Durango Riverside Resort – Durango, CO


Durango Riverside Resort is located 12 miles north of Durango, Colorado on US Route 550. The campground property is right on the Animas riverfront, but you are quite a distance from town.

The campground has RV and tent campsites, plus 19 rental cabins. WI-FI wireless internet access is available for a fee and cable TV hookups at all campsites (cost is included in the nightly rate), a convenience store, snack bar, souvenir store, and an ice cream parlor.

The location makes this campground a good base camp for exploring the area. Nearby is an alpine slide, ancient Puebloan ruins at Mesa Verde National Park, and the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Train.

Unfortuantely, in our opinion the staff was not very nice. They were so not nice, in fact we will not go back. Camping should be about good times, not focused on not nice campground staff.

    I had to pay $1200 deposit, my husband is ill and we can’t go, so they are keeping all our money… no refunds. Read your contract carefully! The owner’s cousin was in Rocky Point and told us how nice it was there! Ha Ha Wrong!

    That’s just not right! They should never do that. I will never reserve or stay at this place that does that.
    The same thing happened to me in Colorado a couple years ago, after I confirmed the reservation twice, the day we arrived they said sorry that space is taken.

    Yesterday was the beginning of our fourth year RV camping at Durango Riverside Resort (formerly KOA). This year for eighteen days.

    Even though we had a confirmed reservation six months in advance for riverside space sixteen including a $608 deposit, space sixteen was not available when we checked in. Hopefully, feedback from enough disappointed customers will result in much needed management improvements.

    If anyone knows the name of the absentee owner and how to contact this person, please forward to me.

    Great location.
