While this park is the closest to Durango it leaves much to be desired. The layout is terrible. You directly face your neighbors next to you. It's like having adjoining hotel rooms with strangers. When you have traveled all day and want to spend a few relaxing days sitting out in this nice area, the last thing you want is to have strangers in your face 5 ft. away. It seems too that the staff makes an effort to "group" units together even when the have the option to spread units out.
The staff was gruff and quickly pointed out the rules/regs. "Barney" the maintenance man was always roaming the grounds rudely enforcing the rules. Not a repeat for us. If you are planning to spend a few days in Durango and want just a "little" privacy, you will want to go elsewhere. The fact that the train runs through the park is no biggie and no reason to locate here. Finally, the bathroom/shower facilities were far below the needed capacity for a park with this many spaces and getting through the lock mechanism was challenging for all. They need to invest an update this facility....expanded bathrooms and get rid of the terrible face to face layout.
Update on Power
Check the Power
I always check the Electric Power to make sure there is enough voltage and is wired correctly. When I checked it was around 114 volts and that was OK since I was not running the AC. Very clean and very friendly. They do have side by side hookups. The shuttle is very nice.
Shuttle to town
We do not carry a toad, so that fact that a shuttle came by the campground regularly to take us to downtown Durango was a pleasant surprise. And the driver took us right to the office on the return trip! There seemed to be a lot of long-termers here, lots of pull-through sites. Quite flat, graveled sites. Bathrooms were okay, but not exceptional. The train to Silverton passes by the edge of the property twice a day, but you can't get on.
