“Best. Campsite. Ever. (in a campground)”

Reviewed May 04, 2018

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend last year, and it was packed. I became aware of the campsite LITERALLY the day bookings opened up for that weekend, and, on a whim, booked the last lakefront site (probably because it's a dry site - no hookups). But it was amazing. It's a "pull-through" - although it's a very tight fit if you have slides (after booking, I saw the fine print that this site is not suitable for slides, but we figured if it came to it - we could keep the road side slide in), as it's more like a "pull-aside" on the road out of the campground. But aside from that - the site itself was spectacular. On the lake, with lake access for kayaks/canoes/SUP's down the hill from the site. Amazing views from sun up to sundown. Nice level area with fire ring & picnic table. Short walk to the bathrooms if you need them. Nice tent pad. Lots of space. Only downside is that sometimes folks will walk through your campsite to get down to the lake - even though they could easily walk around it. We never saw the camp hosts during our stay. Quiet at night. 15 minute drive north of Durango, or head north on Hwy 550 (Million Dollar Highway) for a scenic drive. Cannot wait to go back...

We spent the Memorial Day weekend at this lovely lakeside campground. Even though we showed up without reservations and couldn't get a spot with a lake view, it was very nice. Despite the fact that it was a holiday weekend and the campground was full, it was very quiet in the evenings. Our site was large and level with a big tent pad that we used as our front yard. We were surrounded by Aspen trees and could not see our nearest neighbor. The campground is on a tiered hillside and most of the sites are fairly far apart. It was a little too early in the year to go swimming in the lake, but our dog enjoyed it very much. We also enjoyed the two hiking trails that start at the campground. The only negative was the lack of easy lake access. The water side sites had their own path to the lake, but everyone else had to use the fishing access- which was not convenient for us with our dog. Other than that it was a great campground to spend the weekend and we would definitely stay there again.
