The people who work here are awesome! They do everything to help you and are so friendly! They also plan fun events if you want to participate! Some people have complained that the sites are too close to each other, but they're not really. Plus, in another campground in Durango, where our friends stayed, it was super tight and chaotic....

Not sure how this park got such a high rating but it is just OK. We are full time RVers having travelled in 46 states and have stayed in many parks and this park is very tight. They have back to back spaces so no privacy. We barely have room to park our car and we are very close to... More

I travel through here a couple of times a year for work and I just have to say that Alpen Rose RV Park is one of my favorite stops. If you've spent any time in Durango then you know it's absolutely beautiful in every direction, including your views from Alpen Rose RV park. You are close to town for shopping... More

Second time to stay here. The spots up the hill under the trees are quite nice. Bath facilities are good, but need some updating. My service experiences have been very good, but I put some effort into creating the relationship, upfront. They need more gravel for leveling in some spaces(#21 is better than #17). I don't like a lot of... More

This is a very pretty area in the Animas Valley. Convenient to a lot of attractions. Problem is the manager who is drunk and rude on a regular basis. The only thing we see him doing is sitting on the porch trying to get everyone to drink with him. This park is so antiquated the sites are horrible. You can... More

We stayed at Alpen Rose June 28-July 5, 2014. We checked in Saturday night. Sunday the pool was out of commission, and draining into the only other area my kids could play in...the playground. This was a huge selling point for us and our kids, so that was disappointing. We had to go to the Rec Center in town to... More

I have planned big family outings there and never can I get a reservation for a site that I request. Same old thing, but the last time I stayed they pushed me off into the grass with the bugs. Across the way the site we had requested was vacant for almost the whole time we were there. That was it... More

This is an excellent rv park. Well run, clean, efficient staff. Nice views of the mountains in the front section, and tall trees in the back section. Level pads with grass between spaces. Good clean restrooms, showers and laundry. Park has store with some food items and rv supplies. You can order pizza nightly, and they will deliver it to... More
