We stayed here 4 nights on Passport America rates. We had been driving a lot and my wife wanted to rest for a few days before continuing. This was the perfect place. Luxury sites with excellent wifi. The nice camphosts showed us all around. We used the exercise room, pool, hot tub, restrooms and showers. They were all immaculately clean and neat. The smoke smell and some meals were our only drawback. The BBQ ribs were not smoked (probably pressure cooked and baked with BBQ sauce added} tender but not BBQ. Surf and Turf buffet, surf all fried and roast beef over cooked ( well done) Coffee and Lattes and muffins as well as the pancakes were very good. Overall we were very pleased. We would come back here again. - JAWS

Great RV park!! All sites are paved pull throughs. The park hosts could not be more welcoming and helpful. Check in was a breeze, though it is done in the casino at the hotel registration. The are laundry facilities at the casino's hotel. The location of the park is great for exploring this part of Colorado. Would not hesitate to stay there again. - Sheila B

This campground is next to the casino, all nice sized pull through sites, good utilities, very clean, staff s nice. If there was more in the area we would hang around longer. Not a bad drive to Durango however. We would certainly return if in the area again. - hdrider

Stayed here for four nights with family. This is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in. I would give this park a 10 rating except it is in the country, not really close to amenities. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. The several acres attached to the RV park are peaceful and well maintained. - Buzz6

Park is nice if you can get larger lots, not many available. Our lot was in gravel parking lot, very tight. OK for a couple nights. I think it is overpriced for what you get. - oncemore

Stayed 2 weeks - 18 miles east of Durango. Well managed and maintained park. Mostly short term residents but a few long term but you would never know it. Park accented with hundreds of flowers attracting countless hummingbirds - had 5 at one time at our feeder with others jockeying to get in. Ample space between rigs. Hookups in good working condition. Had a long pull-through with sufficient room to park our truck. Spaces and wide roads are gravel - dust not a factor.
Trout stream runs through the park with several ponds - great fishing and swimming for kids. A large meadow at the back of the park with a yak and an alpaca (?) that you can feed. No fenced dog area but most people were letting dogs run in the meadow. Management protective of the grass and will get you to move your mat or vehicle if they are on the grass. Portable fire pits are available although limited - ask for one. Highway is close - did not present a noise factor for us although some rigs were parked much closer to the road. Large grassy area by the office for tents and playing Frisbee.
Gas station, grocery store and restaurants are only two miles away. Brenda's is great for breakfast. Downtown Bayfield is small with a few places to eat and several bars. Wi-Fi and television were excellent throughout the park - had no problems. Park is quiet. We experienced a lot of social activity. There are big trees throughout the park - not every unit has shaded - no trees in our space (#37).
East check in - staff friendly and helpful. Owner lives at park - very friendly and available. When coach next to us was sprayed by water from sprinklers owner apologized and personally wiped down the coach to owner's satisfaction. Limited RV supplies in office. Ice available. There is a well-stocked RV supply and repair shop in Durango along with Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Albertsons and other well-known stores.
Highly recommend - will return with our 23-footer. - Camino Travelers

This camp is located near the northern tip of Navajo Reservoir at Arboles, CO. Arboles has a state park with a boat ramp, convenience store, and not much else; it is 33 miles to shopping, restaurants, etc. The camp was very clean and the owner, Gary, was great to work with. He said the park would soon be sold to new owners. The camp looks like it was built 30+ years ago. It is probably due for some renovations. The power did not work at my site, but Gary got it working for me. The WIFI signal was strong, but had to be rebooted a time or two. The laundry facilities were closed and were never open. I stayed a week. Most of the spaces had units in them, but the camp was very quiet until Friday evening when owners showed up to fish and boat. Sunday evening it was quiet once again. Overall, a nice, quiet place to stay in a remote area of Colorado. Just keep your expectations modest. My daily fee was based on a weekly rate. - CO Traveler

We used our passport america membership. We enjoyed the area and stayed a week. The staff was very friendly. We would stay again. - M.Register

This is a small campground that is a bit remote and near a state park. It doesn't have all the amenities of larger campgrounds but is in a pleasant location and is very quiet. Sites are adequate for all but the largest RVs. Staff was very friendly and helpful during a tow vehicle breakdown. - RV'er

We enjoyed a restful stay at this state park after a couple of busy weeks at another location. The sites by the lake are awesome! Great views and very spacious. We stayed in a full hookup site. We didn't use the bathrooms, but my husband said he went in and they weren't that nice. Since we had full hookups that wasn't a problem. Verizon worked well here. As we were driving into the park I had no Verizon signal, but as soon as we got to the campground, the signal was good. There must be a dead spot on the way in. I think AT&T also worked, but we didn't use it much as AT&T is our backup in case Verizon doesn't work. - Love2Camp777

