Back off the beaten path on lake benbrook. Tends to dry up in the summer, but when flooded, can garner some big bass. Better kayak area than boat area. Boathouse closed
I stayed here because It was closest to downtown Durango and I was bushed and ready for sleep. After staying 14 days in the backwoods, it was nice to get shower in an actual building…. but I must admit, after paying nothing to park and stay in the woods for 14 days, it hurt my feelings to pay $75 for one night here.
On the down side, it is an Upscale RV park that if your not in a prevost bus, you are out of place. The whole time I was putting up, I was getting funny looks for my popup a frame trailer. Either way, they were nice people in the office/restaurant and have a nice rv park. Little too much $$ for my pocket book.
Awesome place to launch your boat or kayak. Great fishing usually, killer sunsets. Good central location to get anywhere on the lake fast. Popular fishing tournament spot.
I enjoyed my stay, but although you are right on the Colorado river(20 ft from water) on one side and the gulf of Mexico on the other, you are also shoehorned into a small rv spot. Very nice people and although it's not my style, it is worth a stay.
