Nearby attractions includes a Cimarron Rail Exhibit and an expansive reservoir at the Curecanti National Recreation Area.


A camping trip to the Black Canyon of Gunnison National Park makes for a beautiful getaway for sightseeing, stargazing, and hiking. The park protects the most dramatic section of the Gunnison River Canyon; no other canyon in North America combines the narrow opening, sheer walls, and startling depths of Black Canyon.


Take one of many spectacular hikes such as the Oak Flat Loop Trail, and watch for the black-billed magpie. In summer, catch an evening educational program in the campground amphitheater. In winter, try snowshoeing on Rim Rock Trail or go cross country skiing on South Rim Drive.


Campsites are open year round, but drinking water is only available mid-May through mid-October. Electric hookups are in Loop B and available year around.
