Areas under trees can leave sap on MH and toad. Washed off windows easily so we assumed it was water soluble. Newer sunny areas have wonderful grass and thick rock. The older area where we stayed was in dire need of more rock. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park to use as a base when visiting all the attractions in the area. They are big rig friendly and easily accommodated our 44' MH and toad. The sites are gravel and maintained with various parts of the park having lots of shade or none, depending on your preference. There is a dog park and a dog wash. We did not use the laundry facilities but they appeared to be nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The office is stocked with tourist pamphlets and basic supplies and also offers free popcorn. They make their own pizza on site which is delicious and a nice option if you want to eat in and not cook. The only negatives are the poor wifi and the pool / no hot tub. Be prepared to use your own wifi or do without. The pool is tiny and they really should add a hot tub. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's a lovely park in a quiet, lovely location but I think a bit overpriced for early May. We were greeted warmly, our packet ready upon arrival and the Camp Host guided us expertly into a site that just barely fit our 45' plus our dolly. The Durango & Silverton Steam locomotive passes by the campground each day with a cheerful whistle as they steam by. They offer a discount for their breakfast but we didn't partake. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Don't miss taking the train from Durango to Silverton. If you can afford it, do the observation car if you go in the summer. We were lucky that we had a warm early spring day. It climbs from 6500' to 9500' so there's a significant elevation/temperature difference....be prepared!

This is really a nice park. It is much better than we expected based on the reviews. As nice as the park is, I have never been treated as poorly in 18 years of RVing. Based on information from RVparkReviews, when I phoned the reservation, I asked for a newer full size space up front rather than the older, cramped, out-of-level spaces in back. No go. We have a small rig so we were assigned a small space. We went to Alpen Rose any way because the location suited our needs and no other parks in the area had better reviews. We arrive, and sure enough, we are assigned a dumpy little space under the trees out back. I informed the lady that I had an astronomy telescope and I would like an open space in front that is not under the trees. So, she assigned us to a new spot which is also in back under the trees. What? The golf cart guy and I went back in the office and requested a front spot for the third time. The office person states that those are 50 Amp sites, and "we are sold out of 30 to 50 adapters". I went out to my motor home and returned with my 30 to 50 adapter in hand. She relented and assigned us the worst front site immediately across from the maintenance shed where the lawn mowers were coming and going. I counted spaces that evening. 20 of 34 front spaces were empty, a 60 percent vacancy rate. Also, they had a whole pile to 30 to 50 adapters in the store. The park is an 8 or 9. The customer service is a 1 or zero. We scored them a 4. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful views, clean, dog friendly, quiet - loved it! We stayed for 4 nights and was assigned near the dog park. a 2 acre fenced in dog run. Surrounded by mountains and we could see the Durango - Silverton train go by each morning and afternoon. It was wonderful. It was a great base to explore Durango and Silverton. They have a dog wash that was terrific - wish more parks had this. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Convenient to Durango and dog friendly. Sites are nice, most with trees. The down side is that it's pretty expensive and there's really no hiking nearby without driving to it. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Truck Camper.

First the positives: The park is located in a beautiful area of the Animas valley north of Durango. It is convenient to both Durango and Silverton. Sites are gravel and level. Now the negatives: most if not all of the pull through sites are a nose to tail arrangement. You face one way your neighbor faces the other and the hookups for both rigs are in the middle. This places both units very close to each other. So close that when inside my rig, I could hear a person inside the next rig coughing and their TV playing. Camper's dogs barked all day. People wandered around the park talking and laughing well past "quiet" hour. I did not find this to be a quiet park at all. The wifi is very sporatic, the park's solution was to hand you a handout upon check in stating not to count on the wifi. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We've stayed in the park 3 years in a row. Love the "big rig" sites, even though they're a little more expensive. Nice sized grassy site. Only problem is that the rigs are parked in opposite directions, which makes the utilities side quite close. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Highly recommend this campground, very organized and friendly staff, large dog park, breakfast and pizza cooked in campground, grounds and sites all well maintained, clean laundry facility with a number of washer and dryers. Just a good place to stay for five days. We were with friends and our site's layout allowed us to face each other which was great! We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall this is a nice RV park, but it's really two different areas. The front (newer) half is for the big rigs. They have lots of space but with less shade. The back half (adjacent and behind the office) is older with many big trees but it's much more crowded and several of the sites are not very level. We made it work but only with a 1ft block under the front. Parking for tow vehicles for some sites is not adjacent, and many sites opened up to each other so we were eye-to-eye with our neighbors. My recommendation is if want the shade try and get a site around the perimeter and not in the center, or stay out front in the big rig area. The amenities were nice, clean showers and restrooms, staff was helpful, wifi was slow but Verizon LTE worked well. Overall we would stay here again, if we could pick a space around the edge of the park. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a gem this park is! The location is great for Durango/Four Corners area attractions. The setting is scenic. The service is friendly. The grounds are immaculate. The bathhouse is clean and updated. Hot breakfast available. Great homemade pizza available. Wish we could have stay longer. We will be back. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Durango-Silverton railroad is a must. Consider riding train one way and bus the other. Train ride both ways takes a little longer and can be a little tiring.

Great place to stay. We stayed in one of the premium sites so we had plenty of room. Some of the regular sites looked very close together. It is a beautiful spot and very nice staff. The all you can eat breakfast is good and ready early! We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Alpine rose campground First the pros: The grounds looked well kept and clean. That is it for the pros. Now the Cons: 1We made reservations in April for a shady, level site. When we arrived our site was shady (but not where you had to park the RV) and not anything close to level. Though other sites appeared to be more level. The management comment was..."the campground is on the side of a mountain" 2. Site was basically unusable. No where level and in fact I not get level. That was just front to back. The pitch of the site we did not even get to. 3. Utilities (water, electric) are shared between sites and the sewer was so far away I would need a 20 ft run. Plus it was all uphill. Sorry but empting you tanks uphill does not work 4. With the units coming into sites in opposite directions (because of the Utilities) you shared a common space between rigs and a "community dining area). 5. The staff was pretty useless as well and told us "the site is fine). 6. They also advertise wi-fi...don't believe it. 7. So we made arrangements at another resort and left. We were told we were going to be charged one night stay and a cancellation fee. What ????? For a site we could not use???? Nor could anyone else. It was not what we were led to believe we had reserved. I would not stay here again. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.
