Alpen-Rose Campground and RV Park

Alpen-Rose Campground and RV Park is located in Durango, Colorado.  They are on US 550 6.3 miles north of the intersection of US 160 and US 550.  If you are traveling north on US 550 the campground will be on your left and on the right if traveling south.  The campground is located at 6521' in the San Juan Mountains.

There are 100 sites available, all with full hookups including 30/50 amp electrictiy.  The interior roads are gravel and there is lots of shade at most of the sites.  The majority of the sites are side-by-side.  This is a personal negative for me but they have done a good job with the arangements so they don't look too crowded.

The amenities include a heated pool, enclosed rec hall and enclosed game room, playground, fresh water fishing, cable TV, free WiFi, restrooms/showers, laundry, RV supplies and LP gas.  There is a very large dog walk area where you can let your dog off leash to run.

Although we did not stay at this campground, we have some friends who stayed here and thought that it is a very nice campground.  We drove through the campground to take pictures, and like the way it looks and like the layout.  It is very well maintained and very clean.
