This is our third time (maybe fourth) to stay at Alpen Rose..WE LOVE this RV park. The sites we have stayed in are always nestled in lush trees, providing great shade and atmosphere. The whistle of the famous Durango-Silverton train off across the highway is an awesome sound. The staff is helpful and friendly AND we always catch a couple of trout for dinner! We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

.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. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park just on the North side of Durango. Took about 10 minutes to get into the heart of town. My site was pretty sloped and required me to use about 16 levelers as well as raising my tongue jack pretty high to just get the camper level. Cable signal was strong (about 8 channels), WiFi was strong (they give you password), and cell reception was good (we have AT&T). All you can eat chuck wagon breakfast was cooked every morning, it smelled great but we did not feel like paying the extra $8.95 per adult (I think children were $5-6). Self-service dog wash available for $10, trout pond available (looked pretty stocked) but you have to keep what you catch (no catch and release) and pay $4.80 per fish, and a pizza place is located in the office and open everyday until 8 PM. Washer and dryers were open until 10 PM and run you around $5 to wash and dry one load. They have a nice above ground pool (open until 8 PM) but the playground was limited to two swings and a tether ball. I would stay here again. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very good campgrounds. This is our first time staying here (Stayed just down the road and never there again) and found the very nice. Gravel roads, easy level, very friendly staff, picnic table at each site, lots of shade, clean laundry and fairly new. Many sites are set to where you share your or face you neighbor. Internet was not very fast but reliable, cable is about 12 stations, antenna channels are about 12 stations. Great place to see all the sites around Durango. Next time we come to this area, we will stay here. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent location to tour the Alpine Loop, Silverton, Mesa Verde, off road trails, etc., it will be hard to beat this. HUGE dog park (2 acres). Good wifi. The cable was fuzzy, but we used our satellite. Our end site had a nice big grassy area. It was great for Washer Toss! The laundry room is huge. The office features lots of local information, free popcorn, and small restaurant. The grounds are wonderful as they cut the grass continuously. We stayed for 3 weeks and would stay again.

Nice park. A mix of back-in and pull through sites. All interior roads and sites gravel. If you need a clear view of the skies for satellite dish make sure you ask for one at the time of reservation as a number of the sites have very limited sky view due to trees. Clean laundry room in the center of the park. They meet you near the park entrance and provide escort to sight and back in assistance if needed. WiFi reliability at our site mixed depending of time of day. Nice large dog park area. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here before & always return. Great location! You can even watch the Durango/Silverton train go by! The Big Rig sites (A-H) are the best. Level, long, grass, good 50 amps. Great location north of town right on the way to a day trip to Silverton & Ouray. We love this place! We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

One of our favorite RV parks is Alpen Rose. The setting is gorgeous, the sites are gravel with grass between the sites. Lots of trees, mountains in the distance, long gravel driveway and HUGE dog play area. Staff is very accommodating. We camped in a 45' motorhome and look forward to our next visit.

The park is in a very pretty location. There is a huge dog area and a fair amount of grass. Unfortunately, they assigned us to very poor site.

We were sandwiched between two rigs with noisy people and a barking dog. We had to ask three times to move. Most sites are not level and the sites are very close together. We will not return here. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Level gravel sites, grass between sites, picnic tables. Met at office by fellow who guides you to site. Must disconnect before parking. Close to town. Laundry was pricey-2.75 wash 2.00 dry. We had 50 amp and great satellite reception. The only negative was that sites faced each other. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Close to Durango...15 minutes. Grass out side the door. The Durango/Silverton train passes each day and you can hear and see it. Very cool. Power pole in great shap, water good as is sewer hook up. We have stayed at United camp ground in past but tried this instead, to our positive pleasure. Laundry pricy. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely flat, grassy sites with adequate room. There is a two-acre fenced dog area. Trains to Silverton sound their horns around 8:30-9:00 AM and around 6:00 PM but otherwise all is quiet. There is extra parking as some sites are a bit tight for a rig and car. The only downside is that some campers don't realize they should not walk on other's campsite as a shortcut to their rig.
