We paid extra for a shaded spot with grass. We drove up to a spot with a dead, sad tree and a small patch of fake grass. The area surrounding the grounds didn't seem all that safe. We saw at least 4 cops patrolling the area in one trip to the store. This was our first and last time to stay at a KOA, especially this one.
Beautiful campground with great access to trails all around and lake. Very quiet: almost too quiet with an early bedtime. Mostly retirees. Fun events, such as Bingo, music and food. The restaurants around area have spectacular food: seriously good food. Not close to any town really so if you are not hiking/fishing it can get boring after a week. We loved it though and would come again.
Absolutely beautiful campground. Riverfront is the only way to go, though and it is very expensive ($70+). If you are not riverfront you don't really have access to the water at all and the spots are tight. Spots riverfront are a lot bigger. Very convenient location to Durango and Silverton. The Wi-Fi was terrible on northside, but was better elsewhere. Great pool area, store, and lodge with a movie playing each night. Has an ice cream stand but it is only open on the weekends. We would certainly stay here again but only riverfront.
