Durango Camping Beta

Hey everyone,

I was looking to get some beta on car camping spots in Durango. We will be going to the play park so somewhere close would be awesome.

You can drive up Junction Creek to a campground up there. Pay per site and a nice spot that's close to town. Other than that...good luck. Everything else is outside of town. Not too far...but outside.

To air is human, to get big air divine.

There's an forest service improved campground about 4 miles west of Durango on 25th st/ CR 204. That's about as close as you'll get. It has nice sites, worth the money I guess. Head north thru town and turn left on 25th St at the Texaco.

Outside of town there are a bunch more options....La Plata Canyon, Hermosa Park, Vallecito CG. Those are all within a reasonable drive from town.
That being said, Junction Cr. is by far the closest and easiest. If you don't want to pay then just keep motoring up the hill until you find something off of one of the side roads.
