“Close to Durango & Challenging to Access ”

Overall Rating

We decided to camp here because of its proximity to Durango. However, big rigs beware!

The path in is rocky and steep. We towed a 16' trailer with a Ford Ranger, so it's not impossible.. we also saw someone easily tow a large horse trailer in. But I wouldn't recommend it for Class As or low clearance Class Cs. Four wheel drive is recommended.

The camping area was semi-private and had a good forest vibe. We received 4G LTE with AT&T and T-Mobile.

The drive to Durango isn't too bad (15 miles), we did it almost every day.

A ranger did swing by to take note of us and make sure no one overstayed the limit. We don't like official visitors, but we do appreciate stay limits being enforced.
