(MORE) Free Camping in Durango, Colorado

We enjoyed camping on Cherry Creek Road in Durango – but it was time to refill our tanks, so we decided to stay in the area and change up the scenery. We moved to Durfield BLM east of Durango.


Here’s the Breakdown:

Location: Durfield BLM – East of Durango

GPS37.219377, -107.699484

Date / Temp: We camped here for 3 nights in early October. The highs were mid 50s with lows creeping into the 30s. The skies were cloudy most of our stay with rain & hail.

Amenities: This site offers no services and practices a “Pack In, Pack Out” policy.  There is a dump station and water fill up in town

Wifi / Cell: We received a 4G LTE signal with both AT&T and T-Mobile (using our WeBoost Cell Booster). The speeds were amazing – 10 Mbps up & down

Noise: This site was pretty quiet. The first night we camped in complete solitude. There was no road noise from 160 and no traffic on the BLM road. The second night we had neighbors park 50 yards away… no so quiet, but it wasn’t too annoying.

Grocery / Errands: Downtown Durango is 14 miles away and offers all the shopping we needed to complete our chores. There is a central post office, and lots of gas stations.

Dog Friendly: This site is dog friendly. River had a lot of space to play and explore. The town of Durango is also dog friendly and offers many walking trails.

Entertainment: Hiking, ATVing and horseback riding are the most popular activities at the campsite. The Durango area offers lots of tourist activities and great dining.
