Showers and bathrooms were very clean and well stocked.

Fires were allowed. Picnic tables and fire rings provided

Great views - car camping

Great spot right off the road! This spot had plenty of space to park our car (a small RV would fit too). Great views and some shade.

Best of all the dispersed camps sites in our opinion.

Worsts place we have stayed in a lot of traveling.

All the decent campgrounds were full. We needed a place to dump and fill water. WiFi is terrible and cell service is on extended network. It’s by the river but you can’t see for all the weeds.

Not a KOA but still solid

This campground was a very present experience. The river was right behind our site and there was a small amount of privacy. Pool was superb. My only complaints are that the bathhouse I went to (old one) was pretty rough. Also I’m convinced the wifi isn’t actually connected to anything. There is 0…

Peaceful and comfortable

This RV campground is beautiful and peaceful. The river flows next to the grounds and the trees provide lovely shade. The campground is super clean and well maintained. The hosts, Bill and Julia, are friendly and welcoming. The other campers follow the rules and are friendly too. Lots of folks who…

Colorado Atlantis

The campground is really just a parking lot overlooking the lake. The view is very nice though and so is the reliable breeze. Don’t bank on the showers working, they were not in-op when we visited.

Perfect Dispersed Camping Spot

We had this place all to ourselves over Memorial Day Weekend. It was lovely and quiet with only a few cars passing by. You can walk down to the river (a little treacherous but definitely doable!) and it’s a short drive away from a lot of neat hikes. It’s also not too far from town. 10/10 would…

Best spot in Durango

This campground is amazing! As stated before, this is no longer a KOA campground, but it’s one of the best I’ve ever stayed at. Outside of Durango, away from the road, all you hear is the river running by. The sites are all large and the grounds are immaculate. We stayed 5 nights and were very sad…

Nice, quiet, widely spaced sites, but lake almost nonexistent

We stayed in Blanco CG site 52 for 6 days in a 36’ Class A with a Cherokee Trailhawk tow. The park has gone to great lengths to make the sites level and most looked like they were. Ours was very level and I almost didn’t need to level at all. All of the sites are spacious and quite widely spaced.…

Quiet park just off of the road

Nice campground with easy access. The park was clean, and the staff was very friendly. RV sites on the river seemed close together, but the sites next to the mountain felt more private.

NO LONGER KOA

This place is no longer a KOA but still is the best we spoke with the new owners while we were here the transition was a rough one for them. They were very apologetic about it which for us there were no hiccups. We payed for a premium sight that backs right up to the river. ABSOLUTELY beautiful.…

Nice shady camp ground

Very sweet camp hosts that provided water. Clean bathrooms and large camp spots. There is horse/cattle stalls if you need. High elevation and lots of shade. Was a little chilly at night in early may. Close to nice climbing off the 550. Also close to above ground hot spring.