The staff was very helpful and the facilities were very clean. I found my particular campsite to be well kept and ready for me to use. I also had a very nice view of the lake and my surroundings were absolutely beautiful and very quiet. - AlAva

There are sections for camping, full hookups, water/electric, or no hookups. We stayed in the full hookup section. Good water, electric, etc. There are no stores nearby except a small gas station with very limited items, otherwise plan on driving 30 miles to nearest store. Spots are well spaced from each other and view of lake is nice, providing you reserve a spot facing the lake. - 24motorhome

Great service; good store. Wonderful site near front of campground & office. Spotty wifi but "magic" table on patio outside of office proved to have better wifi service. Offered free Saturday night on KOA Appreciation Weekend. Special treat: owner maintains vegetable gardens with fresh herbs for the picking and free vegetables in the office when available. (My chef-husband loved these perks!) - BShearer

This was an overnighter for us but enough time to determine that this is the BEST rv campground we have ever stayed in. The front desk person put it so well... This park serves as a standard by which you will judge all others. And he is spot on. The bathrooms and showers were spotless down to the corners. The grounds are well maintained. And the full-time gardener offers taste treats at no charge. Every single employee cares and it shows.
You will not be disappointed in your decision to stay here. A great value.
When returning at night watch carefully for KOA driveway. There is no turn lane off of Hwy 160. - loopy1954

We stayed here for five days while visiting the Durango area. This is a well kept superb CG suitable for longer stays. Our site was a level pull through with neighbors a bit closer than usual for the KOAs we have visitied. That said we did not feel cramped and used the charcoal BBQ and picnic table at our site regularly. The CG is located about 9 miles from town center. We experienced some road noise from I-160. The management has obviously put allot of effort into making this the best CG possible. Breakfast is offered each morning as well as great pizzas made in the office (delivered to your site). Pool, herb and vegetable gardens along with a playground, two laundry areas are just some of the amenities available. Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the large fenced in dog exercise area. - Russ60

This is the only Durango area RV park open during the off season. To say that it is "rustic" is putting it mildly. There's a lot of old equipment (mining?) around. There's antiques galore in the office and in front. Considering nothing else was available, this was good enough for an overnight stay. Friendly manager. Wi-Fi works good. - ArmandV

Pulled in on Thanksgiving Day; no one was around. Phone didn't even work; tried to call and got disconnected. The other reviewers are right, it's pretty much of a dump with long-termers that looked like oil field workers. As it's the only park in town open during the winter, I went on to the next town. - Old Mountain Man

We have stayed at Durango RV park for four different summer vacations from 2001 to 2010, and it's always good to return to a safe familiar place. It's like our home away from home. We tow our Jeep and take full advantage of the trails and views within our daily range. We have enjoyed the scenery on US-550 dozens of times to Silverton and Ouray and if you're really brave, don't miss the Alpine loop. If you're really really brave, test your Jeep's endurance and driving skills from Telluride over Imogene Pass to Ouray. Enjoy the scenic trails in LaPlata Canyon. Visit the Telluride hydro plant and the Ames or Ouray hydro plants. At the end of the day, have dinner at the Silverton Brown Bear or the dozens of restaurants in Durango. Durango RV Park has lots with trees and shade and a mountain view where you can see the weather conditions all the way to Engineer Mountain. Your camp site is a private and quiet place where you can enjoy your lawn chairs with no bugs and no smoke from campfires. Enjoy the hummingbirds, flowers, farm, mining and industrial antiques at an old-iron lover's paradise. Easy access to shopping at Aztec, Farmington, Cortez, Durango, Bayfield or Ignatio. It's in the middle of it all with low monthly rates, friendly hosts, an easy path to DirecTV or Dish Network, DSL phone connections, laundry and mail. If you are into skiing or other winter fun, they are open all year. - oldengine

It looks like some have permanent or summer homes in the park, but everything is kept just beautifully. As soon as the people next to me left the other day, there was a gentleman there checking the site to make sure it was left in clean condition. I tried to sign up for another week, willing to pay full price. No sites available. This is a lovely, quiet park that is convenient to everything, yet far enough away from everything. The scenery is beautiful. People at the park couldn't be nicer. I'm very disappointed to be hitching up tonight and I'll be happy if I find a park half as nice as this one. - joanofarc

