sites are large, well designed and accommodate rigs of all sizes. The greatest asset of Wolf Creek is its owners, who run a hands on operation. Wolf Creek Run is a must stay if you are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners of this park are hands on. They paint, plant shrubs, clean, you name it. Friendly beyond words. This is our favorite park in almost 2 years of fulltiming. The deck on the back of the lobby is huge. I would guess there is seating for almost 70 people and lots more space for standing. Hot tub, laundry, and showers were immaculate. They had 2 dinners in our 7 day stay. They supplied fish, tater tots and coleslaw along with desert for one dinner. They supplied pasta, garlic bread, and desert for another. We were asked to bring a drink and side dish. This resort makes you feel like your home with friends. Thanks for a great week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A relaxing resort, with lots of activities, continental breakfast every day, afternoon socials, pot luck dinners, music on deck that is on San Juan River, 2 fire pit areas and easy river access. Every site has a view with 8x10 storage with covered patio and the resort is all concrete. Very dog friendly! A must visit Class A Resort and what a friendly town Pagosa Springs is, hot springs, golf, sight seeing, shopping and dining wonderful!Stay 6 nights, 7th FREE! We camped here in a Motorhome.
All of the other posts are correct. This place is the best place we have stayed in our 2 1/2 years of camping with our motorhome. Owners were involved in every aspect of the property, and it shows. From the landscaping to the Spaces, and the Lodge, everything was first class. Howdy-Hi get-together most every night, to get to know your neighbors, pot luck diners on Thursday, pancake feed on Saturday. It was like being at a 5-Star resort. We will return, time and time again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love this park! The owners manage the park, and from check-in to check out were available to help with any requests, in a friendly and congenial manner. It's a small park, so it's easy to get acquainted with fellow campers. The club house is beautiful, with a deck overlooking the river and mountains. Each site has an outside storage building and a covered sitting area. We stayed for 6 nights and will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful, quiet park! Lovely river views, extremely clean facilities, large deck area overlooking river. Staff is wonderful, very friendly and helpful! Nice level concrete pads for motorhomes, each site has it's own storage cabin. Will definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We planned to stay three nights and ended up staying 5. The new owners are excellent and most helpful. We travel all over the country in our class a and I don't believe we have been anywhere where we felt more welcome with helpful advice of what to do, where to eat, etc. We are bringing our family back here next month. Park is wonderful, well located with lots to do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just spent 10 days at this wonderful RV resort situated right on the San Juan River. Sites are spacious and well landscaped. In addition, each pad has an attractive storage unit which also provides a pleasant, shaded patio area with table and chairs. Wide streets make for easy maneuvering to your concrete pad. Pagosa Springs has lots of things to do, white water rafting, wonderful hot springs, hiking, fishing, shopping and much more. But the friendly staff/owners really make this RV resort a special place to stay. They are very helpful and attentive to your needs. The large mountain cabin clubhouse provides a friendly meeting place for a light breakfast snack, happy hour and special get-togethers. If you are looking for a great setting, friendly people and attentive owners, this is the place for you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
NIce park with all the great things. This is one of the few really class A rig parks. This compares with Naples, Palm Desert and Las Vegas class A only parks. The rate was discounted for the month of May. They are booked for the summer at $60. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy in and out of this beautiful motorcoach resort. We were amazed at how clean everything was here. The large sites were great and we stayed 3 nights on both sides of the resort. Road noise was not noticable. The sounds of the river at night was wonderful. Everyone at the resort was very friendly and nice. Pets are welcomed at this resort.The recreation room, main office and storage sheds are log cabin style. The Hot Tub is on the huge deck over looking the river, by the way is very nice for get togethers and resort events. The riverside gazebo and fire pit are other great amenities of this resort. WiFi was very fast. This resort needs better laundry faculties but other then that is was perfect! We will tell our Rving friends to come here and we have already made our 2011 reservations!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are nice wide concrete pads with grass areas here. The price is high for the amenities. They no longer have showers and the spa is out of commission. The central fountain was not working. There is also highway traffic noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a lovely motorhome park, but very expensive for what is here. There is a hot tub which is not working but no pool. There is a large game room with the bathrooms and showers off to one side. Laundry is one washing machine and one dryer so we had to go to a laundromat. The grounds are spotless and everything was very clean. The personnel were very friendly. