Every time my family and I travel to this part of Colorado we stay at this campground. Its has very friendly host and always willing to help. The tent area of the campground is large but if they aren't busy enough they have half of it closed off for watering. So sometimes it can seem crowded. But the tent spot is a good size. The grass is well maintained and thick and very shaded with large trees. The train comes around 8 am and very neat to watch it come by. Cell phone service is okay. You are kind of down in a valley off the highway so its spotty. Bathrooms are nice and clean. If you are used to camping and been to a variety campgrounds then they are pretty good. A bit crowded at times. It hasn't changed much since we've been going there, which was back in the mid 90s. We will come back again and again. We have friends stay there in a 5th wheel and they stay there every time they go to Durango. So I know they enjoy their stay too.
