The Creekside cabin would have been more idyllic if there had been more water in the creek (but it was July after all). Overall, it was a nice location and it was amazingly quiet for being so close to the restroom and showers. The campground appeared clean and well looked after. The WiFi was spotty but listening to the creek... More

Spent 10 days in August. Campground is well maintained with a friendly staff. Nice pool & laundry facility. Wifi was unreliable. Bathrooms were clean but need some updating. Close to downtown Durango but off the beaten path. Will stay again. Jacuzzi would be a nice addition.

The staff was super and the campground was clean. We stayed in a camper cabin, very comfortable. The pool was clean and the bathroom/showers were perfect. Great place to stay, just outside of downtown Durango. Sara Doerr

This place had nice, clean bathrooms and other great amenities: a pool, playground, and laundry. The sites were nice and along the creek. We fell asleep to the sounds of the babbling creek. They also have fire pits you could rent if you wanted a fire.

Although we only spent one night here my family enjoyed this camground. We had friendly and helpful staff along with nice facilities. I had requested a site on the creek, which was flowing at the time of our visit. The creek was so great for my kids (11 and under) to play in. Well worth our stay.

Our family stayed here three nights of a three week trip through Southwest. The campground is in a beautiful mountain setting, support convenient to Durango, and the staff were awesome! Lots for kids to do including creek play, heated pool, and basketball court. Camp store was well stocked and everyone working was friendly, helpful and welcoming! Only cons were close... More

This campground was super cool and our housekeeping cabin by the creek was awesome! Everyone that works there is super nice, and the campground is quiet. The creek is awesome and it was great to be right next to it! They don't allow campfires so if you want to roast marshmallows you have to rent a propane tank thing for... More

After an unfortunate incident, we were forced to find not one, but two RV campsites at 7:30pm for a Thursday evening. I gave a call to Lightner Creek Campground and spoke to Robert and he said, come on over! We have two spots left and they are right next to each other! When we arrived, we explained that we are...

Nice size lots, some a bit too close to other campers especially if both sites are staying in a tent. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Kids enjoyed the pool, wifi does not have the greatest reception. Just a few miles to downtown Durango.

Stayed a week 7/11/16 - 7/18/16. Beautiful camp ground that is well maintained. There is also a security presence at all times that makes for a safe and secure experience. Everyone we talked to were more than friendly and welcoming. The pool was inviting as was the playground. Showers and rest rooms are kept immaculate. Although the individual sites are... More
