Family spent two nights in a single room cabin. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and answered all questions about Mesa Verde NP for us. We were escorted to our cabin and found it to be very clean with air conditioning. The bathrooms and showers were also very clean and got no complaints from my wife or daughter! We enjoyed a pancake breakfast at the caboose which was very reasonable. Laundry was available and a very nice touch as well. The kids enjoyed the new pool and the mining experience with Ruth. Ruth went out of her way to teach the kids all about minerals and gems. I had no idea my children had an interest but she really got them engaged. We would go back to this KOA in a moment's notice. Was just a great experience for us all.

We have stayed at Koa's all across the US and this was one of the worst. Tent sites are tiny and very noisy, not to mention way overpriced! I would advise to go somewhere else. Says they were 2012 award winner but don't be fooled. People were friendly but location is AWEFUL!

My family of three recently stayed in one of the 'deluxe cabins' at the Durango, CO KOA. It was clean and well kept. The entire campground reflected the same thing, a very well kept campground. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. There was easy access to local activities including: rafting the Animas River, horseback riding and shopping in the beautiful downtown Durango. I would highly recommend for camping of all types; tent, cabin or RV/trailer.
We would stay there again, no questions, There are daily events, breakfast and pizza are a plus!
Movies every night for the kids and a great gift/snack shoppe.

We spent just one night here, on our way back to San Antonio. The staff showed us where our site was, we ordered a pizza, which they make on site, and got it delivered. NICE. They have a nice pool and open space to take a walk. There was a huge wildfire in Durango that day, started by lightening (same storm we experienced in Animas Forks that day). The entire mountain behind the Home Depot was on fire. We could see it safely from the KOA. It was out by morning. I really like to see owners who put their heart into their camp. There is a great little garden just outside of the showers. If you have to stand and wait for someone, why not check out what is growing while you wait. They are also a very green camp with recycling containers available. We bought a cool tie dye t shirt in their store and made a road trip shirt with it, writing all the KOAs we had been to on the trip. He still wears that shirt. Nice place, easy access, easy to find.

Lots of friendly workers, very clean, great amenities--the kids loved it! Surprising amount of shade makes it feel spread out even though it is a bit crowded. Can hear the highway noise but actually makes it a bit easier to sleep. We loved and will definitely stay there when in Durango again.

Stayed in a cabin for almost a week while relocating to Durango. The campground was just opening for the season but Carol and her crew were very welcoming to my wife and I. We would be sure to stay there again on our next trip. The cabins are very nice and a lot cheaper then staying at a motel. Especially in the Durango area.

Stayed here one night in "camping cabin" and found it very enjoyable. Little creek running by the cabin was great, pancakes in the morning were great, owner and staff very friendly. Nice pool and beautiful sunset from pool. Would stay here again.
