Wonderful campground in rural, wooded location bordering the Dolores River. Level gravel RV sites around common areas with nice grassy areas and plantings. Good water pressure, good utility connections. Extremely friendly and accommodating young family owners. Verizon signal is weak and campground Wi-Fi suffered a glitch but repairs were underway. Rate reflects weekly stay. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

We stopped for one night and ended up staying for 2 months. We are full-timers and camped here in a 40' motorhome. The park is a wonderful example of a private park, and owners, that care about their customers. All of the campsites had mature shade trees of one form or other. The interior roads and pads were crushed gravel; interior roads were easy to navigate around on. The pads we stayed on were level. Electric and water were strong; Our nightly rate of $20/night reflects a monthly rate. Individual nightly rate was $37/night. They have a catch and release fishing pond and the campground is located on the Dolores River, so you can fly fish in the river, as well. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area, including "Jeeping" the many national forest roads in the area at up to 12,500' elevation, towns of Durango, Ouray and Telluride. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place, great owners! The park was neat as a pin, clean as a whistle. Cable TV worked great, WiFi was outstanding. Free coffee and conversation in the office every morning. Very convenient to Telluride, 4 Corners, etc. Very dog friendly! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back! We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

A hidden jewel. New owners working very hard and making many improvements. There is a water issue that is the only thing keeping it from being a ten, and it is being addressed. Six states, a dozen RV parks over four months and this is our favorite. Will definitely return. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent WiFi. Many of the sites are tight and we could shake hands with our neighbors. Some roads are tree lined with vehicles extending in the road making parking a big rig difficult. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

New owners have turned this park around. They are very friendly and ready to help you. They have open spaces for satellite to work and smoking 6 Mbps Wi-Fi. Large level pull-throughs. I definitely recommend this park. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I didn't find this park in any directories, just happened to drive by it and pulled in. What luck! A beautiful spot on the Dolores River. The tent sites are on the river. We got a spot on their large fishing pond that comes off the river. Lots of large, mature shade trees, grassy common area with horseshoes and firepit, grass at camp sites, cable TV worked great, got to watch Game 7 of the NBA finals, Wi Fi works great, Sprint too. There are showers, and a laundry room, and large rec room. Lots of long term RVers. I can understand why; it's a perfect spot. We decided to stay a 2nd night and check out the town of Dolores, 2 miles down the road. Will definitely stay here again. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

A young couple took over last week and seem to be hard working and enthusiastic. There are lots of shade trees, everything seems clean and neat. There are a lot of people that stay for the whole summer. Good fishing nearby. We plan on a longer stay the next time we visit. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

There is a younger couple managing this campground who are in the process of buying it. They were very friendly, and suggested one of their nicest sites for us to stay in. What a beautiful place! Lots of trees, a river, and a large fishing pond. Our sire was mostly level, only a slight adjustment. I walked the dog around the entire park and I think every site there is nice. Of course the ones that next to the lake and river are the most desirable, but how can you go wrong here? Lots of water and shady trees. Pet friendly. Courteous, friendly, and helpful hosts. We'll be back for sure! We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Contrary to the previous review of June 2012, we found the management of this campground to be sorely lacking. The owner is an absentee owner most of the time. There are too many "work campers" who are here taking advantage of the "system." The campground is for sale, so maybe if an on site owner were to come on board and "clean house," so to speak, that problem would be resolved. The campground in itself has the potential to be a real jewel. It is conveniently located near shopping, golf, fishing, etc. which keeps it as popular as it is. Also, there are many shaded sites, which is nice in the summer months as it does get pretty warm during the day in this part of Colorado in the summer months. The campground could use some updating of the water system also. The water often comes out brownish from the faucet, so use bottled water for drinking, making coffee, etc. Also, the water pressure gets very low at times: don't know why. Anyway, if the place were to sell, and positive changes were made in the above areas, this would be a definite "10." We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very well managed campground. That was obvious upon entering. Clean and neat. Management was definitely 'on top' of the situation! Lot's of regulars who were friendly. Some complained about Wi-Fi but we had no problem. Hook-ups were in the proper place and worked well. A small and quaint town with good restaurants and weeks of sightseeing available. Somewhat unique grocery store with all the basics plus a lot more. Major shopping was about 15 miles away. Town is quiet after 8pm. Don't see how you could go wrong here. We loved it and will return if possible. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice RV park, well maintained and all of the facilities were spotless. Parks Wi-Fi was strong. Our Verizon cell and MiFi service was iffy. Propane is available at a reasonable price and located in an easy access area. Water, electric, and sewer worked well. Very nice staff and the campers there were friendly. Owners really care about their customers and are eager to please. Trees along the pond area blocked our dome satellite so we used our portable dish. We have stayed here twice and would return again in a heart beat. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

As others have mentioned the park is clean and the people that run this place are friendly, as were the other campers. It's nice to be near the Dolores river and the location to town. Now here is why I gave it a lower rating. The water pressure was very low sometimes below 30 PSI, and I went and checked other sites that were vacant and the pressure was the same. At the time we were here the TV was horrible as well as the Wi-Fi. Near the southwest part of the CG, right behind site 11, there is a sewage treatment facility. When the breeze was right you could detect a sewer smell as well as the noise from the pumps. But all in all, we would stay here again if in this area. We just know what to expect. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
