Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP - South Rim Campground


Staff member
We stayed in the South Rim campground in the fall of 2019. Our site B7 in loop B had 50 amp power, but no water or sewer hookups, which wasn't a problem for a three day stay. The site was huge and had a large eating area with a picnic table and a tent site as well. BCG NP is a Dark Sky Park, which means they go to great lengths to avoid light pollution at night. A couple hours after sunset, this is the darkest place I've ever been. Without some sort of light, it is nearly impossible to see where you're going. The reward is knowing that the Milky Way actually looks like! We highly recommend staying here if you have the opportunity.

Look very closely and see if you can find the natural inhabitant of our site:
