Group Camping

Careful planning and knowledge of camping guidelines and regulations will help ensure an enjoyable and safe experience for you, future visitors, and the fragile desert environment.

Black Canyon Equestrian & Group Campground
While the campgrounds at Mid Hills and Hole-in-the-Wall accommodate a maximum of 8 people and 2 vehicles, the Black Canyon Equestrian & Group Campground (located across the road from Hole-in-the-Wall Information Center) is ideal for larger groups (usually 15 - 50 people). Camping here will help minimize damage to natural resources.

Group campsite: Vault toilets, trash receptacles, fire ring, grill, shaded picnic shelter with tables.
Equestrian campsite: Corrals, vault toilets, trash receptacles, fire ring, grill.
Firewood collecting is not allowed in the park, nor is firewood available for sale.

$25 per group per night.

Groups with a certain number of persons or vehicles might need a permit if their activities extend beyond a certain distance from the Group Campground. We encourage you to contact us here if your group has more than 7 vehicles or 25+ persons.
