A Nice Casino Campground Find

On July 25th we lifted our jacks and traveled a whopping 56 miles to the little town of Ignacio, CO. It was an uneventful drive east on US160, then a 14 mile trek south on CO172 (just east of Durango) to the Sky Ute Casino and Campground.


The casino itself is average in size, obviously not like Las Vegas casinos, but typical of Indian Nation run casinos.

We located the campground through Passport America. You can stay under PP for 7 nights @ $17.50 per night.  A truly good deal for FHUs, level and all-asphalt sites, and the best picnic tables and grills we've see for some time.



As shown above, there is plenty of room between sites.  I also liked the idea of being able to park our toad beside the rig.


Here's a look at the passenger side of the rig showing the grill and picnic table.


Entry and exits from the sites are via the wide and well maintained roads within the campground.


This was just a quick blog entry to move us along (as I'm still behind in my blog entries.) The next blog will show a few things we enjoyed in the Durango, Ouray, and Pagosa Springs areas.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

  1. That is an amazing casino campground. Hope the buffet was just as nice. ;c)

    1. Notice I didn't make any statements on the casino itself. The "player's club" benefits were not as good as many we've been to, so I think we lost a total of $5.
      There was no buffet (strange for a casino). They only had a nicer sit down (meaning expensive)and a grill style restaurant.

  2. We haven't stayed at any casinos, but this one looks really nice. Thanks for sharing.

    1. We have only stayed at 5 different casinos, so we are definitely not casino "experts", but 4 out of the 5 have been very nice (FHUs) and the one that wasn't so nice was still a FHU site....and was FREE!

  3. That does look like a good find. We drove down to Ignacio from Durango for a big Pow Wow a few years ago and it was fascinating.

    1. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. It's only 14 miles to Durango.

  4. Nice ... better than the one we looked into in MS as an alternate to a state park.
