Lots of trees in the campground but we did get satellite signal. Sites had OK room between them. Try to get one on the front roll where you can sit at your campsite and watch the train come thru. Pretty level but nothing fancy campground. We would stay here again We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 3 times. Not a bad park. Too many trees for DirecTV to work. Small store, swimming pool, but plenty of space between RVers. The best part is it's on the trolley line so a trip downtown is free and you don't need a tow. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Excellent RV park. Very convenient to downtown Durango especially with one of the trolley stops is right across the road from the park. The trolleys are extremely punctual, running every 20-minutes. Yes, the Durango/Silverton train passes directly through the park several times a day but it's a very brief passing and it's part of the fun. The passengers and RVers wave at each other during each passing. Spacing for some sites is tight but most RV parks are. We joined some friends from California and we had adjacent sites that allowed us to have our front doors face each other. There was a very nice greenbelt for walking dogs. Clean up, of course. The greenbelt and railroad tracks separated the tent section of the park from the RVs. Our only complaint, and we voiced it to the management, is that because our adjoining site was comparatively large, other campers often took the liberty to cut through our site on the way to the office, pool, or bathrooms. We were surprised by this but it was happening so often we asked management if it was acceptable. They said absolutely not and gave us permission to request that the campers don't pass through. We did that a couple of times but had better success in stemming the flow by arranging our tables and vehicles in such a way most campers got the message. This was not the park's fault. Just rude campers. Lots of trees that made satellite reception impossible at our sites but the cable was good. Wi-Fi was acceptable. Slow sometimes but reasonably fast most of the time. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Travel Trailer.

We had a lovely riverview site (94/95). It was in the "longer" section and was not long enough to pull the jeep in straight behind the motorhome. There was no place to just let your dog run, just places for walking. The view of the mountains was beautiful and we really enjoyed the trains coming by in the morning about 8:15 and evening about 5. It is close to catching the trolley to Durango so you don't have to drive. We drove as it is just a couple minutes in but parking can be hard to find! We would camp here again.

Great park on the river with some view sites. The steam train passes through the park six times a day to great fanfare. If you miss the turn, go around the block to avoid a tight u turn. There is very little dog walking in the area. The free shuttle goes to town three times per hour. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground to stay at if you like trains, as the Durango-Silverton steam train passes right through the middle of the campground several times a day. If you like sleeping in past 8:00, however, this is not the park for you, as you will be woken up when the train comes through. Wifi works well (I measured the speed at 8 megabits at one point), as long as you are located near the laundry room where their one hotspot is located. If internet access is important to you, ask for a site in that area. There are reports that sometimes speeds will get bogged down at peak times. The map distributed at check-in says the pool is open until 9 pm, and I was disappointed to learn that that is only true during peak season (starting around July 4th). During my stay, it closed at 8 pm. They need to do a better job communicating this fact to campers. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Travel Trailer.

This park is right on the Durango-Silverton Railroad with the train passing right through the camp. The restrooms are clean and the camp is well maintained. There is a small pool and the owners are friendly. Overall it is a nice place. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

We really liked this campground. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Gave good suggestions for sightseeing and touring Durango. All sites are pull thrus and level, with shade trees and a picnic table. We were on the last row next to the railroad tracks. The Durango-Silverton train went back twice a day and was not a bother at all. Our front windows looked out over the tracks and the tent area where deer gathered every afternoon. This area of Colorado is beautiful and this campground is very well maintained. The laundry facilities were excellent. All machines worked well and facilities were very clean. Did not use the bathroom facilities. We would not hesitate to stay at this campground again. Many things to do in and around Durango. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, just out of town, quiet, serene, and green. The pool was nice and the people are friendly. This is a great place to stay when visiting Durango. Take the train to Silverton, it is quite a good trip. The shuttle to town picks you up across the street. Gravel sites, wide, cable 100+ stations, Verizon phone & WiFi worked great. They also have WiFi, but it was low at site 57. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Fifth Wheel.

OMG!! This was a fun park; the train goes right through the campground--twice in the morning (8:15 and 9:00) and twice in the evening. Folks gather to wave to the returning trains. The FREE trolley right at the front entrance into town was super. We had a back-in site that was plenty big and right under a huge tree with lots of shade. Friends came and had a pull in site right next to us. Sites were gravel and very level. We saw lots of large rigs on the next lower level and though close, they all had slides out and room to walk between. (But as someone said, if you wanted private sites, this is not for you.) Staff was very friendly and helpful. I did have several issues that caused me to downgrade from a possible 10: first, they have NO recycling at the campground, even though they do it in town. It's not that difficult and as campers we should be encouraging environmentally friendly policies. Second, all the rest rooms/showers have cypher locks on the outside door. I just don't see the need, if you have a diligent staff. Finally, though I got on the internet OK, it was slow and did drop on a number of occasions. But we would definitely come back here.

Stayed here 3 nights visiting the Durango & Silverton Railroad. Trains pass through the campground and this feature was why we chose to stay here. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is closer to town than most of the other parks in the area. The free trolly picks up and drops off out front of the campground which is a nice plus, especially for those without a car. However, the tight, unlevel sites makes for a challenging set up. Additionally, the noisy steam train literally runs directly behind the last row of RV sites and in front of the tent sites make for a disturbing experience early in the morning and again in the afternoon. There is not a pet walk or off leash area. The staff was friendly and the laundry facility worked well. We stayed 1 night and moved up the road to another park.

Nice place just at the end of the Durango shuttle. Free service into town, and a decent restaurant within walking distance. Staff has no computer in the office, which might explain why I couldn't pre-pay a day before to hold,...insisted I call if not going to arrive before 4:00. Sprint phone signal weak and, more importantly, Wi-Fi is horrid. Lady in office explained that system easily overloaded by too many users, and we should just keep trying. Too bad, because it's an otherwise nice facility with much to offer. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.
