Typical of KOA's, this location is tight on space and heavy on price. Getting to your site is the first hurdle. Boulders are placed all through the campground to restrict movement and could easily damage your RV if not careful. We were in the 'new' section and while we had the largest site in that area, it was quite the chore to maneuver into our space. Boulders on all sides required precise placement, unattainable on the first try, to permit slides out and basement doors to open. Even then, the basement doors couldn't be fully opened. Tree limbs are also problematic. The site itself is soft gravel, allowing the tires to dig in and also making for dusty conditions. The smaller sites were incredibly close to each other and it looked like about 5 - 6 ft. between slide outs.

Located about 15 minutes outside of Durango right on US 160 makes for several problems. First is the noise. Constant trucks and traffic. Next, the narrow entrance is located just to the west of a hill that obstructs the view. Heavy, fast traffic and a restricted view make for questionable decisions pulling out into traffic, especially so when westbound into Durango.

I get the feeling that choices in Durango are limited. I will say, the staff was friendly and accommodating. WiFi didn't work and no cable TV. We camped at Durango KOA in a Motorhome.

Wife and I stayed at this KOA for two nights. We were quite surprised at the overall perfection that the owners and staff exhibit. Well done. They really cook up a great time here!! We will definitely stay here again next year when we return to Durango. We camped at Durango KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stay at KOA the first night when traveling in new territory; they have acceptable standards for cleanliness and infrastructure and courteous, helpful staff, but I don't usually wax rhapsodic about KOA. Durango KOA is an exception. This KOA is situated on a juniper ridge about six miles east of Durango, and quiet except for sites adjacent to the highway. At the height of tourist season, the restrooms and grounds were always clean; restroom size was a bit limited for the number of sites, but there were only a couple of delays, minutes only, at peak season. Everyone on the staff was super friendly, patient and helpful. They were able to switch us to a site nearer the restroom, even though the campground was full, and we were able to extend our stay another night. The site layout is strange; there is every size and shape of site, from small back-ins to big sites with decks and flower gardens. Flower and vegetable gardens are scattered throughout the grounds. The roads and most sites are gravel/dirt; a really big rig might find some places tricky to negotiate. The power went out one morning, but by the time I noticed, they already had an electrician fixing it. The neatest thing is the in-house pizza oven. We ordered a pizza for 7:30 in the evening; it was delivered to our site, still too hot to eat, with packets of pepper flakes and parmesan cheese in the box! It was perhaps the best pizza I have had. KOAs are sometimes pricey, but the Durango KOA prices are well in line with other campgrounds in the area (I strongly recommend you get reservations in advance in the Durango area). We didn't try the Wi-FI, but cell phones worked fine. We travel in an Aliner popup, and paid $40/night for four nights at a water/electric back-in site. Did I mention the pizza? We camped at Durango KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

When we needed doggie day care two days, we found the Durango Pet Resort, about a mile back toward Durango from the campground to be a large, clean, well-run facility.

Price is with the KOA card. This campground has a very odd layout with many KOA cabins. It's good to have an escort, but they move pretty quick so watch your unit on the way to your site. Lots of big boulders for landscaping can cause problems. It is on a mountain top so we didn't have the same standing water issues as many area campgrounds. They are 7 miles outside of Durango. Water, sewer, electric were good. We could not use the cable as you had to use a box from the office and hook it to the back of our TV, but we cannot access the back of our TV. Wifi was unusable. We did get major network TV over the air. They have some very nice patio sites for a bigger price which have outdoor table & chairs, concrete patio, some have big wooden swings. Bathrooms and laundry areas were clean. You can hear the highway. We enjoyed out stay here and would rate it higher with better wifi and paved roads and sites. We camped at Durango KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

They offer pancake breakfast, which we did not try, but we did have the custom made pizza which was prepared at the office and delivered to our site and was very good.

First the good: the staff were very friendly and helpful. The attempt to landscape was nice. Activities for the kids. The reason for a low rating: campsite was not level and we had a lot of trouble getting our Motorhome level. Large rocks lined the sides of each big rig site which made it impossible to open the basement doors without help from a second person to hold the door to keep it from hitting the rocks. Interior roads were narrow and muddy with a little gravel and also lined with large boulders. Sites were muddy. Cable was not a simple connection at the box it had to be hooked up inside your unit to your main relay. We will not stay here again. We camped at Durango KOA in a Motorhome.

This was voted the top KOA in 2012 and it still deserves it. The layout is a bit "freelance" and you definitely need someone to lead you to your site. But very nice facilities. Some road noise, but overall, a nice RV experience. We camped at Durango KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nicely landscaped KOA, with easy access from Hwy.160. Gravel roads, and fairly level, though somewhat tight, gravel sites. Escort to site; friendly, helpful staff. Pool, mini-golf, and 2 dog parks (large & small dogs). WiFi worked for me. We enjoyed our stay here, and would stay again. We camped at Durango KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed three nights to tour Durango/Silverton and Mesa Verde NP. Sites are level, but close together. The sites are gravel/dirt so there was some dust; it didn't rain, which could have been a problem. The camp is close to the highway, but traffic noise was minimal. Pizza and breakfast are offered at a reasonable price. Facilities were excellent. We would camp here again. We camped at Durango KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground with full hookups and good wide spaces with grass between sites. Staff/owners were very friendly and very helpful. Although it is close to the road, noise was very low. At dusk we saw some deer in the field next to the RV park. Nice pool, miniature golf, and facilities. We will stay here again. We camped at Durango KOA in a Motorhome.

We rarely stay at a KOA due to cost and our disinterest in most amenities, but this one looked like one of the cheapest RV parks in the Durango area. It's about 7 miles south of town, up a long grade, going by all the big box stores. The host was ready for us when we arrived and his partner drove us to our site, which was a nice back in with full hookups including cable. We ended up using our over-the-air antenna for the limited channels of interest to us. A person on neighboring property with a dirt motorcycle was a little worrisome but was not a problem. We stayed here to ride the Durango-Silverton train. We didn't try the internet as we had our Verizon card. The rate shown includes sales tax and is the single night rate. We stayed two days and would stay here again were we in the area. We camped at Durango KOA in a Motorhome.

Park is very near main thoroughfare to Durango, and is relatively noisy. Although there are some trees, most of them aren't large enough to provide any useful shade at camp site where we were located. We were assigned slot #31, and while it is listed as a pull through, it would be very difficult to to accomplish if adjacent slots are filled. Tow parking was awkward at best, however adequate for our overnight stay. We camped at Durango KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice staff. Clean laundry and bathrooms. Spots downhill are right on top of each other. All dirt and muddy. Rack rate excessive. Seven miles out of town. We camped at Durango KOA in a Motorhome.

Our first visit to this campground and it won't be our last. The staff and owners are exceptional, the grounds are immaculate. We had our grandkids with us and they loved the pool, mini golf and especially the panning for gold. The lady who was in charge of the panning is a real jewel herself! Be sure to get a pizza, too! We camped at Durango KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the best KOA I have stayed at so far. Plenty of shade and privacy with a nice view of the mountains from our site. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. I will return! We camped at Durango KOA in a Travel Trailer.
