Pretty nice Campground. Restrooms are kept clean. Biggest complaint is the 5MPH speed limit on the dusty dirt roads is mostly violated by about 5 fold. Be prepared for all your gear/vehicle/camper etc to have a nice coating after one day, let alone the 2...More

This lake is beautiful and we always have so much fun fishing and camping here. Camp areas are kept clean as well as bathrooms which are clean and stocked daily.

We came to Haviland for a picnic with the kids and were not disappointed. This campground and park is near the San Juan National Forest, 18 miles north of Durango. Parking was $5 (limited spaces) and we loved the fact that this was a no-wake...More
