Just a short drive from this mountain sports town and the depot for the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, the Durango KOA provides a panoramic view of the jagged San Juan Mountains. At an elevation of 7,000 feet, this pinon-shaded campground atop a mesa makes for comfortably cool summer nights. In season, wake up to buttermilk pancakes or strawberry & cream waffles served at the Kaboose Kafe every morning. In the evening, fresh-made pizza can be delivered to your site. The dessert bar has sundaes, root beer floats and fresh baked pies. Enjoy nightly movies, weekly duck races, mini golf, a heated pool and kids' activities. Lodging includes basic Cabins to the all-out comfort of Deluxe Cabins. Several outfitters guide kayak/whitewater raft outings on the Animas River. Make Durango KOA your base camp for Mesa Verde National Park, only an hour's drive away. Pool: May 27 - September 15. Max pull thru: 100 feet. Your hosts: Jay & Carol Coates.