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a big rig park catering to coaches. There were one or two gas Class A type vehicles staying while we were there. This park is exceptionally well laid out. There is a wide concrete drive throughout the park and very wide 40' by 60' concrete pad campsites that are very level. There sites are very well laid out with a private storage building at each site that looks like a log cabin. There is also a covered area attached to the front of each building with a nice table and benches to sit on. The riverfront sites are nice and far enough from the highway that road noise is not an issue. The park is well landscaped and very high class. Although there is no playground for the kids my four children seemed to have a great time here. There are some wonderful amenities at the park if you plan in advance. The park host needs advance notice if you want to have campfire so that they may follow city ordinance and notify the fire department. If you would like to have a fire they have two fire areas available, one down by a nice covered picnic area by the river. The park even supplies wood for this purpose. There is also a very nice patio on the rear of the park office that overlooks the river This is a huge deck that includes an exceptional layout of deck furniture, swings, a bar, and a large stainless grill and cooking area that may be reserved ahead of time for you and your friends to use. Attached to this area is an indoor common area with checkers and a few other simple games along with a television and some workout equipment. The workout equipment includes a mat, step, treadmill, health rider and an ab machine. This area is also available by reservation. I don't believe that they charge anything extra for the use of these amenities. The park could be considered expensive at $74 with tax per night. But every seventh night is free and the amenities at this park are well worth it. On top of these amenities you will also find that the park is only about 1/2 mile from Pagosa Springs Downtown. The Fireside Cabins next door are owned by the same family and are very nice as well. We will definitely visit this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park on highway so you can hear road noise. A bit pricey for this park since there are no amenities. Good thing all cement since it rains a lot. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very friendly atmosphere. The area is very clean and well maintained. The drive and sites are all concrete with easy setup. The lower sites have 10x10 utility buildings on each site to store anything from chairs, bikes and even motorcycles. Has a fire ring next to river and a outside fire place set up for a location to gather and fellowship with other RVers. Even the wood is provided next to the area for easy access. Would well recommend a stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found the staff to be wonderfully friendly and helpful. The upper level sites have the best views. The lower level sites have the best access to the river. Everything is clean and well maintained. This was our second stay at Wolf Creek Run and we will do so again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Daily rates were $49 for topside, $59 for hillside and $69 for riverside. The topside sites, closest to the road, are separated from the other sites. No monthly rates are available; however, the weekly rate equals to 6 nights paid, 1 night free. This is a clean, modern park with an attractive lodge on the San Juan River. The park is nicely landscaped and perfectly maintained. There is some road noise during the day; very quiet during the night. A conveniently located shower, to rinse off after a dip in the hot tub, would be a nice touch. Currently, the shower is located inside the main area of the lodge. There are exceptions to the “Class A only” restriction. A beautiful large covered table with benches and a campfire site sit next to the river. The park was busy during the Labor Day weekend. The owners are gracious and personable. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only reason this park isn't a "10" is because there is no pool. Beautiful landscaping, huge cement pads and covered awnings with table and chairs, storage sheds at each site that you can lock up your bikes in. Nice clean hot tub, huge indoor and outdoor kitchens for groups. They also have a really nice large activity room with various games set up, two large big screen tvs. Very friendly owners on-site, and call you by name when they see you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I guess the rates went up since May. The riverfront sites were $69 per night and the sites backing up to the highway were $59. Seventh day is free. Excellent sites and utility hookups. Can wash both your toad and motorhome without recrimination. Campground seems to stay only about half full probably due to the high rate structure. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Signage coming from the east is not large and entrance is easy to miss. Good location for outdoor activities and only 2 miles to downtown Pagosa. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is one of our regular stops. The price is a little high, but we enjoy the location. The $47 a night spots are just below the highway and you get the road noise. The $57 spots back up to the river and you get a great view. The entire park has wide concrete pads and is landscaped very nicely. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a very easy 10. It is also a class A restricted park. The staff is first rate and the park is very nicely maintained. The club house has the best deck that I have ever seen (with hot tub) which looks up the San Juan river. Each lot has a storage building with a long overhang for shade with table and chairs. The only draw back is the price which keeps the park about 2/3 vacant. We paid $75 a night on the river, which is about half the sites. Very big rig friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rude, doesn't say it all for how we were treated here. Because we only own a C class motorhome we were made to feel like some second class citizen in this establishment. They could not even supply any bathrooms. Some licensing problem from what the locals told me. Regardless of the river being within seeing and listening distance you are not on the river. Also, this place is only a big concrete pad with a fake waterfall in the center of it. It has no natural beauty other than whats around it. Look around this area there are several other options to this overpriced driveway that is literally on the highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
