This place is cute. Small. Friendly. Regular sites are close to each other. The facilities are clean. The location is about 27 minutes from Durango. Looked to be the prettiest setting compared to other closer rv parks. Close enough to major attractions. There are site close to the hwy that are pretty noisy. Best sites are off the pond areas at the back of the park.

This is one of the most beautiful parks/settings I've encountered. It is only 16 miles east of Durango on the Pine River. The grounds and flowers are a wonder. The staff is attentive and helpful at every turn. We have stayed here 7 of the last 8 summers and it is our park of choice. There are lots of trout in the private pond so you can fish without a license (catch & release). There are meadows to run your dog, streams and waterfalls, a swimming hole, and lots and lots of flowers. We have enjoyed family reunions there three times. There's lots of room to walk and play. If you don't want to cook, there are several restaurants only 3 or 4 miles away. Several times during the summer there are park potlucks. The owners are onsite and ready to make you right at home. At times we have stayed and then left our 5th wheel there to visit family and friends. When we returned, the RV was back in our site and waiting for us. My experiences at this park have always been very positive. Watch out, this place is addictive. You won't want to leave.

This is a truly beautiful spot. The people running the park were very friendly. We made our reservation months in advance and were meeting friends from another state. We had requested sites next to one another but were told there were none available. We booked a pull through site, but upon arrival were told we had a back in site. The person told us that since we wanted sites next to one another, all that were available were back in sites.We were told they were also beautiful sites right at the creek.
Indeed the sites were beautiful,however they were located right beside the highway. The noise was deafening all day and all night. When we sat at the picnic table to eat dinner the first night, termites swarmed all over our feet.
The bath house was spotlessly clean but only had two showers and one was not operational. The water pressure was non existent and you had to set the knob all the way to cold, otherwise you were scalded. An attendant, came in and out of the bath house while it was
in use, to fill up water buckets to water the multitude of flowers around the property. Needles to say that played even more havoc with water pressure, not to mention the lack of respect for privacy for people using the facilities.
The laundry was very nice and many machines to use. A gentleman who was residing at the park for several months informed me that all the machines had just been repaired , after many complaints. His comment was the property owners were more concerned with the flowers and grounds than maintaining the infrastructure and providing for the needs of the people staying at the park.
This is a park we would love to return to if we are able to book a specific site in the back of the park. Again, I feel Good Sam needs to assess the review of this park.

Pretty place, but they have more rules than kindergarten. Don't expect to find them in writing, that'd eliminate the surprise. No pet bags, and they seem to have removed trashcans this year so you can visit the single dumpster more often.

Very nice Park in a country setting, and lots of flowers. Several ponds with fish actually in them, I caught one. I had a need for a shady site and they accommodated that for my pull-thru. The Park was close to a highway, so there was some traffic noise. That same road led directly to Durango, and I chose this Park for the country setting. There is a large field, where the dogs can run.

We spent four nights here, with family, sightseeing in the Durango area. The location was a little far from Durango, but acceptable. The park is beautiful, with multitudes of flowers, streams, and ponds. Our sites were pretty close together, but backed up to a stream, which was wonderful to listen to in the evening. We enjoyed trout fishing in the ponds. The showerhouse only had 2 showers, but they were big and clean. The town of Bayfield had lots to offer for shopping, dining, or necessary errands. We enjoyed our stay.

Great scenic location, friendly staff--our site was very small and close to other campers. We were unable to put out our awning as it would have butted up to next-door. Highway noise was a bit much. Restrooms were adequate and clean, only 2 stalls for showers (ladies), and one the shower head was removed. No ice available when we stayed. Price seemed high for the space.

We had a wonderful site next to the creek running through the park it was awesome. The site was mostly level with just a slight reparking we were level no adjustments. Beautiful flowers and well maintained. Our Motorhome is a 24' no slide. We will stay again next time we head up to Colorado.

This has got to be the best "drive in last minute" space we have ever stumbled across. I do recommend reservations, in case you are not as fortunate as we were. The staff worked extra hard at re-arranging things to get us a full hook up for 3 nights. This may sound generic but you will not be disappointed by this RV destination. I travel with my work dogs to different states, and normally the dog area is nasty. They are on top of being clean, and super dog friendly, with well manicured landscapes even for the dogs. A giant field with a fully stocked creek running off the river and a crazy amount of hummingbirds and feeders all over the park. We have not run into any bugs, you feel completely safe, clean, and you can relax! There is no after hours rowdiness, it is quiet, calm and honestly a destination I will look forward to coming back too.

We enjoyed our stay. We have a grandson with autism and he no longer liked fishing. He was excited to be able to catch large fish. He is now looking forward to fishing again. I loved that it was catch and release (no fish for me to clean). It is a beautiful park with trails and water surounding the park. We even had an escort which showed us our parking area. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful.

Let me start with the good:
1. Grounds very lovely in the front ( street view)
2. Bathroom clean but only 2 showers and 2 toilets. Suggest going very early or late
Now for the not so good:
1. No wi-fi was working for the 5 days we were there, all electricity went out when we first arrived in 100 degree weather. Great
2. No doggy bags supplied. No fencing to let your dog run like the web site says
3. We were in the "50's" row packed in like rats. If you were lucky enough to be on the river great we were not!
4. No swimming. Have a small spot in the river for children. If you want your child swimming next to where people are fishing with hooks. ( saw this myself).
5. Road noice. Right on the road
6. My sister was told not to use supermarket trash bags. Why not. That is crazy!!!
7. Had to ask for a picnic table and my sister received 1/2 of one.
8. No firepits at all. Means no campfires or marshmallows!!!
Overall for $48/nite this was horrible!!!
Would never go back here!

We spent 10 days at this park and the stay was great. A little noise from the highway; nothing we couldn't live with. The staff was friendly and very accommodating.
