Previous posts are accurate. Over spring break the place was packed, but as soon as Monday came around the CG emptied out and was peaceful. Off of the beaten trail. Verizon kept dropping from a good 3G to a poor 1xRTT even with my external antenna and booster. Was useable but annoying at times. Park was very clean, but the beach nearby was filthy. People just camped on the beach and then left their garbage. I don't get it. We'd come back if in the area.
Nice Park. We are not fans of RV Parks and prefer State Parks or boon-dock when possible. But, this place was quiet, clean, and comfortable. We got the last site here and I think it was one of the nicest. Very friendly staff. We'd stay here again if in the area.
It was hard for me to rate this park since we wound up leaving before staying overnight. We reserved 2 nights during Texas Spring Break Week. When I made the reservation I explained to the lady that we have a 37' fifth wheel (like I always do). Upon arrival, she seemed concerned to learn that we had that large a rig. There were only a few sites open (they assign them to you upon arrival). Long story short, all of the sites were short, but I could have squeezed into them. The big problem was they had thick tree limbs overhanging about 12' off of the ground. We are about 13'-4" tall. Consequently we had to leave and try and find a new place to stay. The girl in the office could not process a refund and said a check would be mailed. Next day I get a call from the park asking if we left early since no one was in our site. I explained all over what happened and was again promised a refund. Seems like a nice park but better tell them 4 times what you are driving or you might not get in.
The NFS says 32' max length but don't let that scare you away. We have a 37' 5W and there were tons of places that we could fit. If you are set up to boon-dock and like to live that way - you'll love Lake Roosevelt. It was quiet quiet quiet. We had a good 3g Verizon signal. Even though many of the loops were closed our loop was only about 15% filled. In summer I imagine it might be a different place but during the late Winter it was wonderful. Lots to do in the area. Two dumps up at Cholla CG - about 5 miles - but only open Thurs-Sunday (two days each) 10am to 2pm. Filled our fresh water from the numerous spigots into a bladder tank. We stayed here 2 weeks - next time will be longer. Much longer.
A nice NF CG just a few miles west of Durango. If you don't like dirt roads or some washboard then stay away. But if you can get past that and like a quiet spot in the woods but close to town this is a great hidden gem. It is about 5 miles outside of town and the pavement ends about 2 miles before the CG. They are supposed to scrape the road twice a year but the hosts said that they hadn't done it this year as of June... (no surprise as the washboard was pretty bad in spots) There is one loop with electric sites. Most are heavy treed but you can still get satellite from some. The vault toilets were spotless and the host were very engaged and super friendly. They stopped by each night to check up on us and inform us as to the fire restrictions. I thought my wife was not going to like it due to the dirt roads but it turned out to be one of her favorites and we wound up staying a week making day trips to Mesa Verde, Telluride and Silverton. I give it a 10 for location. I took away points due to the dirt roads.
