I am a repeated visitor, 9 days every year for the last 4 with the 5th coming up in August.

Quiet with only 3 sites. Clean restrooms. Good water.

I have on average 20 people with room for more. Plenty of room to spread out with tents. 2 large picnic tables provided. Host are always nice and helpful.

Chris Park Group Campground is located just south of Havilland Lake about 18 miles north of Durango. The road from the highway is gravel and sported a fair number of chuck holes when I was there. The campground sits down in a bowl so there's essentially no cell coverage although I was able to pull in three bars of Verizon 3G with the antenna and amplifier.

Once you reach the campground, the loop road and all parking is asphalt. Parking is a bit strange - while the area is designed and intended for group camping (including RVs), with the exception of the six power pedestal spots and the host site, all other parking is standard car striping. You end up parking like at Walmart in Whitehorse - any way you please. There are some locations that will provide sunlight for solar while others are heavily shaded.

There are three separate reservable areas, one of which includes a large covered pavilion (that has several 110v outlets), and one of which includes 6 spaces with power pedestals. The power is an additional $5 per night for each pedestal used. There is trash service and a single bathroom building that I failed to check. There is water on site but without threads and with a sign saying it's not for refilling RVs.

It won't be an option if you're looking for a single site, but it's a great place for a group gathering. We had 21 trailers there with two of the three areas reserved and had lots of room left over. I think each area is $50 per night but I'm not certain.
