United Campground has been a family owned and operated park for over 40 years. Located on the banks of the Animas River, Trolley Line and on the north edge of city limits, just 4 miles from Downtown Durango. Our campground offers over 100 level RV sites with water, electric and sewer, many shade trees and over 90 grassy and shaded tent sites. The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad runs right through the park.  As your hosts, we want to help make your trip to Durango a memorable one.

We are a family friendly park so bring your kids, grandkids and furry kids- we can't wait to see you!
