21 Parks near Bayfield, Colorado
Jul 2016 - $43.00
Gravel roads, gravel pads, blotchy grass, very dusty from vehicles, near highway, lots of road construction workers, many junky RV's. 1 trash container for entire park (overflowing). Picnic table next to neighbors sewer connection! Bayfield has little to offer... - AZ Maximus

This is indeed a wonderful RV Park. The grounds are immaculate with freshly planted flowers and grass patches to give it that homey feeling. The creek has a swimming hole and fishing open to everyone. They escort you to your site and the staff is constantly circulating the grounds to make sure all is well. I had a low tire and the owner quickly got out his high pressure air pump to get it back up to operating pressure. The sites are roomy with a convenient grouping of the utilities in the rear. Close enough to Durango to take in all there is to do there as well. - Good Vibes

A beautiful and well maintained private RV Park! The rate was fair and the people serving the campers were all delightful. We will most definitely stay here again when we are in this area.
The grounds are beautiful with a stream running through the facility...fishing in a private pond...everything you see on their website it true and you will get what you expect! - vbridges

We have camped here on two different occasions and definitely will camp here again. The park is well maintained, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Most of the sites are shady and several have great views of the lake. It is a great place for family gatherings as they have RV sites, tent sites and cabins. The restrooms and showers are are clean but there is a charge for the showers. Through no fault of the park the WiFi was down (provider outage) and there is a small fee if you want to use it. This park is a little remote so cell phone coverage for Verizon was a little spotty. The lake provides really great fishing. Early in the season it is high enough to use their boat dock and they have boats for rent. Later in the season the water is really low but fishing from the shore provides really ice rainbow trout. - Rsothen

This is a very rustic campground, kind of like a National Forest Service campground except without the dust but with the nice addition of having full hookups and lots of trees. They’ve done a good job of graveling the roads to keep the dust down. The lake and river were extremely high making fishing along the lakes shore difficult unless you have a lake site. We were told when driving to the park NOT to go over the dam, that the south entrance to the park was difficult. We came in on the 501 going along the western side of the lake, and it was a very good dirt road, hard packed and not rutted. Later in the week we drove our jeep out through the south entrance of the park, and it was very rocky, steep, and rutted. The inside of our motor home would have looked like a tossed salad. If towing a car, you may want to unhook after coming off the main dirt road because that’s when it gets dusty coming down the last section of the hill. Our car looked like a sugar cookie. We were informed that no one is allowed to use their AC, luckily it wasn’t hot, and there was always a breeze coming off the lake so it didn’t matter. Also, ask them where the electrical box is located. You may need an extension cord since some of the boxes are located on the opposite side of where your power connects to your RV. No problems with the voltage, water (used our regulator), and sewer worked well. Our site (27) was level, and we were able to get our dome satellite in. Verizon cell and Mi-fi wouldn’t come in, even using our antenna and signal booster. Verizon will work along the west side of the lake. The parks wi-fi was very weak at our site, and I had to go to the pavilion to get a good signal. If I could change one thing about the park it would be wi-fi throughout the park. It really was a pain after a while having to tote my laptop up to the pavilion every day. While here the campground was never full. I can imagine it would feel cramped if it was full since there are a lot of sites. This was a really nice relaxing spot, and we never saw one mosquito. We would enjoy staying here again. Nice staff and a lot of happy campers. - jannie5

This is a very nice campground situated on the banks of Lake Vallecito and intersecting with the Pine River. We booked a year in advance following last year's visit. This trip we were a little disappointed because the wild flowers and awesome landscaping had declined. Also, there were deep ruts in the roads and at some camp sites with standing stagnant water. It is still a beautiful park, but dropped from a 10 rating to an 8. It is very remote, quiet, but that also means it is a long drive to get any supplies or visit the nearest town. - User1479

Lots of trees, very quiet. Near Durango and San Juan Nat'l Forest. - Sam P

This is such a friendly park. We just finished our third summer there and made plans for next summer for 1 month. We have met some of the nicest people there. The owner, Dave, makes brick oven pizzas to order on Fridays which are fantastic.
It is like a one big family. Great weather, lots of trees and you are about 3 mins away from the lake and about 25 minutes away from Durango.
Only complaint is that the cable tv isn't that good. It maybe because of the mountains and channels are very limited.
They are adding a new laundry room.
There is a breakfast almost every Saturday which is very reasonable and there is all sorts of things to do at the campground. Bands come and play, pot luck dinners and they have a great area for kids to play. if you enjoy camping don't miss this campground, you will be delighted! - bruce g

