What a delightful place! We came from Arizona for a wedding in Durango and decided to pull our 5th wheel. This campground was the perfect place. Everything was extremely well maintained and the staff was wonderful. Thanks for the perfect family campground!

On our first trip with an RV, Lightener Creek Campground was our first stop. We stayed three nights. I can't say enough about the helpfulness of the staff, the cleanliness of the campground and the beautiful location. It far surpassed my expectations. Scott and Tom were especially helpful. We had a problem with our pressure relief valve for the hot... More

We loved staying at Lightner Creek Campground earlier this month. This beautiful valley was a treat to stay in, and the staff couldn't be any nicer or more accomodating! We appreciated the showers and laundry facilities. The staff was so helpful in answering our questions about hiking, fishing, the must-do Durango to Silverton Railroad, etc. So many of the campsites... More

Hi all- You wont be disappointed- Quite, clean well laid out and friendly helpful staff. The creek running through the campground is gorgeous! Just a short drive to Durango. Yet away from the noise and commotion.

Clean bathrooms, family friendly, out of the way but still close enough to town to get to things easily. We tent camped right by the creek and it sounded amazing! The creek was really flowing and it drowned out all other noises from neighboring campers. The bathrooms were very clean and had plenty of hot water for long showers :)... More

We stayed here in mid-September of 2014. The campground is very scenic, and very well maintained. Bathrooms are very clean. We enjoyed being out of town in a more rural area, but still just a short drive into Durango. We had a beautiful site, and since we weren't traveling during busy season, it wasn't crowded - we didn't have anyone... More

This is one of our favorite campgrounds anywhere, and we've been camping for over 40 years! It is under either new management or new ownership since we were there a few years ago. Rick and his wife are the folks at the desk and they are wonderful. Very helpful and Rick has some fascinating stories about four-wheeling back into the... More

Lightner Creek RV Park - Durango CO Spotless bathrooms, running creek, friendly folks, shade and sun. Just a perfect little home away from home. And we even got to experience rain which was a real treat for us California desert people. One suggestion: please put paper towels in the restrooms.

We stayed here in late September for a night. The office was listed as closed when we arrived on a rainy, cold afternoon, but as soon as we pulled into the parking lot, the staff came out, greeted us, and made sure we were escorted to our RV site, and that our every question was answered. This is one of... More
