Long story short, my wife and I helped my cousin and his wife move from Anchorage, AK to Colorado Springs by driving vehicles. one of them being an RV. Once we got to Colorado Springs my cousin let us borrow his RV to explore Colorado. Hence, this review. I tried getting a reservation at the Durango KOA but they had... More

Most sites are shaded and fairly level. Staff was nice and helpful. Pool was clean and fun place to let the kids unwind. Enjoyed watching the Durango and Silverton narrow gauge train roll through 3 times each morning and afternoon.

We only stayed one night. The bathrooms were clean. Rv spots are tight but there are trees for shade. The campground is close to a hill so it gets shaded very nice in the evening. It also has a trolley stop so you don't have to drive into town if you don't want to unhook your RV. There was some... More

The Good: The Campground has spotless bathrooms, green grass, a comfortable heated pool, and some tree cover. They claim to have Wi-Fi, but any time I tried to connect, there was no internet service. The radio signal is strong, but no connection. They know this the office, but they do not care. The Bad: the owners do not know the... More

Came for the Durango "Dinosaur Train"(skip it and take the kids on the actual Durango Silverton steam train). Kinda passive-aggressive person checked me in. It's a dirt lot with trees, a couple spots have a river view. Cliffs are nice across the road. There is a pool,by the road,no lounge chairs or tables or umbrellas or any shade at all.... More

This is the only campground on the Durango and Silverton Railroad and the Animas River also runs nearby to make viewing from our big window very enjoyable. I swore I would never again stay here even as much as I like seeing the trains run through because the internet ranged from nonexistent to hopeful. Wife prevailed upon me so I... More

As mentioned in other reviews roads and sites are gravel I did have to use leveling blocks to get level. The sewer connection for your site is at the back of the site, so take this in to account or you may level twice! I did! Full hookup, no problems.the bath house was clean, although a bit dated. Didn't try... More

Sites are fairly level and spacing is about average for an rv park in a tourist area. Roads and pads are gravel, with some grass in between sites. Sites are not extremely long, but will accommodate TT's 5'rs and motor homes. Hookups worked good, but no cable. Some sites are satellite friendly and others not so much. Over the air... More

We enjoyed our stay at United. We relaxed for two nights before heading out back to Colorado. They closed for the season the days we left. The Silverton & Durango trains passed right in front of our rig in the morning and late afternoon. Got some great pictures. Getting in and out from the road was close but easy enough.

We've stayed here multiple times from 1-4 nights. Very clean bathrooms though a bit dated. Swimming pool in the summer can sometimes be crowded with children. They keep the grounds very neat and groomed. Usually stay in site 64 which is a back-in but our camper view is from the back. The site is a bit unlevel but not bad.... More
