A buddy of mine and I are looking to plan a camping and 4 wheeling trip. We are going with about 20 people.

I'm looking for a nice spot for camping, fishing and wheeling. Most of the people going won't be wheeling. So I'm looking for a location that has a variety of activities. Any input? I'll be leaving from Denver at the end of July.

4J+1+1 is a nice CG in town. It fills up fast but here's their number 970-325-4418

There are some nice, large dispersed camping spots along the Animas Forks Road between Silverton and Animas Forks.

This probably won't be much help because I can't remember the name of the campground. 11 years ago I camped at a place about 20-30 min north of Durango and the place was great. I remember a lake at the entrance and some nice hiking and biking right out of the camp. It was also about 10-15 min north of some hot springs place. I was in a group of about 15 people.

In between Telluride and Durango, Some good trails and camping east of the lake! Hope this helps

Found the CG I was talking about on a map. Haviland Lake CG. Around 20 miles North of Durango. It's a really nice location for a large group. Plenty of stuff to do right at the campground.
