Durango RV Resort is a private resort just off Interstate 5 in beautiful Red Bluff, CA. with the Sacramento River running along its north side. Durango offers 174 full hook-up sites, 21 sites that back up to various points to their 3 fountains, 11 sites that back up to a beautiful view of the Sacramento river, 12 “buddy sites” that face each other for a common area between them, 12 double-length long sites for putting two RV’s in lengthwise, and the remaining sites all being standard pull-thru. I must also mention the office and grounds staff are some of the nicest and most friendly we have ever encountered in our travels and always willing to help you out with whatever your needs are.
What frills and thrills do Durango offer??? Valet service by way of all paved roads will take you to your fully concreted level site and make sure you know about the hookups before they leave you on your own and each morning they will come to your site to pick up your trash left by the curb. Each site can accommodate the smallest of RV’s to the largest; pull-thru sites are 35 feet wide by 85 feet long and back-ins are 35 feet wide by 75 feet long; our rig setup is a 2014 RAM 3500 Crew Cab and 2016 Solitude 375RE totaling 60 feet in length hooked together and there was still plenty of room to spare. Each site offers 30 amp and or 50 amp service, cable, water, sewer, and a very well maintained grassy area, and a picnic table. Sorry, but there are no fire pits or grills in each site though and tents are not allowed. They also ask that you stake nothing in the ground so you do not damage their landscape watering system. The resort is quite large and it is recommended that if you have difficulties walking you may want to bring a bicycle or other mode for transportation around the resort. They also, depending on the site of year and reason, offer low-cost breakfasts and live music.
They also offer LP gas, small store for the very basics, restrooms, showers, laundry (5 washers and 5 dryers), WiFi, bike trails, hiking trails, day-use picnic areas, visitor center/lodge room with leather couches, a stone fireplace, and a big-screen television, rentable lodge rooms for groups and parties, fishing on the river, small exercise room, basketball & tennis court, tetherball, bocce ball court, putting green, two small off-leash dog areas and also a doggy spa area, swimming pool and spa, and nature & wildlife viewing. AND in case you had an exceptionally rough day you can get a massage in their onsite massage parlor.

There are some things to do that are fun but a few listed here are a bit away: Coleman National Fish Hatchery, Turtle Bay, Red Bluff Art Gallery, State Theatre, Oak Greek Golf Course, Rolling Hills Casino, Lariat Bowl, as well as many restaurants and some wineries.
On my “Worth-A-Stay” scale from 1 to 10, 1 – being OH MY GOD worthy of passing up and never looking back, to 10 – being OH MY GOD worthy of a must-visit again, I would rate this resort as a “9” for 2 reasons. 1 – There is a train that goes nearby occasionally and apparently LOVES to hear its own horn and 2 – Freeway traffic can be heard most all day. But after some time you start to drown it out. But all in all our stay at Durango was well worth it and I have no doubt that we will be back many times in the months and years to come.
