Kroeger Campground in La Plata Canyon has 10 sites on two acres, with plenty of shade near the La Plata River. The river is close to the road, so fishing is popular. Success rates are only fair.
The campground is six miles up the canyon and shaded by a mixture of spruce, fir, aspen, and cottonwood. Expect cool nights during the summer as the elevation is 9,000 feet.
One site has a double table and large parking area. Another is suitable for a long RV. There is one pull-thru. Private property is adjacent to the campground.
Directions from Durango, Colorado: Travel 11 miles west on U.S. Highway 160 and turn right (north) on County Road 124 (La Plata Canyon) and drive 6 miles.
