Come with water in your tank. Water restrictions in effect. They asked us not to fill our tank. Stop at hosts' sites and register before entering campground. Easy access, all sites wind around on hillside. Mostly level. A few lake sites. Roads in bad shape, drive slow. Vault toilets in good shape, clean, little or no smell. Beautiful lake. Nice to have electric in NF. Would stay again. We were in a small rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are looking for a cushy park with lots of amenities, this is not the place for you. We didn't have reservations, but the park holds a few sites for first come first serve. We found a spot that our RV would fit in although there were no utilities. You can run a generator between 8am and 10pm. The weather is nice and cool and the park is so quiet. We slept with the windows open and the weather was perfect for it. Would definitely stay here again. If you want a spot on the lake, with power, be sure to go to the website and reserve it well in advance because they stay pretty booked up in the summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice dry camping campground. NO WATER connections for any type of hose, so no re-filling or topping off RV water tanks. Very clean and very well maintained. Only downside is if you are not comfortable with narrow roads, as they are indeed narrow if your are in a large motorhome as we were. We stayed one night while passing through and would stay again if needed place to stop and were prepared to dry camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Senior Pass. This is a very nice quiet campground in the San Juan National Forest. Haviland Lake is great for trout fishing. Site was large enough to get our 36 foot fifth-wheel in, clean site with fire ring & picnic table. We had 50 amp electric & had no problems. Vault toilets were clean, there are no showers. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I stayed at this campground as a one-night stopover while traveling through Colorado. The campground hosts were both friendly and helpful. The site was easy to get in and out of and the electrical hook-up worked fine. The vault toilets were very clean. There are no showers at this campground. I would have stayed longer and explored the hiking trails had it not been for the rainy weather. This is a very scenic and quiet park. I would definitely consider camping here again, We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The season is mid-May to mid-Sept. From Durango, go 17 miles north on Highway 550, Turn east (right) onto F.R. 671 (there is a sign) and there is a horse rental corral at the corner, go about one mile on paved one-lane, two-way road. It is very close with a big rig because you will go between two steel posts but it's doable. Look ahead for oncoming vehicles on this stretch. The campground roads are gravel and one lane with one-way signs. It is in a beautiful setting. Only electric motors are allowed on the lake which is trout-stocked. There is a boat ramp and picnic area. The campground receives very heavy usage so if you don't have reservations get there early in the day. 26 sites are reservable and 17 sites have 30/50A electric. The vault toilets are kept very clean and odor-free. The hosts are very friendly. There are no showers, no dump station, no water fill so come prepared. There are water spigots throughout the campground but you can't fill an RV or do any kind of bathing/hair-washing or teeth-brushing, dish-washing which is great! Those activities make a very unsanitary mess of water spigot areas! The spigots are only for filling a pot or small container. Firewood is sold and if a host sees a log overhanging the fire pit you're out of the park - good rule for cutting down on large fires. The sites are mostly in shade and a handful are on the lake. There are various prices - lakeside #39-45 are $22 plus $5 if they have electric. Other electric sites are $17 plus $5 electric. Non-electric sites are $17. Check out is Noon. Verizon phone and air card work great! Elevation is around 8,000 ft. Golden Age Passports are accepted but not for the electric add-on. Approximately one-half of the sites will accommodate a 40' motorhome but since the sites are along a single lane road and there are many trees you have to be careful. This is our third visit and we'll return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