We stayed here for a month. The park was very busy but we had a nice site in somewhat crowded conditions. There are a lot of seasonal park model residents. The people were extremely friendly and thee are a lot of activities like pot lucks, Saturday breakfast and other events. The access to the the beautiful lake, surrounding Colorado areas like a Durango, Silverton, and Ouray made this a great place to spend a summer month. Weather was beautiful. WiFi worked pretty good most of the time. Would definitely return and recommend a stay here. - Redbird One

The campground is neat, clean, spacious, and the camp host is very helpful. The park is full every night and there are only 24 sites, so reservations are wise. Trees are few and far between and as all sites face west, the afternoon sun shines in everyone's door. The bathrooms and showers are inside the casino indoor pool area and it gets very crowded during the day. The casino is friendly with good food and is next door to the Southern Ute Museum which is a good experience. We would stay here again. - Daiseydog
Jul 2016 - $30.00
This is a small park. It has all paved roads and sites. All sites have all hookups including 30 and 50 amp service. Campers have access to all casino features - pool, laundry, showers, restrooms. No TV, but good internet. Best part were the hosts - they took us to all the features we would use to make sure we knew where they were and how to access them. They were very hospitable and pleasant. - Scot671

Nice campground for exploring Durango area. Nice parking spots, table, grill, good power & water. Best layout and design I have seen in a long time. You also have access to casino and restaurants. Would highly recommend. - mlg2919

Great staff. Pleasant and helpful.
As a tent camper I could not have been happier. I asked for and got the spot closest to the store/showers. It was just about perfect with a nice pad for my tent and tarp. Showers and restroom were spotless with good water pressure.
The view from the west side of the campground is spectacular.
To top it all off, the apple pie and ice cream made the perfect end of day desert.
Excellent WiFi, but I was right next to the store.
If I am ever in the area again I will stay there. - Charlie 123

I liked this KOA. Our site 42 was long enough to stay hooked and level gravel. There are large boulders alongside the site as others mentioned but they weren't a problem. Sites are about 20 foot apart, a little close for my liking but normal for KOA. They have five 50A big rig pull thru sites, including the one I stayed in. Then they have 14 big rig suitable sites, some 30A and some 50A in another section with more shade. Smaller sites are spread around the hillside. They have cable TV if you can hook up to their free digital box -- I didn't need it since my satellite worked fine. Satellite will be hit & miss with the trees. The staff was friendly and they escorted you to your site, which is especially good since there's a honeycomb of roads. Their free wifi worked okay but I was pretty close to the main building too. My only real complaint here was the dust raised by patrons driving too fast on the gravel roads. ATT had a weak 3 bar 4G signal while Verizon struggled to get even 1 bar. - Danno

We had a patio site with table and chairs, fire pit and grill. Site was very nice and quiet and right across from a dog walk area which was perfect for our 3 dogs. Sites are gravel and pretty level. Not a huge site, but met our needs. Several KOA Kabins in the park. Located just on the outskirts of town. Entrance kind of creeps up on you with speeding traffic to contend with. Had a nice little vegetable and herb garden that everyone was invited to enjoy. Gave an excellent recommendation for a day dog boarding facility when we took the all day train ride to Silverton. - davis0056

Close to Vallecito Reservoir up against the National Forest at an elevation of close to 8,000 feet. Beautiful, Clean, and quiet campground. Forest type setting. Friendly staff. Good free park internet system. We camped in a Motorhome and would stay here again. - GaryK
Aug 2015 - $38.00
This a gem of a park. Its set in a beautiful pine forest with lots of granite features. The location is really nice as it is close to Vallecito lake but far enough away that you don't have to hear the traffic or have the congestion around it. The roads are gravel and are level. The sites are gravel with a concrete patio. They have a nice hall, office store and pavilion. There are concerts on Saturdays from local players and many events during the week. The workamping crew were very friendly and helpful. There are a few sites that are tight to get into. Check with the office when making a reservation on site details. - DVCard85

We found this park to be very beautiful and nice. It is set in a wooded area with many trees. The staff is excellent and area attractions are close by. Durango is 25 miles away and a very pretty drive. We are looking forward to our next trip up here in September 2015. - lapazjim

Fun place to stay. We travel in the summer with our teenage grandson and we select places of interest for him and us as well. The trains added an extra dimension as they pass thru in the morning and evening. It is close to a trolley stop for trips to town and is in a very shady cool place with lots of trees. Our grandson enjoyed the pool and of course running into town for dinner on a couple occasions. I would not hesitate to stay here again when in the area. We had no problem negotiating the roads which are gravel but watered daily to cut down on the dust. - k-n-r