This is such a friendly park. We just finished our third summer there and made plans for next summer for 1 month. We have met some of the nicest people there. The owner, Dave, makes brick oven pizzas to order on Fridays which are fantastic.
It is like a one big family. Great weather, lots of trees and you are about 3 mins away from the lake and about 25 minutes away from Durango.
Only complaint is that the cable tv isn't that good. It maybe because of the mountains and channels are very limited.
They are adding a new laundry room.
There is a breakfast almost every Saturday which is very reasonable and there is all sorts of things to do at the campground. Bands come and play, pot luck dinners and they have a great area for kids to play. if you enjoy camping don't miss this campground, you will be delighted! - bruce g

We were looking forward to staying at this State Park campground for a few days. After one overnight, we were glad we only paid for one night. We should of followed our instincts the moment we drove-in, and left. There is so much open space along the lake, but the campground sites are packed into a small and congested area. The campground is situated well above the lake with excellent views. Access to the lake from the campground is difficult. Some sites are level and sufficient for moderate size RV units. Most are not level and nearly all are without spaciousness and privacy from the neighbors. The paved loop roads are narrow and could be a challenge for a big rig. What drove us away was the unexpected crowd and residential living. It was mid-week during October and only a few sites were available. By evening the place was full. Supposedly, there a 14 day limit. Many of the campers looked like they have been on site for many weeks. Many had school age kids and we wondered why they were not in school. The noise level here at night was rather bad. Needless say, we will not return to this place. - James Barr

Stayed here five nights and I believe this is the best campgrounds New Mexico has to offer. Very remote, but it's worth the drive. Roads are good, but winding and steep in some places. Spaces are okay for small to moderate RVs, but over 30' may be difficult. My site had a beautiful view of the lake and the Colorado Rockies in the distance. The site was a pull through, but there was a tree in the way so I backed in. This is one of the only New Mexico State Parks that has a dump station and it has two. I will be back. - JC69

Camped on bluff above the lake. About half the sites can be reserved until November 1st when it is all first come, first served. Many sites can accommodate larger 5th wheels but some are pretty tight to get into. First weekend in October 100% full with fishermen snagging salmon and fishing trout. Several open spots during the week. Visitor center was closed a lot of the time which made it harder to determine which sites were available. There is another state campground a few miles away (Cottonwood) and it was full also during the weekend. - fander

We camped here for 4 days. You need a reservation which was easy to do by phone and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are 6 sites with water and electric (30amp), no sewer. You need to have an extra long water hose as water is shared. The sites are in a gravel area, all back-in, fairly level. There are no facilities, no bathrooms or showers, no dump station. The area is right near the facilities dept which maintains the fairgrounds and they work all hours so it can be a bit noisy. The Durango community recreation center is next to the fairgrounds, we were told you could use these facilities (gym, showers) for a daily fee. The fairgrounds is about a mile or two from historic downtown Durango. You can ride the trolley ($1 per ride) into town as the stop is across the street from the fairgrounds or you can walk on the Animas River trail which is behind the fairgrounds and easy. We felt like this was a bargain compared to the private campgrounds in the area, and a lot closer to town. We would definitely stay here again. - mohocamper

The first time we stayed at the fairgrounds we had to use a long cord for electric. It was a 50 amp site. The staff was great. The next time we stayed here we had a 30amp site and we were able to use a normal cord for electric. The staff was good to us the second time too. I have a self contained motorhome so I have my own restroom. The fairground is like a small dirt parking lot. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. I would stay here again for a short visit to explore Durango. The price was good. - Seize the Day RV Adventures

Six sites, all gravel so a bit dusty, located in Durango, so very convenient for us as we were there for visiting friends and attending the Cowboy Poetry gathering. Some sites have a long run for water/electric service. Great value compared to other parks in the area. - Bill Strong

This is a nice small campsite, alongside the San Juan river with relatively easy access even for big rigs. The campsite offers good fishing from the bank, trees and picnic tables. There is no wifi and our verizon just about worked. We would have given this site a better rating but unfortunately the park doesn't allow fire rings, charcoal BBQ;s or camp fires, unlike the local state park campsites nearby. Only propane grills are allowed. The owner is fastidious about the grass alongside each RV slot ( sand) and wont let you leave chairs or camp equipment out on the grass in case it damages it. We had to put all chairs, coolers and grills away each night. When we stayed in May the grass alongside the RV was watered daily each morning. - Hilary & Tony

This was a find! Small pretty grassy park beside the San Juan River, most sites have shade trees, all have colorful picnic tables. Three or four riverside sites have electric & water but no sewer, $5/day more. Friendly owner. Downside: no cell phone or wi-fi coverage. Upside: quiet, peaceful, lovely with river, trees, rocky plateaus. Fishing in river onsite or in lake about 8 miles away. Decent restaurant with wi-fi a few miles down the road (Abe's). Officially in Blanco, actually in Archuleta community close to Navajo Dam State Park, between mile markers 6 and 7 on Hwy 511. - cmcwbl
