The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Although the campground is very well kept, it offered little in the way of amenities. The rec room is very small, hot and limited. They advertise themselves as a river resort but to access the river involves a long climb down old wooden stairs that are very hard to use and a long climb back up. The sign at the top of the stairs says use at your own risk. The river can not be seen from the camp sites. The volleyball court is overgrown and they offer no supplies other than ice and ice cream. It is on the highway (US160) so the traffic noise in considerable. The WiFi is good.
We only camped on night here but liked it so much we are coming back next week. The staff was very friendly and helpful and even showed us all the sites so we could pick what we liked. Not all sites are level, but they are working on it as it is under new ownership. The grounds, restrooms and showers are immaculate. The store is well stocked. I found access to the river quite easy for a little fishing. Now the bad news: sites will only be available through Oct. 31,2008. After that, this campground, Durango Riverside Resort, will be membership only. We like this place but it is true that the sites are tight. Don't know what the deal is with membership. Maybe that is why it is in such great condition.
The camping areas are not level and our site did not have water that worked properly. You could not turn on the water without getting soaked. There appeared to be only one trash container for the entire park and we were warned that the bears visit nightly. The WiFi is in a little room behind the bar and it smells like urine. The park in general was quite filthy and unkempt. There are two bathrooms and two showers for the entire campground and day guests so both were really dirty. We decided not to stay and moved on to Durango.
