However, the park was sold in 2021 and since then, it has gone completely downhill -- just one year after I bought a vacation home here. The management company clearly does NOT care about the summer residents here and we have been avoided, lied to and intimidated by the on-site manager. We believe that the new owners simply want us to abandon our summer homes and go away. They currently have our hands tied -- apparently we can't sell without having them removed from the park UNLESS they meet certain criteria and inquiries as to WHAT these criteria are have so far received no response. We also have NO IDEA what the rates will be for next season and with no rent control laws in the state of Colorado, we have no clue as to what is coming. No real amenities here, either. No cell service. Park WiFi is a joke. The camp store is completely empty and the place looks like a dump from the road. I am totally distraught and disgusted! DO NOT STAY HERE! The park is 13 miles from Bayfield and 20 miles to Durango -- not exactly convenient.

Friendly office staff, Amazon deliveries without issue. Laundry was clean with 4 washers and 4 dryers, reasonably priced. Showers were small, a little dated but acceptable. No cell service at our site using the 3 main carriers. We had to walk to the entrance pavilion to access Wifi. Other sites may allow internet.The local chainsaw carvings as tribute to those who help fight the fire that devastated the area years ago was amazing. The water table of the lake was down but the area was still lovely.

The weather is perfect, the people are friendly, the location wildlife is new and fun, the nearby outdoor attractions are the best! We got to play in the Vallecito Creek, go fishing in the Vallecito Reservoir, and go hiking in parts of the San Juan National forest. Attractions include horseback riding (call ahead and keep calling as they’re not very good at answering the phone or calling people back), renting boats, kayaks, and John boats. You’re also very close to Durango, CO where there is a literal TON of things to do.This park is mostly retirees, but they were lovely with our two teenagers and small child. Pets are welcome, but please, keep them on a leash! Laundry facilities are clean, and bathrooms are available with showers and are very clean as well.We have Verizon and there was ZERO cell service at our site, but they have a hotspot set up near the office.

Many of the RV spots are occupied by seasonal residents, and along with the cabin folks, many of these campers return year after year. Nearly everyone we met was extremely friendly, the camp hosts were super helpful, and the owner is great to work with and did everything to make our stay ideal.The spacing between sites is pretty average for a commercial park, but the camping feels more natural due to the presence of lots and lots of trees, well cared for grounds, and a sort-of neighborhood feel to the whole place. Our site was long and level, and our utilities were easy to reach and worked perfectly during our stay. While some of the activities were limited due to Covid, the park usually hosts a number of social events and offers many common areas, including an outdoor pavilion, grills, playground, dog run, and laundry. There is plenty of room to walk a dog or move around outside, and while the park was often full during our stay, it was never loud and/or crazy.This park provides the best WiFi we’ve ever used in an RV park, but it’s only available near to the office/store, which offers nice outdoor seating, and the large outdoor pavilion. The office store stocks all sorts of helpful items (ice, wood, soda, ice cream, etc) and they fill propane. Cell service/internet is a bit tricky, and while some areas of the park get some, others get zero. Our site had zero service without our booster, but we had really good service (streaming was fine) with the booster.This CG location is beautiful and close to more of what makes Colorado so popular, 2 reservoirs (Vallecita and Lemon), tons of hiking, and all sorts of picturesque scenery. It’s a 25 minute drive into Durango, and visits to Silverton and Mesa Verde are also reasonable. We appreciated their reasonable seasonal and monthly rates (which they will prorate beyond 30 days), and that we were able to receive packages during our stay. We enjoyed our time at Vallecita and would definitely stay again.

    This is nice clean RV park very quiet with very friendly neighbors. Only real down side is there is absolutely no Verizon or T-Mobile service, and the park WiFi is only available at the entrance(office and pavilion). Not sure about the other carriers, so if internet is a necessity, this may not be the park for you.

While the gig didn't work out for me, I returned at the end of August and stayed until the park closed on Oct. 1. This year (2018) I will be staying here from about mid-June until the weather turns chilly sometime in September.The park is on 22 wooded acres; a mix of RV sites and park models. There are also several cabins for rent. No pool -- but a huge hot tub! Showers were a bit semall for my liking, but were always very clean with plenty of hot water! Laundry facilities (2) were also very clean and there is a huge table for folding! The camp store offers a variety of necessities and clothing with the Vallecito logo on them at reasonable prices.This is a great location for boaters, kayakers and fisherman -- very close to the marina on Vallecito Lake and there are plenty of hiking trails nearby as well.For the most part, this park is quiet and offers an absolutely gorgeous view of the Milky Way! While I was not there during some kind of motorcycle week, I did hear that the noise of all those Harleys going up and down County Rd. 501 was very annoying. Fortunately, most of those people stayed elsewhere, but had to pass by on their way to and from Durango.Beginning Memorial Day Weekend, Friday nights are PIZZA NIGHTS! Dave Lipsea (owner/manager) makes the BEST brick-oven baked pizza I've ever eaten with a big variety of toppings available. You just place your order before a certain time on Friday and choose the time you want to pick it up whether you wish to eat in the large pavilion or take it back to your site.There are also numerous breakfasts and pot-luck dinners throughout the season, together with other planned group activities. There is a large lending library in a separate building and a selection of movies on DVDs at the office (free - honor system).The biggest drawback here is the lack of park-wide WiFi and cell phone signal. There is a spot over by the dam everyone calls the Phone Booth! There are a number of chairs in that location so you can sit down and make your calls. This lack of "modern" convenience would be problematic for those who are addicted to their phones.I do not know the nightly rate, but they DO accept Passport America and offer a special at the very beginning and end of the season. Monthly rates are $650 plus electricity; Seasonal Rates (May 1 - Sept. 30) are $1,595 - $2,095 depending on the size you require. I was able to negotiate a very good rate for a 4-month stay this year and was lucky to get a spot! This park fills up fast and has quite a large number of folks who come there every summer!
