Overall this a very nice campground right by the Delores River. Very nice courtyard with large fire pit for get togethers and very large clubhouse with kitchen also. The owners are a delight to deal with and will help you any way they can. Restrooms remodeled this year and are very nice and up to date. Some of the best I have seen. The camp store is well stocked with a lot of different items that would be of interest. Very family oriented campground. We were there over Labor Day weekend and the owners put on a pig roast with the guest bringing side dishes and it was excellent and is done every year. They also have people that come into the park once a week on different days for wood fired pizza and gyro type food and they are both excellent too. Depending on what part of the park you are in some of the sites are a little close together while others have plenty of room. The owners have a nine year old son that makes fire starters and sells them for twenty five cents each and they work really good. If there is one drawback to this park it is the water pressure which was very low but that may be due to the dry weather in the area this year. The owners live on site year round and maintain the park in excellent condition. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. This is the best park in the town of Delores. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Probably the nicest campground that we have stayed at. True pride of ownership. Great location on river and about an hours drive to Telluride. Nicest bathrooms anywhere, granate counters, spacious showers and the woodwork was a piece of art. Can't say enough good things about this place. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely tree covered park with nice, long pull-thrus and wide back-ins. Right on the Delores River. Staff was very nice and very helpful. Very quiet at night with some traffic noise during the day. Site 61 has sewer and water on the driver side of the rig. Power is on the other side, so had to take power cable under the rear end of the RV and hook up. Worked fine, but only had about 3 inches to spare. Office said they have extra cords if you need more length. Hard to clean out the sewer due to very low water pressure. Seemed to be good in the laundry room, so maybe it was just this site. Local Wi-Fi was good. I couldn't get my Verizon to work there. Pizza on Wednesday's, Ice Cream Sundaes on Saturday, and a lady comes in on Sunday night with homemade Gyros and Baklava that is wonderful. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Awesome campground. Friendly owners/workers go out of their way to provide peaceful camping experience. Water view sites worth the extra cost. Fire pits available for $5 for duration of your stay! Firewood for sale on site. Bathroom/shower immaculate! We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Groceries nearby in Dolores and Cortez. Take advantage of food trucks, brick oven pizza and ice cream night on-site. Such a neat idea and very good.

One of the prettiest campgrounds we have stayed in. Lots of shade! Some sites are along the river. Some are near one of the two large ponds on the property. Extremely clean & well maintained. Service was outstanding. Food trucks came into the park two nights of week for those wishing to partake. Ice cream social every week. Very nice, large clubhouse for cards/TV/games etc. A slab patio at each site. Hookups were fine. A bit buggy with flies and skeeters. 10 mile drive into town for goods & services. Poor internet whether using the campground's service or private Verizon. Poor phone reception as well. Library in Dolores as a good connection. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 11 days in late June/early July. Nice campground in a good location for sightseeing the area. Good WiFi except on weekends. We had a lot of shade and that was appreciated due to the heat! Owners and work campers are very pleasant. Weekly ice cream social and Wednesday Pizza Nights were terrific. Laundry facilities were great, $1.50 for washer/dryer that held 2 loads. The campground sponsored a 4th of July potluck and they supplied grilled burgers and hot dogs. Everyone enjoyed the potluck! The negative for us was the road noise. It starts early and lasts late. Other than the road noise, we enjoyed the park. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been repeat campers for years. The owners are the most dedicated devoted hosts we have ever experienced in all our years of staying at RV camps, parks, resorts in the USA! They will exceed your expectations! Every time we visit, there are always something newly renovated, recently the bathrooms. As I was doing laundry, a first time guest commented how she always wears shower shoes, but not here! Makes a profound statement! Plus Dolores is a perfect "Hub" where you can plan day trips to Telluride, Pagosa Springs, Durango, and more. Fishing and lakes nearby. Perfect RV spot! You must travel in the fall to see the fall foliage! Beautiful! If we had grandkids, we would have annual gatherings here for sure! We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed in 37 foot motor home for 14 nights. Access to site was good, with help backing in. Highway noise during the day, but very little at night. Cable TV reception good only in early a.m. and very late p.m. Internet (Wi-Fi) was decent except on weekends. Water pressure is low most of the time. Grounds and facilities kept clean and well maintained. Owners and staff very friendly and hard working. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice park about a mile outside of Dolores and right along the river. We had a very nice back in site right along the river. The park is well maintained and they appeared to be doing more work. I should note that they are currently working on the main bathrooms for the campground so they were not available. We would definitely stay again.

Mesa Verde NP is a must. Consider taking the bus tour offered at the visitor center, they do the driving and provide great information. The tour also includes the Mesa Verde cliff tour.

Very family orientated park. Owners are very friendly and helpful, made us feel at home. Very clean sites, remodeled bathrooms - beautiful! Our site was level and tucked under trees which helped with the sun-loading. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

Lots to see and do in the area. Not far from Mesa Verde NP, San Juan Forest, Telluride, or just hanging out on the Dolores River kayaking or fishing. McPhee Reservoir near by to do fishing and boating. Fun area to be in. Also near Trail of the Ancients and Hovenweep.

Great place to stay right on the Dolores River. The bathrooms have just been remodeled. The owners go out of their was to make your stay pleasant. We liked it so much that we made a reservation for a month next summer. The only negative is that they need to enforce the 5 MPH speed limit. People tend to pick up speed driving through the campground on their way to the cabin & tenting area. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.

We got in after hours and only stayed one night so didn't get to use any of the facilities but this appears to be a very nice and well-maintained park. The laundry room looked bright and modern and had a folding table, but no coin or vending machines. The restrooms also looked bright and clean. Our site was level and there was a picnic table on a cement patio. The hookups were at the rear of the site which might be inconvenient for some rigs. All the sites seemed to be of decent size. I could not get the wi-fi to work and I'm not sure they even have it, but since there was no one in the office to ask I can't say for sure. Verizon service was available but on the weak side. I would stay again. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Truck Camper.

Nice shaded gravel campground with concrete pad patio & table in a beautiful setting right off the road, Quiet town so traffic noise wasn't an issue. Great people that run the Camp & it has a nice camp store. There is a walking trail along the river with a bench or two to take in the scenery. Close to town (2 miles) for shopping & also the road that goes into Telluride which is a fantastic road & town in itself. I will be going back there again.

Great park. Friendly/helpful staff. Spacious sites with mature shade trees. Grassy area between sites. Nice playground for the kids. I did not use but nice size laundry room. Ice cream sundaes for $2 Saturday evening and other evenings a dinner is offered for a nominal charge. My only suggestion, better chairs for the river edge and maybe trim the grass. I would definetly return again. Good attractions in the area, Ex: Mesa Verde Nat'l Park. We camped at Dolores River Campground in a Motorhome.
