Beautiful mountain views, trails and only 10 minutes to downtown Durango! 35 acre gated community property with miles of private trails to explore. Friendly pets welcome. Complementary firewood fire restrictions permitting. Owners live on property and are available to help or answer questions. Great setup and location.Get settled and enjoy miles of trails starting from your RV site, stay in the woods and enjoy the relaxing evening and beautiful views or head into downtown Durango only 10 minutes away., about 5 miles to main street downtown. This 35 acre lot is joined by another 70 acres that all has trails winding throughout to be explored, there are also other nearby trails that will take you far into national forest and blm land. The spot is 20’x40’ so there is plenty of room on the road base pad to hang out. I wouldn’t recommend a full size RV up here just because it would be hard to get in and out.

Will stay here again!
What a fabulous place to camp! Michael and his family are warm and welcoming. The gravel site is just down from their house. Yes, it can be tricky to get in to. But Michael backed our trailer (24 foot) in for us and nailed it! They provided a fire pit and wood for some magical nighttime fires. We enjoyed the hiking trails on the property. From here, you've got quick and easy access to Durango and Mesa Verde. Next time we're in the area, we'll absolutely stay here again.

Very kind and communicative!
We weren’t able to make it to the site due to weather hours out - but Michael was SO kind and understanding when we had to cancel. Even though we didn’t stay, I wanted to leave a review about how sweet and communicative Michael was with us! :)

Amazing Views!
We loved camping at Michael’s property. Beautiful views and communication was excellent. Location was the highlight as it was very close to the main town area. Thanks again for the wonderful stay and hospitality! Truly an unforgettable stop on our 2 month roadtrip.

Michael was super communicative and helpful, esp. when I got stuck in some really serious mud from the snow melt. He also hooked us up with a ton or good firewood! The site was pretty small, but had some pretty good views. We could hear the Durango/Silverton steam engine in the morning, which was pretty awesome. However, we could also hear dogs barking pretty regularly since we were really close to their house (which I wasn't aware of in the pics or description). Convenient location as well.

Michael is the most gracious hipcamp host!! The site is in a forest, lots of flickers, hummingbirds, wild turkeys everywhere. Minutes from Durango, beautiful location. Coupla comments 1. Road sign is tiny, legible from one side only, but when we got lost Mike drive down to meet us. 2. You will be backing up a really steep drive into the site so make sure your vehicle can make it, Mike had to back us in we couldn’t make it. 3. It is close to their house- we found it comforting, but some might want more distance. Overall we had a beautiful stay, ate at the little table they have out for campers, our dog loved running in the woods.
