I stayed at Lightner with my dog Sasha in July, 2012 for 3 days in camper cabin #1. I had a tent, but the cabins were so reasonable vs. tent sites, I opted for more room and protection from the elements. I cannot say enough great things about this campground, it's facilities and most of all staff. Joe and Cheryl were always helpful, warm, welcoming, and run a tight ship. The staff, mostly who reside there during the season, work constanly to maintain the restrooms, grounds, and every inch inch of the property. VERY clean. The laundry facilities were convenient and not expensive. The restrooms are cleaned several times a day. No complaints of noise, great sleeping weather in the summer in Durango. The afternoon mountain storms are quite lovely and don't last long and are great to watch from the porch of the cabin. Not a far drive at all (10 min) into town/main attractions, etc. Just far enough to maintain quiet privacy. A very beautiful setting.
My stay was so enjoyable that I am going to Durango on my honeymoon! I will continue to stay at Lightner Creek during every summer visit and will be back next summer for sure!More
