This park is a nice park but can be so much more if a little money was put into it. Nice sites right along the river. Grass or (weeds) between the common spaces could be watered and green and it would be more inviting than dirt. With Wolf creek right down the road, that is their competition. We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

if you show up before check in they will not let you park even though the spot was vacant. They said they had to clean the site and when we came back at 1:00 the table was filthy and the office staff was very rude. The campground was not cleaned. I would never stay there again. They could definitely be more accommodating to their paying customers. They could have said park here until check in but please don't plug in your electricity. We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites were level with full hookups, and were near a small river with a large pond that had a walking trail around it. Tents were on the other side of the pond. We were on gravel, and there were shady areas, but we were not in one. We called ahead for a reservation for that night. The park was mostly full when we got there. RVs were pretty close together. The wifi only worked in the office building, not in our RV. We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed 9 nights. Was only supposed to be 7 but our truck broke down when we were leaving the campground. The staff was quick to help us - got us into a new site and the contact info for a repair shop. The owner is super sweet and is continuing the campground in her late-husband's honor. You can tell the campground has been in existence for a long time, but you can see the consistent effort made by staff to keep it up. None of the sites are quite the same shape, so sometimes you'll have a bit more breathing room and sometimes you don't. Width of pull thru accommodated our fifth wheel with slides on both sides and our truck parked next to it. Our site also had enough room for us to park our small SUV, flat trailer and 2 motorcycles. Site probably used to be gravel at some point, but is mostly dirt now. Some grass/dandelions on the sides. Our site had a firepit and a taller barbeque grill (with garbage in it from disrespectful campers). Plastic picnic table in good shape also included. Hookups worked as desired. Our first site wasn't super level, we used extra boards under our jacks so they weren't extended so far. Second site a few down was much better. We were in the row behind the river sites. Unless you're a motorhome with a big window, I personally wouldn't pay extra for the river sites. I could see the rushing river and the pond out my window from the second row. Very quiet/dark at night and great star viewing. Nice walking path around the pond. Wifi worked fine for surfing websites/social media. Had a couple bars of AT&T LTE. Bathroom/showers are a bit of a walk from many of the sites except the pond tent sites. Interior roads have the occasional pothole so observe the slow speed limit. Some big trees and bushes, but none rubbed/hit the RV. We'd absolutely come back here; prettier than the other nice RV park in town. Pagosa is a wonderful area. We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The forest service roads in the area are fantastic. Plumtaw Road and the trek to Piedra Falls (waterfall) was awesome. Stop at the US Forest Service office to get free maps. Treasure Falls down by Wolf Creek Pass beautiful and easy to get to. Buckskin Towing & Auto Repair quick and efficient with repairing our truck. The Giant gas station at Piedra Rd has CHEAP propane. Easy drive to Durango; take the train to Silverton.

Though this is an old KOA campground, the owner and management are definitely upgrading it! Some sites are a little close, but with the San Juan River right next to the campground...wow! Just a beautiful area. Very nice staff, management, and owner! We will stay here again! We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife and I and our miniature schnauzer glamped in a 43 foot pusher with tow. We had an incredible pull thru site 30 feet from the river. Idyllic, rustic and scenic. The basics are well done. Good water, power, sewer, cable, and wi-fi. AT&T was OK and Verizon was unavailable (according to a fellow Texan parked nearby). San Juan river setting, cool water, tall trees, small lake, reedy marsh, plenty of trails combine to make a bird-watchers paradise. Gravel roads and sites. Sites are fairly flat with metal picnic table, fire pits and grills. Bathrooms look dated but were clean with quick warm water. Small RV store was well stocked. Owners were friendly, informative and constantly working. I'll come back. We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is nicely located next to the river. Beautiful setting. A little pricey, but I believe that being close to the resort town warrants the cost. Was a little concerned when we checked in: parked by the pool. Above ground, vinyl type, back yard pool with sides sagging. Sites were a little crowded. The staff was very pleasant: nice people.

My husband and I absolutely loved the park. We stayed right by the river, which was amazing! The park was full but quiet. Didn't feel crowded at all. Beautiful views, close to Pagosa Springs. Very pet friendly, even some some folks walking their cat's on leashes :) The only reason I didn't give the park a 10 is because there is no doggy park, otherwise this place is perfect!

Let me start by saying that winter, cold-weather camping is not for everyone. But if you are like us, and enjoy snow skiing and are adapted to winter camping, Pagosa Riverside is a must stay place! They keep about 8 spaces open during the winter, snow-plowed, with full hookups (50 amp). These 8 spaces are "first come, first serve" and are a flat rate of $30/day. Management, workers, and the owner are very friendly and want to assure you are comfortable and happy. The campground is beautiful, a wonderful setting along the San Juan River. In the winter there is only one pull-thru space, and our 38' fifth wheel was too long for that space. We had a back-in spot that was well plowed and the utilities shoveled clear. Management and the owner were very busy with remodeling the office building and bathrooms. I would guess that the office and bathrooms look very nice and updated in preparation for the warm weather campers! If you do winter camp, be aware that the San Juan River Valley usually is 10 degrees colder at night than Pagosa Springs due to the cold air descending from Wolf Creek Pass. We are definitely looking forward to visiting Pagosa Riverside next winter (and skiing Wolf Creek) and seeing the friends we made with Management and the Owner! And, who knows, we might even be able to warm weather camp there sometime! We highly recommend Pagosa Riverside Campground! We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are 50 years or older, check out the Grey Wolf Ski Club! Grey Wolf members get a two-tier discounted rate on Wolf Creek season lift tickets plus many social functions and a weekly Tuesday gathering at a local pub.

The Hot Springs are very well worth a visit! There are one-time, weekly, and monthly passes.

There are many winter activities around Pagosa Springs: hot air balloons, cross-country ski trails, snow shoe trails, snowmobiles, a winter festival, etc.

Forget how much we paid but it was reasonable. Extended our stay by several nights because we loved this campground so much. Stayed in site 80 on the San Juan River. Riverfront sites are close of course but if you're lucky enough to get one it will be worth the extra money and proximity to your neighbor. Lovely view, lovely to hear the water tumbling over the rocks. Lovely, in October, to watch the leaves falling from the riverfront trees. Nice paths to walk around the campground and by the river. VERY pleasant and helpful work-campers. Laundry clean. Would definitely return! We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our decide stay at this campground. Power was 121, satisfactory. Our site woven looked a pond next to the river. The pond is a bit muddy but there are a couple paddle boats for kids. Sites are reasonably large with some privacy. We are in a pull thru. Office staff was very nice as we checked in quite early. Would stay here again even though it's pricey.

Very enjoyable park. Had site 70 (only one with a cement pad) right across from the pond for extended stay but also stayed in river site a couple of nights. Dee-lightful. Wifi was RV park wifi but they really tried to keep it running. Staff are excellent. Sites are reasonably spacious and level. Can't think of anything that would make this park much better. Close to town, quiet, scenic, peaceful, good utilities, good value. We camped at Pagosa Riverside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
