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.
