FHU, 50 amp, gravel, back-in site with mountain views. Really like this park. Is 2 miles from town on 550. Escort meets you and takes you to site with help backing in. Then you go to office to check in. Very efficient system. Cable has enough channels. WiFi worked most of the time. Would slow down at times. Verizon coverage good. Sites close together, but not too close. Had room to sit outside. Our site had room at rear to sit outside. There is a AYCE breakfast each morning for a fee. Didn't participate. They also have pizza. We would stay here again. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Everything worked well. Pool looked nice. Cable and wi fi were good. As always, when everyone gets on the internet, things bog down some. Roads and sites were level gravel. There had been some flooding previously, but the man who parked us said they had dumped 30 loads of gravel on the areas that flooded. However, the gravel was very loose and slid around when you drove or walked on it. Office staff super nice. Beautiful setting; some road noise if you were closer to the highway. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Fiesta Mexicana is nearby and has very good Mexican food. Park offers breakfast buffet.

You must disconnect when you pull in. If you have a reservation a driver will escort you to your site and then take you back to your tow. Pull Thru 50 amp Full hookup site. Room to park car at front of coach. Sites are good width leaving room to sit out and extend awnings. My site was very level and did not have to use jacks. Fully agree with the comments made by the previous reviewer. Would stay here again. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Highly recommend the Durango & Silverton narrow gauge railroad trip.

Stayed here several times before and always gave it a 10 but this year the WiFi was a disaster, worked once in a while and when it did it would go dead in a few minutes. I asked what was wrong and they said it has been bad for weeks, so why not fix it? Staff was great as usual, We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park was very clean. Nice wash room with about 8 washers and dryers. They offer pizza to be delivered that is made at the park. Pull-through a nice and large. Some of the back-in sites are very small. They will tell you they have good Wi-Fi but they don't! It basically is nonexistent. Picnic table was broken. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Durango is very nice for shopping and eating. Mesa Verde is only about 50 miles away. Horseback riding, rafting and much more is available.

We stayed here in a Silver Shadow teardrop. Every interaction with personnel was very positive except very first phone call. Led to our space by capable guy who helped us novices get backed in very competently. Custom pizza the first night after setting up was deeply appreciated. Restrooms are updated and spotless, open 22 hrs, closed 11 am to 1 pm. Nice camp store. Did not try the breakfast (about $8 per person) but seems popular. Grass on every site which they take care to protect by prohibiting rugs on it. Rugs ok elsewhere. Drainage issues others have mentioned appear to have been resolved, a small drainage channel at the back of our site drained water away during daily rain showers, and graveled roads never held water. Some sites in the middle roads seemed tight but we were happy with our site, and thought others along our row starting with 1 were pretty nice. Safe. Secure, family friendly, well supervised, left stuff out day and night, no problem. Dogs, but never saw any dog poop. Would stay here again in a minute. Close to but not in Durango, which is a lovely place to visit. If you leave early there is a $5 a day charge, seems reasonable. Never managed to get onto wifi, but saw people near the office doing computer stuff so assume I could have if I'd gotten closer. Verizon was fine. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

River walk in Durango. Downtown Durango. Walk out back door of RV park and take a hike if you're fit enough - some nice places to go.

We stayed here 6 nights. The bathrooms and laundry facilities were very clean. They offered for a small fee, breakfast and pizza at night. There is full hookups.

The down side is that there were so many Class A's and the spaces were so tight that you could hear your neighbor sneeze. We prefer more of a campground type environment. This was great if you like RV parks. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Only 2 miles from Durango. You can hear and see the Silverton Coal Fired train go by.

