You might not give it 5 stars, but I found it very nice to be riverside with very nice bathrooms and excellent free WiFi. The staff run a very tight ship, but seem friendly, not obnoxious. The sites are close together and the place is a mixture of coarse gravel and grass. A fair number of tall shade trees.

We just love this campground. It is situated right on the San Juan River. Campers are friendly and courteous. Everyone picks up after their pets. The sites are large and very comfortable. The only glitch is the wifi, but most campgrounds are the same. If you sit by the office it works just fine. I definitely recommend staying here.

We stayed here last year in almost the same spot. Utilities are in good locations, but the spaces are small. You're right on the San Juan river, but it sure was muddy while we were there. They have spa tickets for $4 off the door price, which we've done both years. It's close to town: 10 minutes max. Not much... More

The reason we come around the night before to remind campers of the 11am checkout is that we have been having quite a few problems with campers (both tenters and RV'ers) not checking out on time - some leaving the park in the am to go to the springs or breakfast and not returning to leave until noon or later....

There is a small river that runs along the edge of this place and backs up to a tree lined hill. Location is prime! The people who work here are outstanding and friendly! That's what makes it such a great experience. Very dog friendly. Everyone has a dog.

We stopped here on the way home. We love Pagosa springs and wanted to be closer. The boys love fishing in the river and it is right here! There is also a lake and both have good sized fish. The smaller kids can play in the river as it is not too deep. The staff here are nice and accommodating.... More

This campground is a little deceiving from the road, you have to take a dirt drive around the front of someone's home and down a small grade, but once there, gear place to stay. Plenty of room for large campers and RV's. Full service office/camp store. When we checked in, to really sweet ladies were there, next thing we know... More

This was our second visit to this campground. We like that's it right on the river and close to town. You can even float to town if you want (if water's not too high) on tubes. Yes the campsites are a little close together but it never bothers us. It's easy to get in and out of the RV sites.... More

I was looking in tourbooks as my husband was piloting our RV through Wolf Springs Pass in CO. Pagosa Springs was the next town coming up on the map, picked out This park. It was sorta late when we pulled in, but the manager's office was still open, unlike most other places we stopped. The park is right on the... More
