This was our first RV trip as a family and everyone had a blast! The site was very clean and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. They gave us two sites because they were each a touch small. Roads were wide and easy to navigate. Pool was clean and decent size, but we didn't use it. Each RV site appeared to have plenty of room. VERY quiet at night and peaceful.

The Durango-Silverton steam train line runs right through the campground, but the conductors are careful to keep whistle noise to a minimum in the morning (first train comes through at 8:40 am). There is a trolley that picks up for regular stops all the way to downtown. We were not charged when we used it.

Lots of hiking and activities in the area. Durango is a great town with very nice restaurants and friendly people. Train passes right by the bathrooms and laundry facilities. Great picture taking spot! Laundry machines were very reasonably priced and change machine was right there. We will most certainly be back next season! We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We loved the beer and food at Steamworks brewery downtown. Also hiked a few of the trails in the area. Bring water and sunscreen. Appears to be a lot of vegetation, but there isn't enough to provide full shade. If you have a half to full day, take the steam train to Silverton. The ride through the mountains will absolutely take your breath away! A bit pricey, but worth it. If traveling north, make sure you gas up before leaving town. There are only a couple of facilities until Silverton.

As noted by previous reviewers, the sites are tight and challenging to maneuver into. That said, this is a well maintained clean park that we enjoyed staying in. The Silverto-Durango narrow gauge steam train travels through the park to the delight of campers. Pool, laundry and restrooms were clean and well maintained. The biggest attraction for us was the trolley that stops at the entrance of the park every 20 minutes and, for a dollar, will take you to downtown Durango. There are many trolley stops in the city that makes returning easy. When we return to Durango, we will stay here. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

This park consists of gravel sites with some grass and a lot of very, very tall trees. In fact the trees blocked our satellite as well as most of the other campers there. They do NOT have cable. We were able to get a few TV channels over the air. The sites are buddy sites, meaning you will be parked head to tail with a close neighbor on your utility hook-up side and sharing your patio side with another neighbor. It was a little tight, but we were able to park easily with a 42' motor home. We disconnected the towed before going to the site. The narrow gauge train that runs from Durango to Silverton passes through approximately 4 times a day: twice in the morning beginning at 8:20 am and twice later in the afternoon around 5:30 pm. We wished there had been an off leash dog park. The only place to really walk the dogs was near the train tracks. The WiFi was pretty good at our site, but we were parked close to the bath house/laundry where the WiFi antenna was located. We received a 10% discount for paying by check. They seem to prefer that although they will take credit cards as well. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Honeyville is just a few miles north on Hwy. 550 and well worth the visit. The honey is delicious!

The Animas River trail is a great place to take a picnic and watch the rafters float by on the river. It's also a great place to take the dogs for a walk. There is a Farmer's Market in town on Saturdays and a Flea Market at the Fair Grounds on Sundays

Very excellent location. I didn't care for the alternate facing campground causing our patio area to be facing the neighbors patio area, with little privacy and sense of established border. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Fun place to stay. We travel in the summer with our teenage grandson and we select places of interest for him and us as well. The trains added an extra dimension as they pass thru in the morning and evening. It is close to a trolley stop for trips to town and is in a very shady cool place with lots of trees. Our grandson enjoyed the pool and of course running into town for dinner on a couple occasions. I would not hesitate to stay here again when in the area. We had no problem negotiating the roads which are gravel but watered daily to cut down on the dust. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Interesting park. Previous reviews seemed to indicate management issues. I have to say we had a very pleasant and helpful check in. There is no cable TV but we found the site offered good satellite reception. so e sites though are probably too shaded. Interior roads are gravel as are the pads. Some turns are a little tight for a 40'+ but no problem if you take it easy. Management waters the roads to minimize dust which is really helpful. Wifi proved very good. A great feature of this park though is the fact that the Durango Silverton stea m train passes right through the park. Really, really fun. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

I believe this would be a very nice place to tent camp. Sites are flat and grass.

Pick a site close to the tracks for a great train experience!

This is our second stay at this campground. We returned because of the trolley just outside of the campground which takes us to town for 50 cents! Also, the train that travels through several times a day. Campers and train riders wave to each other...what fun! Sites are close but we were lucky enough to stay in site 58 for several days. Laundry was clean. Owners/workers were helpful and pleasant. The one thing that would make this campground perfect is if dogs were permitted to be walked across the tracks. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Trying not to just pile on, but ...

Check-in should have told the story. Not friendly, clear messages on 'no discounts' and 'no river access'.

Our opinion of a heated pool apparently differs from the owner's.

Free wireless internet was among the worst we've experienced. Good signal strength but repeatedly just drops offline. Really, not usable for anything.

Free cable simply was not available.

Did I mention 'no discounts'?

Showing pictures of the Animas river as though you could access it is misrepresenting the park. All access is denied, fences are up, gates are locked.

Sites are very tight.

Bathrooms/Showers need some cleaning and work.

We didn't stay at any other parks in Durango though will certainly look elsewhere next time. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Park seems to have gone down hill. Agree with other reviewers that sites are not level, parking is close and owner could use some customer satisfaction training. If you are going to charge for a product, then you need to provide the product. For some reason, the owner is having issues with the cable company. Most likely cost! If the product is not available, then do not charge and make sure the client is aware of the issue prior to arrival. One note concerning the bathrooms? They are heavily used by the tenters and probably should be cleaned twice a day, including the showers. Hair in drains. For price, we expect more! We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

We stayed two nights here. Our campsite was nice but a little crowded in with lots of traffic noise.

Staff were organized and efficient but we didn't feel they were overly warm and friendly. They got the job done.

Bathrooms, showers and laundry were nice. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Tent Trailer.

We did not enjoy our one night here in mid June. Check in was brusque; we got the feeling that all she wanted was the credit card so she could get back to something else. The 'free' Cable TV was 'not working'. The camp, 4 miles north of town, is an older tiered gravel lot, along the hill side. Site was level and shaded, but the campsite has an older, run down feel. Showers had hot water, but the bathrooms were dirty and could use some maintenance/cleaning (garbage on the floor, no TP in the toilet.). I did not care for the 'common' shared power pedestal. This meant our patio side looked into our neighbors patio side; Our bedroom, on the other hand, was overshadowed by a hulking Class A. The dumpster was full of garbage. Basically, we didn't feel the price paid reflects the value received. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Clean park close to town yet in the country. The Durango-Silverton train runs through the park which is a huge hit! Friendly staff, wonderful showers, big and inexpensive laundry. The pool is very clean but right out in the open close to the road with only a few plastic chairs to sit in. We chose to not use the pool. We couldn't get the cable TV to work and the WiFi was very weak. Local coffee shops abound so we used them for that. BTW, the tent sites are beautiful. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.
