We have stayed here 3 x's, both in a Camping spot and a cabin by the river. Each time, we have called and planned accordingly. It makes for a better stay, Plus it saves u time! They have movies, gameroom, laundry on site and a heated pool!

My third stay and will stay every Sept. It is right on the river in the trees, very quiet, with a variety of RV slots including a couple of very deep slots so no need for me to drop my trailer off my 43ft MH which eliminates a big hassle. The trees block Sat reception but the cable is OK....

We came in without a reservation on a Tuesday afternoon and had our choice of 3 lovely spots but none on the river. I would definitely go back but would reserve a riverside space or rent one of the cabins on the rivers. (Although, after reading the previous review regarding their trouble with the cabin, I will be sure everything...

As you can imagine, we have people that will cause damage and then deny it. Those are thankfully few and far between though. Thanks for your feedback...we look forward to seeing you soon! We are now taking reservations for our 2017 season, so you may want to make your reservation today!

We rented an owners cabin at the last minute for a weekend stay in August 2016. On the first night (Friday) the heater was set at 86 and we could not set it lower. There were no linens for the guest beds. The next morning, we discovered we had no hot water for showers. The wifi service was very slow...

This is our second visit to Riverside resort....this place is beautiful....clean....and family friendly. There is not a bad spot in the entire park....they are all beautiful. The owners are very attentive, especially at keeping the campground clean with trash pick up every day. Will return for sure.

Spent the weekend here helping my daughter get moved into Fort Lewis College. Beautiful property with plenty of trees. We camp in a Clark Vertex hammock and it requires three trees in a triangle. I explained this when I booked and they had just the right spot. When we were running late, they called and let us know we were...

We are good sam members and when booking asked if they had any discounts and they (Mary) said no. Never mentioned they had Veteran Discounts of which my husband is. When Pam (another office person) mentioned it to a couple I asked about it she stated she did not know who to do a reversal but if I came back...

Please contact our General Manager Kelly Scott at 917-247-4499 so that we can get this resolved for you. The $5 per day pet fee is not only for bags, but for damages and cleanup of pet droppings throughout the resort.

Nice, quiet and well maintained. Much better than Alpen Glen and United campgrounds. A little farther out of town but well worth it. Nice store as well. We did t use the showers but they looked nice. Great river sites and river access. Friendly staff with good amenities...cable and wifi.

The one room cabins on the river are truly rustic but are clean and right on the river. They only have electricity, heat and beds. Even though the temperatures dropped into the low 50's, we never turned on the heater. The showers and toilets are always clean and the personnel are very helpful. They also have a tent area and...

This property is a combination of cabins, rv parking and a few tent sites about 15 minutes north of Durango on the Animas river. If you can put up with the view and noise of godzilla sized "rv homes" running their power generators...well then the quaint log cabins, many above the shore line of the river, are a lovely break...

I'm glad you came out to camp with us for a bit, and it's nice to hear that the Animas river called to you. We do have a mix of RVs, regular tents, and cabins; and we've seen most of our guests all get along just fine. It's good to know you like the value we're offering over the other...
