Summertime in Durango, Colorado.

We are planing a trip from Dolores, Telluride, Ouray to Durango. We have reservations on the Dolores river, in Telluride and Little Molis Lake (on top of the world) but are looking for a RV park either on or close the the Animas River north of Durango to finish off the two weeks. Any suggestions

Alpen Rose seems to be popular in past posts but we've never stayed there. We've always stayed at Haviland Lake national forest campground just north of Alpen Rose. The lake is nice for fishing and our 40' motorhome can fit in 'some' sites. We usually stay up on the hill at the electric sites because we stay 2 weeks and it's shaded so we wouldn't get much power from our solar. There are some nice waterfront sites, too but aren't electric. You can view and pick your site via the reservation site. It accepts the Golden Age (Senior) Passport if you have one - 1/2 off. It's not far from Durango.

We have stayed at the Alpen Rose RV park as Twogypsies described. It is a very nice place to stay, but the next time we will take their advice and try the park they stayed at instead for something different. If you like trains, the United CG has the Durango-and-Silverton narrow gauge railroad tracks running right thru their CG. Here are the links to both CG's:

Whatever you do, enjoy the adventure!

We stayed at United CG for a couple of days on a trip thru Durango on our way to Utah. Nice place. Got cool pics of the Durango-Silverton train as it came through the park. I would stay there again.

Check out the dispersed camping at Lizard Head Pass. Free and beautiful.
