“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

First impression was great. The staff inside were super friendly. Check in was quick and easy. We were directed to our site and left alone the rest of the weekend, which was GREAT! We were advised of the many activities and meals they offered, however, due to our schedule we didn't participate in anything. The bathrooms and shower stalls were clean. The traffic from the highway was barely noticeable. The only negative part to our stay was a neighboring house with a hound dog who sounded like it had laryngitis. The owners were kind enough to not let it stay outside for long periods of time.

The nicest campground we stayed during our 3 week vacation. Fresh herbs! Super nice people working there! Take advantage of the pancakes at the Caboose! Slept in that day and didn't have to cook! They also have homemade pizza delivered to camp!

We make the trip up to Durango from Santa Fe two or three times a year, and when pulling our small camper with our motorcycle, we'll stay at the Durango KOA. We've always found it comfortable and clean.

The campground is a little ways out of town, so expect a 10 minute drive to groceries and necessities, and 20 minutes to downtown. Though, compared to some other places we've been, this separation improves security and cuts down on noise and busyness.

The spots are closer together than optimal, but not aggressively so. The camp is well-treed in some areas, so you get a modicum of privacy. We've not found the campground overly noisy, and it is away from the highway enough to keep the traffic noise to a minimum.

For campground camping, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Durango KOA.

Room Tip: Reserve early and request a spot back in the trees

The Host upgraded us to the Studio cabin which we didn't expect but was very nice and loaded with amenities. Shower, bath, frig, beds and furniture! This is a very nice place and very friendly people.
The next morning we woke up to hot coffee and a beautiful view of the San Juan mountains after a snow fall the previous night.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a map of the kamp ground! There isn't a fitness center or swimming pool but I...

First of all, I have to say that I loved staying here. We stayed in a beautiful cabin with bathroom and absolutely adored it. It was very clean and nice. I would go back again for sure. The cabin was off the road and very quiet. I could see some of the tent sites as we walked around the campgrounds and could tell that those could have some noise issues. The reason for coming here is to get away from it all, so I don't want to complain about the internet too much. But it was very bad and I only could use it once during a night stay. Please KOA , try to get a better provider. I would give it a five star rating had it not been for that.

Room Tip: ask for sites away from highway

We stayed here for only one night in a 30 foot RV. We arrived at the campground right as it was starting to get dark and left out about 7 am to ride the train. Dan (i believe this was the gentleman's name in the office) was gracious enough to put our reservation down when I spoke to him over the phone, as we were still an hour or so away and let us pay when we arrived. We weren't here long but it did look very well kept and like it had alot of amenities. The campground did have alot of trees, which was very nice, but seemed to have some tight turns and tight spaces. We did also notice that they had cabins you could rent. We did enjoy taking pictures of the very large pumpkins that they had growing in their garden near the front office. We would stay here again.

Biggest complaint was the internet. You have to log in again every few minutes. It was quite annoying. The laundry rooms are quite small for the number of spaces they have. We stayed in mid-September and it was still difficult to get a washing machine. Of course, one lady had 6 loads.... We were not bothered by the road noise. We were in the "200" block and it would have been nice to have had bathrooms and laundry down in that area. They have quite a few dog areas which are fenced. I think one of our dogs kept eating something in the dog area, as he would throw up every time we returned to our RV. We never did catch him, so we can't be sure.
