This is our second time here and it has been consistently good for us. Our rate is an early season rate for a nice, level adequately sized riverfront spot. Very quiet, the other campers were placed with empty sites between them. Great cable TV and WiFi. Our satellite worked as well. The only "problem" for us is that this campground is about 15 miles from the center of Durango. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

In Durango, we love "Oscar's" for a great breakfast.

The park was clean and the staff very friendly. The spaces are very close together but there is lots of shade. The observation deck on the river is nice to sit and watch and listen to the river flow by. I thought it was a bit expensive. I did not visit the ice cream shop or the pool. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Staying here on the river. Not very level and had to use several blocks just to get level. In fact, quite a few rigs here have had to get their front ends off the ground to get level. Staff friendly, gravel sites with good electricity. Free WiFi but gets slow in evening as everybody is on it. Our site was only 40 feet long by 12 feet wide. Won't stay here again when passing thru. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed our stay at this park. The park is all gravel and minor leveling was necessary on our riverfront site. The view of mountains and water was amazing, and the river was up due to the recent rains. The gravel roads held up very well considering the amount of rain received. The bathrooms were very clean. Staff was friendly, helpful and responsive. The park is very quiet at night and well off the highway. We had strong Verizon signal and had no problem with satellite TV reception. The park also has cable TV with many channels and a great picture. Although we did not use the heated pool, it is beautifully landscaped and maintained. Park is convenient to visit Silverton and Ouray as well as Durango. We would stay here again. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park is in a very nice location. The sites on the river were awesome but expensive and very close together. Our neighbors sewer was very close to our picnic table. They charge $5.00 per pet that you bring and I don't know why, there is no place for them to go. The check in process was very good. The office staff are cheerful and friendly. Our site was fairly level and all utilities worked fine. WI-FI was weak, but Verizon signal was good. About half of the TV channels were fuzzy, but the view and location were out of this world and we will come back. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in this park for 17 nights while visiting Durango and Silverton. The park staff were friendly and very helpful. The park is well maintained with many flower beds and nice views of the river. The sites in the park are long enough to accommodate larger RVs but are not very wide. The park has a nice pool that is kept clean and warm. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Disappointed. Dusty, crowded, 4-wheelers drove in the park til 9:45. Priced too high. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty park along the Animas River about 15 minutes from downtown Durango. The park itself is well-organized but the spaces are close. They get premium rates for the lovely riverfront spots and so they really line up the RVs. Spaces are level on gravel and everything works. They charge $5 extra per dog. The people in the office are nice and able to offer lots of useful information about the area. The park is very clean. All in all, a slightly pricey but truly pleasant place for a stay.

We reserved a site on the river and it was beautiful. The park was very clean and all of the staff were extremely nice and helpful. We stayed for five days. We would definitely stay in this park again. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent campground! Stayed for 6 nights in site 4 right on the river. The view was amazing. Very clean park. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The entire campground was always being picked up and taken care of. Large laundry facility, very clean, and nice game room for the kids. The pool looked very nice, but we did not use it. They had a small ice cream store on Friday and Saturday nights, and breakfast on Sunday morning. The camp store was a decent size and had good prices on Durango souvenirs. River sites are close together but definitely worth it. Wi-fi was slow, but Verizon 3G worked great. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Agree with last review, stayed 17 days, non river pull through. Don't come if more than 40 ft. Very hard to park and not much room. Main complaint was sewer gas wafting near our site, it came and went so management never could stop it. Very annoying, made it hard to enjoy sitting outside.

Overpriced. Relatively small narrow spaces. Spotty internet-comes and goes. Roaches in ladies bathroom-may be temporary problem-don't know. No river access unless you are in $70+ river site. No refund if dissatisfied and want to leave early which is stressed when you sign in (after they have your money). Sewer connections are located in bad area for each site-your neighbor's connection seems like it is right outside your front door. Did I mention "overpriced"? Park personnel are friendly and park was well kept (other than roaches mentioned above). Good cable TV service. Needless to say not our favorite park in Durango area.

We have been to this campsite about 3 times over the last five years or so. I am sorry to say that it appears the campsite is not being kept up very well. The biggest complaint is they do not trim the trees. We had to trim a tree to get our motorhome in and then found the river view obstructed with overgrown and dead trees. Park staff rides around on golf carts all day, but are not doing any work! It's a shame since this park has the potential to be much nicer. For $70 a night, we expect basic park maintenance at the very least. Two or three washing machines had towels on the ground for leaky washers and one dryer was out of order. The location is not ideal if you plan to spend much time in town, as it's about 15 miles out of town. I doubt we will return again on our next trip to Durango.

Stayed 6 nights in a back in site. First campground I stayed at where they let you reserve which site you want which was nice because I asked for a wide site with shade, which I got. Glad I did as some sites are very narrow. Saw several large MH having trouble getting into their sites. Water, sewer, electric all good. Laundry room okay and wifi iffy. Friendly staff. Access to the river is not easy we accessed between a couple of cabins that were empty, but it was a little steep to get to and from the river. Good location for exploring the Durango & Silverton areas. Would stay here again. We camped at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park. We stayed in a large site off of the river, but a short walk from the river, restrooms, and pool. The park is laid out well and the scenery is breath-taking. It was clean and well kept. The cable worked fine and the Wi-Fi worked pretty well. The pool is also very nice (heated and clean). We will definitely make a trip back here in the future.
