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

We camped one night on Loop C, spot 29 which was fairly close to the water and toilets. There was someone in the site next to us but there were enough trees between us that it still felt private (even though we could hear them moving about and getting in and out of their car). The campsite was big enough... More

We stayed two nights in a reserved campsite in loop A. Nice privacy between sites, easy access to fresh water and toilets. Super clean, non-yucky bathrooms. Walked right over to Ampitheater for evening ranger program. Black Canyon is a low-key park with friendly staff and well maintained facilities. Would definitely return!

We stayed here in October 2012 in our VW Vanagon camper. Glad we were not in a tent as it was really cold and windy, but I guess that is to be expected at over 8000ft elevation in the fall. Campground facilities were rudimentary to say the least, no washrooms and at this time of year only one pit toilet... More

The four of us camped for two nights at this campground. The camp sites and vault toilets were all very well maintained. Please note that there are no restaurant facilities in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park; however, Montrose has many food options and is only 15-20 minutes away. Six deer visited our campsite on our last night and... More

My husband, dog, and I camped for one night at this campground. We stayed in site A25 which was separated from its "neighbors" with plants and shrubbery, which also offered shade in the afternoon. The picnic table was clean and made of composite wood. The fire pit with grill was also very well kept. The only reason I give this... More

We tent camped for a night at the South Rim Campground in order to do a little hiking along the Black Canyon's rim and drive the scenic drive in the park along the rim. The campground does not have views of the Canyon itself from the campsites, but some of the higher elevation sites have nice views of the mountains... More