Camping options for big rigs in Durango are limited; making Alpen Rose one of the better choices. We've stayed here many times over the years and the prices go up while the amenities remain the same. This year we stayed in the numbered sites up front as the larger lettered sites were booked. The numbered sites were flooded and too tight for much of the one week stay. The flooding was mitigated by major construction work while we were there. As for the tightness of the sites, that is just the way it is. Since we love Durango we will continue to tolerate Alpen Rose. On the plus side, the views from the park are beautiful. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great location, far enough off the highway that road noise is not an issue (and we are at the end closest to the road). Very clean, picturesque. 2 acre enclosed dog play area- our dog loved it. All hookups worked well, Wi-Fi outstanding, even though the park was fairly full, as this is prime season. Sites are large gravel, they have been adding it to the sites to raise them more. There are several varieties of sites, priced accordingly. Park offers full breakfast on site daily. Store is reasonably well stocked, and prices are not outrageous. Staff very friendly, helpful, courteous. Escort to site and assistance in parking offered. An excellent experience- we liked it so much, we extended our stay. We would stay here again when in town. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You can see and hear the steam trains on their way to/from SIlverton from the park; closer views from the park entrance. A nice touch.

This campground is a mixed bag. Unfortunately there are no really great options in the Durango area. Alpen Rose is too crowded with sites way to close together. Many of the sites have the back of one RV up next to the back of another and many share utilities, too. This is a popular area and during the summer months and mostly you'll find that Alpen Rose is always full. One half of the park is big rig friendly so, you see all the big RVs here.

The back section is very shady with lots of trees - it can be difficult to park and maneuver there. We were not able to get our automatic Sat dish to see through the trees when we stayed there. While the front and side is wide open with no trees at all - this is where are those big rigs park.

The sites are gravel and the roads muddy and full of potholes. The bathroom/shower rooms are clean but older and in dated older buildings. If this campground would invest in some overall site improvements - replenished the gravel in the driveways, paved and leveled the sites and modernized the bathhouse it would be a great RV park in a great area. Until this happens we can't give this RV Park better than an "average" rating. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Durango is a very fun town to visit. Some very good restaurants, great night life and a nice downtown for shopping, etc. Many come to ride the train - be sure to read that it will take all day. If you have pets in your RV you may wish to arrange for a pet sitter. Many area campgrounds offer that service. The scenery, rivers, activities, eating and shopping make Durango a good place for an extended stay. Plus at approx 7,000' altitude it cools off at night and doesn't get too hot during the day.

We have visited this park once a year over the last ten years and have noticed the same trait in the ownership: "CHEAP". We always stay in the "letter row" because it gives us a lot of room and our stay in dry weather is a "10". The site is usually level gravel, wide enough to allow us to do what we need to do, Wi-Fi works sometimes (use your cell phone, signal is very good now), satellite works good, cable has short list of channels, and the surrounding scenery is great. This visit the snow and rain continued into the middle of May. A lot of the numbered sites were flooded. These sites had needed new gravel for years, but the ownership refused. Customers were bailing out of the park for several days and then finally the new gravel was brought in. The park was a dusty and loud construction zone now. People were being moved into the higher priced "lettered sites", at the lower rate. I was paying more and was now sharing my electric. Our other complaint now is the fact that the camp help meet you as you come into the park. They sound like a car salesman, trying to get you to stay in the more expensive sites. They don't tell you what sites are available, they just say," we have site 14 for you". You have no choice in this manner. If you stop here, go inside the office and handle your business there. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

This camp is just Ok. Water, sewer, electric and satellite worked. Stayed here a week and I would never stay here again. The lower part of the camp floods. There were several that had their electric and sewer lines covered up by water for several days. Our site was close to a community room so the breakfast crowd and some guy on a loader woke us every morning. One night was music night and lots of hooping and hollering going on after we wanted to go to bed. Tents aren't allowed but our neighbors had one. Staff and workers seem to be so chummy they forget who the customer is-which in this case was me and I wasn't a happy one. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Loved this park! The hosts/workers were great--very friendly, helpful with local restaurants, etc. Very clean, well maintained. Sites are a bit narrow, but it was OK, as we weren't there to be outside. The view of the mountains was great. Very quiet as it was far enough off the highway.
