Dog owners do not have to make the decision to leave their “fur baby” at home when they are visiting the Durango, Colorado area, especially if they are planning on staying in their RV. There are many RV parks in the area and most of them welcome dogs as long as their owners are responsible for them. Most of these RV Parks are open from April 1 or mid April through October 31 of each year, but each RVer who plans on staying in one of the place should call and make sure of the dates the RV Park is open.
Alpen Rose RV Park is located at 27847 US 550 North, Durango, Colorado and may be the perfect location for RVers who travel with their dogs.

There is also a pet walking service for those who may need it which can be very handy if the RVer will be spending a lot of time outside their RV during the day.

Durango East KOA is located at 30090 US 160, Durango, Colorado and Durango North KOA is located at 13391 County Road, Durango, Colorado. Both of these KOA RV Parks welcome dogs along with their RVing parents but there are a few rules that they will have to follow. No dogs staying at either of these KOA RV Parks can be aggressive or hostile, if they are, they and their parents or owners will be asked to leave the property. Dogs outside their RV must be on a leash that is no longer than 6 foot and if they are tied or tethered outside the camping unit, they must be attended. Dogs with good manners are always welcome just about anywhere and these two RV Parks are no different. Dogs that bark excessively may not be the best RVer as they will bother their neighbors and then their owners will be looking for another place to park the RV. Also, all dogs must be cleaned up after. For more information on Durango East KOA call 907-247-0783 or for more information on Durango North KOA call 970-247-4499 or you can go to www.koa.com.
