Kroeger Campground is located in La Plata Canyon, with 10 campsites on 2 shaded acres. You can fish in the nearby La Plata River, but success rates are only fair. Expect cool summer nights at this elevation...[more]
La Plata Canyon is very popular in the summer. From Durango, go 12 miles west on U.S. Highway 160. Turn north on County Rd. 124 at Hesperus (which has a convenenience store/gas station and a post office, as well as a restaurant) and go 5 miles.
The paved road turns to gravel at the National Forest boundary. Access to campgrounds is by 2WD gravel road, but, soon thereafter, the road becomes rugged 4WD.
Camping is allowed only in developed campgrounds and designated camping areas. In identified "dispersed" campsites, campfires are allowed only in the metal fire grates provided for your use.
