The Sky Ute Casino RV Park is super. It is small with only 24 sites and filled them almost every night of the twelve we were there. It is full hookup big rig friendly. Best part it is Passport America. Your Casino play can also get you free nights. We also received many perks for food etc. Very clean. Super friendly host and very helpful. Can't say enough about them. The best ever. There is a super nice indoor pool with a lazy river and hot tub. A laundry, exercise room and showers. All super clean. It is located about 15 miles from Durango.
Indoor pool, hot tub, lazy river see on left side of pool, also outdoor seating with tables
A park with at great location to visit Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Also the city of Quray and Ridgeway. The park is a little hard to find as it is behind a shopping center. Park is well kept but a little tight in places. Most of the 40 sites are pull thru's with full hookups and a limited cable. All sites and roads were gravel. There was a small metal table with 2 chairs at our site. not sure if other sites had a picnic table. The trees were welcomed with the high temperatures we were experiencing. We were there in July. One or 2 Restaurants within walking distance.
The staff was helpful and we were lead to our site even though it was just in front of the office. Cost was around $38.00 with Good Sam. There was miniature gulf and a laundry. We would opt to stay at another RV Park in the area if ever in this area in the future.
This canyon was so different then all the other places we visited out west. The rock cropping's were a black color.
