Of all the KOA's that we have stayed in for the past 10 years of camping this was by far the most disappointing. It was rated high in our Woodall's book so thought we were safe, the sites are grass and are narrow, narrow with the utilities placed so that you are forced to face your neighbor door to door, thank goodness we had friends with us. The staff was semi-friendly, didn't really seem to care, the facility seemed clean but we did not wait around to see, we left after one night and will never stay there again.
This campground is one of the nicest that we have ever stayed at. Looking from the highway it looked like the RV's were packed in close together so were most delighted to large wide sites with gravel roads and sites, the views were wonderful with the river close by. The landscaping was the most attractive of our entire trip with flowers and bronze statues everywhere. The staff were most cooperative and friendly, we were surprised to see such a nice facility in the middle of "nowhere" on a beautiful scenic drive.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ridgway State Park. We stayed in two of their campgrounds, mainly because their requirements for reservations are so confusing that we came in to one for one night and then transferred to another. The views of the mountains are spectacular, the river is close for fishing and there are numerous hiking trails around the park. This was a highlight of our three week trip to the West from Mississippi. We will plan to return to this State Park.
We were very pleased with this KOA campground outside of Durango. The interior roads are dirt but are well kept, with many shade trees and beautiful views of the mountains. There is a cafe on the premises, serving breakfast, lunch and two nights there were BBQ's available. The personnel could have been a little bit more friendly but we will definitely return to this RV park.
