Thanks for the info on the area. I know what you mean about booking up. Recreation.gov kept changing the opening dates that the reservations were being accepted, and I missed the opening date for Haviland Lake. By the middle of the first day of the reservations period it was booked for the entire season. It is the same down here, I avoid the National Forest on the holiday weekends and most of the summer season, it turns into a zoo with all of the out of town visitors.
Even with changing our dates and coming in mid-week the sites around Durango were limited, with most being booked. Luckily got the last lakeside site at Pine Point, and am looking forward to it. Will make a side trip to Silverton and Ouray, and of course will have to have breakfast at the Durango Diner.
Hey what is the CO State law on riding quads on the forest roads? Mine is licensed in AZ and is road legal down here, even on paved roads and in town. Will have to research the CO laws to make sure I am in compliance.
