This place is very pretty and quiet - right on the Animas River coming down the mountains from Silverton. Plan on a 20 minute trip into Durango - about 13 miles from downtown - so get your supplies in Durango before you go. They do have a little store with a few things - no beer.
We stayed in one of the Member cabins - which are absolutely perfect with most of the comforts of home - 2 TV's which didn't get turned on, shower, kitchen with stove/microwave/fridge.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Shaded by towering pines, this San Juan Mountains campground nestles against the Animas River 12 miles north of Durango. Many of the campsites and cabins lie just steps from the broad, rock-bottom river popular with anglers and kayakers. For breathtaking alpine scenery, take a day trip on the steam-powered Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad or drive the 232-mile San Juan Skyway Scenic Byway. This campground features a large pool, game room, basketball court, pet area and lots of fun for kids. At sunset, grab a sundae at the ice cream parlor or a cup of coffee at the espresso shop, then head for the outdoor movie theater. The café serves breakfast and dinner. ... more less