Very excellent location. I didn't care for the alternate facing campground causing our patio area to be facing the neighbors patio area, with little privacy and sense of established border. - User3476
Sep 2015 - $43.00
This is our second stay at this campground. We returned because of the trolley just outside of the campground which takes us to town for 50 cents! Also, the train that travels through several times a day. Campers and train riders wave to each other...what fun! Sites are close but we were lucky enough to stay in site 58 for several days. Laundry was clean. Owners/workers were helpful and pleasant. The one thing that would make this campground perfect is if dogs were permitted to be walked across the tracks. - susie-q

.Well managed park. They meet you on arrival and take you to site before you register. Big rig area very nice. Smaller rigs are placed in amongst heavy tree cover. Doubt Sat. service there. Internet surprisingly good. Very knowledgeable about local attractions. Very pleasant helpful staff. - Freshtracks
Jun 2016 - $43.00
We booked a big rig site and paid the 53.00 deposit for it 3 months in advance and when we got there we were told they were full and they don't guarantee sites? Anyway we ended up in a 50 amp pull through site #73 that was barely long enough for our 40' Motorhome.
This may have actually been a blessing because you have to drive down a gravel road into the park that goes right by the front of the big rig sites and the dust clouds created by people entering and leaving the park blows right into the Big Rig sites. There is a fence on the other side that helps keep the dust down on the north side of the park where we were.
The sites other than the big rig sites are very tight as they are double sites that alternate facing on the hook up side so you are just feet apart.
The WIFI was non-existent. The cable TV was good. The roads were tight but manageable as long as you drove slow.
If they would just pave the road coming into the park it would make a big difference. The dust was unbearable.
The staff other than giving away our site was very pleasant and helpful.
There is also a good percentage of full time residents.
That said this is the best park in Durango. We looked at all the others and they were just gravel lots with hook ups.
Alpin Rose did have nice grass between the awning sides of the double sites. - HolyMackrelAndy

Easy to find about four miles north of Durango off 550. As we arrived a person came out in a golf cart and lead us to our site. He said get setup & then go and take care of the finish paying Our site was a pull thru 50 amp. No problem getting to any of their sites. Nice office with store. They had a pancake breakfast every morning for $8.50. Good Verizon service and their wi/fi was okay. Would stay there again. - Kempscamp

The first time we stayed at the fairgrounds we had to use a long cord for electric. It was a 50 amp site. The staff was great. The next time we stayed here we had a 30amp site and we were able to use a normal cord for electric. The staff was good to us the second time too. I have a self contained motorhome so I have my own restroom. The fairground is like a small dirt parking lot. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. I would stay here again for a short visit to explore Durango. The price was good. - Seize the Day RV Adventures

Six sites, all gravel so a bit dusty, located in Durango, so very convenient for us as we were there for visiting friends and attending the Cowboy Poetry gathering. Some sites have a long run for water/electric service. Great value compared to other parks in the area. - Bill Strong
Sep 2015 - $17.00
This campground is definitely not for everyone. There are no picnic tables, fire rings, WiFi, bathrooms or showers. It is just a flat piece of property within the La Plata Fair Grounds. The closes dump station is at Santa Rita Park.
There are a total of 6 sites located between the Arena and the maintenance building. The electrical boxes and water spigots are located at the back of the "odd" numbered sites (sites 1, 3, 5).
The "even" numbered sites share the electrical box and water spigot with the "odd" numbered sites. The "even" numbered sites will need a very long electrical cord to reach the utility box. To reach the water spigot we needed approximately 50 feet of hose. You will also have to provide your own water splitter.
The electrical box contains 20/30 amp service. The electrical voltage was very strong - hovering about 125 volts.
The entire lot is on packed dirt and gravel. It rained heavily over night but the ground absorbed the water.
The Animus bike path and the Park and Recreation building are next door. There is a trolley on Main Ave ($0.50 per ride) that will take you to downtown Durango. The Park and Recreation building has several types of pools, a fitness center, basketball, etc.
Verizon Air card and phone reception was good. The maintenance shop closes around 11:30 PM and opens around 6:30 AM. It was very quiet during our stay.
If you are looking a very basic campground that is very close to Durango, this is it.
We would come back to this campground if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

We love this smaller RV park. Staff perfectly accommodated our RV and motorcycle trailer, even helped me pull in so I fit. Nice grassy sites with shade trees and a healthy discount for the hot springs across the street. He took the time to explain the sights and make recommendations on what to see and do - concierge service! We will surely stay here again on our next visit. - MarkR

We had a great view of the mountains and the train but most sites did not. I could never get the WiFi to work. Bob was supper nice and wanted us to enjoy Durango and our stay. Good water pressure. Site was gravel with a grassy area for the picnic table. - BorntoCruise

Very clean park. Not very many long termers (2). Overall well cared for. When we had a vehicle problem, the manager went out of his way to help us get back on the road. Beautiful area. Some road noise, but the same at almost every other one in the area, enjoyed the train whistle! - 7 on the road
