Durango, Colorado campground suggestions?

Looking for suggestions for a campground in/around Durango, Colorado for later this summer. I'll be hauling my 16' Airstream Bambi, so it's got to accomodate RVs...

I found this place, which seems to have excellent reviews:


Anyone have other suggestions?

There's a nice campground just north of town right on the river. I think it's a KOA.

I stayed here, http://www.5branches.com/index.html with my kids for 3 days about 2 years ago. The area has been affected by drought for several years and I'm not certain of the conditions now. I would stay there again based on my experience. Good Luck.

I've stayed here in Ouray .... great base camp to many close trails. Campground is about 5 miles north of town. Quite clean location.

I don't know anything about the area, but definitely download the "Allstays Camp & RV" App...It's the best App I've ever downloaded. It has a moving map with everything associated with road trips (fuel, food, parks, campgrounds, bridge clearances, businesses...). It's an awesome way to locate what you need. It'll also directly link you to any websites associated with the locations, so you can give it a look and see what you think about it before heading that way...It's been a great one for us!

Vallecito Lake may be outside your desired distance from Durango, but there is plenty of camping available there for your trailer.

Molas Lake between Durango and Silverton is a great spot.
