Black Canyon

Black Canyon Docks
**As of 8/30/2022 Black Canyon is closed to camping for the season due to aggressive bear activity in the area due to them receiving food rewards from campers.**

This is a developed campsite approximately 2.8 miles from the main canyon. It features a dozen sites with bear boxes, fire rings, and picnic tables. There is a dock here as well as a floating vault toilet from the third week of May until the middle of September. This site is at the end of a beautiful cove with pristine crystal clear water, an abundance of pine trees, and excellent fishing. This is the most popular boat-in only site and may be full on the weekends. Due to the high use it can be difficult to find firewood. There are bears in the area so use of the provided bear boxes is essential. Poison ivy is present at this site.
