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.

Tips for other Campers:

Great place to see the Silverton- Durango train, if that is your wish.

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.

We tried to camp here in a 34' motorhome. The sites are a bit tight and you park side-to-side, with utilities in the middle. Were unable to get the HWH levelers to complete their cycle in our first site, first time we have had that happen. Went back to the office, the manager/owner (?) happened by while I was speaking with the woman who checked me in, and he took the attitude of "Really,...?". That posture didn't put me in a good frame of mind, but I tried the second site, and the same problem- the levelers could not complete the process due to slope. At this point, I was more than happy to cancel, forfeit my deposit and 5% total payment penalty and go elsewhere. There were people in other sites, so some obviously work, but my experience was a very poor one. I will not be back. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

When we made our reservations, they only had back-in spots left, and that did fine for us. We parked our toad beside the RV. We watched some of the pull-in people struggle to get their truck/trailers or motorhomes/toads within the sites. Sites are all gravel with a little grass here and there. It's fun to see the train ride through the campground.

The WiFi is very sporadic, as is the Verizon signal. Verizon changes from 3G to LTE and back, so my hotspot comes and goes, as does their WiFi. They advertise that they have cable, but she told me when I checked in that it doesn't work. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at Zia Taqueria. It's the best Mexican food I've ever eaten!

First, the good: Level gravel sites, lots of shade and best of all, the campground back up to the Durango Railroad track. You can see the train several times a day. Now the bad: Although they advertise cable TV on the Internet and camp map, there was none. The trash dumpsters were overflowing, and I mean overflowing. The bathroom was up a steep hill with lots of steps. The showers were small and the bathroom had a funny smell. Other than that, it was an OK stay. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Travel Trailer.

This is the least friendly park we've stayed at. It just opened and the host acted like they didn't want us there. wifi was unreliable even though there were only 10 other campers. Cable did not work at all.

Location is good which is why we stayed even after meeting the host. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Motorhome.

Rate includes tax without discount. Gravel sites with side by side hookups. Pull-throughs too short to remain hitched but room to park next to unit. Mostly level but had to kneel unit quite a bit to level from to back. Recycling not available. Wi-Fi was okay but cable was out of service the entire 4 nights we were there. Good over the air TV and satellite dish friendly. Had site along the RR track to watch the train. Would stay here again. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
