We stayed at the campground during our stay in the National Park. For $12 we had electricity and stayed in loop B. We had a very pleasant evening sitting around the campfire watching the wildlife. We had a family of deer just outside our campsite which was fun to watch. There are no other hookups other than electricity for RVs.

My husband and I visited in July 2015. The views of the Park are absolutely stunning and for only $10 per vehicle admission it was a great deal. You can either drive from different site seeing spots, or get out and hike some of their amazing trails. We spent about 3.5 hours their and stopped at all the locations on... More

Great campsites many are very wheel-able Unbelievably beautiful canyon. Fun trails. Many on edges a bit difficult for me The lookouts and trails that are accessible are labeled clearly. The Rangers will help with access to talks in any of the locations offered If you off road a bit in your chair, then several of the unlabeled trails and lookouts... More

Stayed for one night in August 2015. We stumbled across this park during a cross country road trip. The canyon is spectacular! The campground was exactly as advertised. We chose a site on the C Loop. Arrived about 3:30 and 1/3-1/2 the sites were already claimed. The sites were spacious and private. All sites had a picnic table, fire ring... More

I spent a lot of time online looking at Google maps trying to pick out the perfect campsite and I think this one came pretty close. Pro: close to toilets, but not so close that you can smell them, pull-through driveway (we have 2 cars), enough room for 1-2 tents and maybe even a third adjacent to the driveway (we... More

We stayed in the "B" loop of the South Rim Campground. We knew when we made the reservation that it was electric only, which was fine, but as I was looking at the map for water,came to find that while there is LIMITED drinking water, there is no water available to fill tanks at the park nor a dump station....

The South End campground is great for all types of camping from tents to large RV;s. We camped in loop B which has electric hook ups for our 32 foot 5th wheels. The sites are secluded with wild life wandering through - mainly deer. They didn't seem at all afraid of our lab who, of course, was restrained at all... More

A bit off the beaten path, Black Canyon Nat'l Park in general was really cool! I loved that it was quieter and less populated here than many of the other Nat'l Parks. We saw a deer within our first ten minutes of being there as we set up our tent and proceeded to see at least 5 more (including fawns)... More

Loved the privacy we had in our spot. The campground is set up really nicely with good shade and not too close to other spots. We rode our bikes to the visitors center and took in a couple evening ranger talks. This is a nice inexpensive way to spend a couple nights in a quiet, scenic place.

This was our first visit to the Black Canyon and I did research to discover that loop B not only had electric, but could be reserved! We found the campground plenty spacious for our pop-up and observed very large RVs staying in loop B. The campground was quiet and clean. We even had deer that would get as close as... More
