Breath taking scenery

The Black Canyon is incredible. A great jewal tucked away, waiting to be discovered.

Great camping, fishing, and hiking

There is camp sites at the top and bottom of the canyon. We chose the bottom and were not disappointed by any means. Nestled in the trees, lulled by the river, and protected by the canyon, it doesn't get much better than that!

The Gunnison River

If fishing is your game, you'll have plenty to do here. The Gunnison River is a gold medal trout stream. We tried out luck, but unfortunately, the spawn was at it's peak, so the fish had better and far more important things to do.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great scenery, awesome camp sites
  • Cons:Steep and narrow road in and out of canyon.
  • In a nutshell:Worth driving off the beaten path!!!!
