“Simply beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

We spent one night in Haviland Lake campground and were overwhelmed by the beauty of this campground. The sights are very private, surrounded by trees and each has a view of the lake. It was simply beautiful and the lake is gorgeous. And although it has vault toilets, they were incredibly clean (and even smelled good). You can tell that the hosts take pride in this site. The only complaint were the Mosquitos but what can you expect being right on the lake. Love this campsite and cannot wait to return.

“Haviland Lake is absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2009

My husband and I briefly made a stop to Haviland Lake on a summer vacation from Durango to Silverton. The view is spectacular and peaceful and we plan to go back soon to do some camping and fishing.

“limited out on rainbows lickety split.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2009

fish off the pier by the boat ramp. weight on bottom of line and a # 12 or 14 egg hook 18inches up above weight. the wife beat me 4 to 2 in less than half an hour. paulzeik salmon eggs never fail or the pink yellow swirl power bait works well. berkley crappie nibbles with salmon eggs, garlic powder,and any liquid fish attractor ,just a couple of drops mix well .not to thin or it falls off the hook to fast. it works good.
