Enjoyed Our Stay
We stayed three nights. Really enjoyed our stay. 3 adults, 2 dogs, big rig with toad. Plenty of room in pull through. Clean bathhouse. Off the highway into the woods. It was quiet and beautiful. Will return, probably for a longer stay.

Pulled into the lot at 4 pm on a Thursday afternoon. A few spots still available. Friendly owners, beautiful level sites. Lots of shade. A little on the pricey side, but well worth it. Pool, volleyball net and other activities for kids. There is a bar on grill on site as well. (We didn't go there but it seemed to be busy.)

We stayed in the fall of 2018. The sites were fantastic. It was raining and they had a wedding going on when we came in to stay. Everyone was very helpful. A bit off the main road but well worth the three mile or so drive.
I wish we stayed longer, as it was we stayed three nights. We will return nest time we’re going n southern Colorado.

We stayed here about 13 years ago when we lived in Layton UT. Still a great site off the beaten path. Nice level sites all gravel. Lots of green space not crowded together. Has cabins as well as pool, store, and pub. Shower/bath and laundry @ $1.50 load. Trail horse site 1/2 mile from entrance. Outside Manco and 17 miles from Cortez, 25 from Durango. We hauled our HD Ultra and toured the mountains for two days.

Wow this place is a gem. Beautiful views and off the main highway. The owner is super friendly and went out of his way to make our stay amazing. Nice restaurant and bar and pool too.

Absolutely amazing views and family that has taken over! Continuing to upgrade and taking the comfort of their campers into the utmost consideration!
Don’t miss out on this gem

Very Nice Park Off The Highway
Echo Basin Ranch is approximately 3 miles off US-160 on a small county road, which makes the park a very quite and secluded place to spend a few days while exploring SW Colorado. Sites are pretty level and generously spaced for a private park. Owners and staff very friendly. If we are ever back in SW Colorado this where we’ll stay. Oh, don’t let the county road bother you there is clearance for big rig

Peaceful, Stunning And Fun!
This place is just simply awesome! 15 out of 10 on the feel-good scale! Secluded, peaceful and quiet, plus it's the best home-base for Durango, Mesa Verde, Telluride and even Silverton. The new owners (2nd year) are so amazingly fun and work SO hard to make this a beautiful spot. My plan was 3 days and I stayed 2 weeks and am already making plans to come back. Don't hesitate on this one! Say hey to Bill, Camille, John & Tom!
Specifics: Clean everything, great showers and laundry, restaurant and bar during season, back-in's and pull-throughs, cabins (22!), playground, volleyball, pool, etc. And no, they didn't pay me for this...

This has to one of the best hidden secrets in camping I have ever seen! Spent the Summer of 2017 there and as I type we are enroute back for 2018. It is a beautiful setting in the Ponderosa Pines with huge lots and abundance of wildlife.
It opened last spring with new owners (the Carr family) and we were amazed at how many upgrades and improvements were made in one season! This is one place you don’t want to pass up!

I called them at 5:30 and they welcomed me in. Be ready for a great surprise this was our best camping in 30 days spacious sites with tables and mats nice shower facilities. My view right now is of bulls on one side, cows and deer on the other side, and horses in another field. It's 'up country' a bit, no hwy noise!!! It's actually a golf course that never happened, so think about that landscaping as your garden. Treat yourself to more than a night here. You will love it!

What a special place clean, quiet, friendly, wished we could have stayed longer. Lots of wildlife and close to many attractions, well worth the couple of extra miles to get there!

Among The Pines
I called to make a one night reservation because we were just passing through heading toward home. The man who took the reservation said, " You'll probably want to stay two nights." Well, he was wrong. We stayed three! Loved the area, felt like we had ample space, and enjoyed watching the birds, humming birds, squirrels, chipmunks and occasional deer. It is a resort and they hosted two weddings this weekend (no problem for campers but this gives you an idea of the quality of the location). Staff was great and price was good, about $40 for back-in full hookup. If you're military you get the same discount as Good Sam. If we are back in SW Colorado again this will definitely be our Campground of choice.

Spacious, were flexible on choice of site location. Great views of fields, mountains, and horses. Clean bathrooms and laundry room. Could improve on wifi speed and seems to be excess of Astro turf which somewhat distracts from the locations natural beauty. I would definitely stay here again, so much potential!

Space And Natural Beauty!!!
Very easy to find the RV park. The higher elevation makes all the difference in the weather. One of my favorite RV parks. Good space in between each camper and a gorgeous view. We travelled with 2 dogs and 3 children under the age of 6. The owner was very nice and accommodating. The area was beautiful and had everything we needed. Our 3 day trip turned into a week. We will definitely be returning.
