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.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Reasonable breakfast each morning in the center of the park.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Ouray & Silverton. Go horseback riding. Check out the microbreweries in Durango. Enjoy 4-wheeling!!

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Durango is a nice town to visit. The drive to Mesa Verde is very pretty and the trip is worth it.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Durango, the unbelievably stunning drive to Silverton, Animas bike trail.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Fishing in the Animas River, shopping Durango, train to Silverton.

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

We met friends here to ride the Durango Silverton train. The park was nicely kept. A work camper/park host helped my husband back into our space, which I greatly appreciated. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
