Here, you and your pooch will find ADA accessible parking for cars and trucks, clean restrooms, and drinking fountains. There's also a designated pet exercise area where Fido can burn off some pent-up energy. Don't let your pup run loose, though—all doggos stopping by Haviland must be leashed and cleaned up after.

If you don't have your own food, you can get a snack from the vending machines, which take both cash and cards.
Haviland is open 24 hours a day and well-lit at night, giving weary travelers a safe place to pawse and rest any time of the day.
