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. Camping here will help minimize unnecessary damage to natural resources.

Facilities
Group campsite: Vault toilets, trash receptacles, potable water, fire ring, grill, picnic shelter with tables.
Equestrian campsite: Corrals, vault toilets, trash receptacles, potable water, fire ring, grill.
Firewood is not available in the park.

Fees
$25 per group per night.

Reservations
Required; call 760 928-2572 or 760 252-6104

 
Other Group Camping Options
Groups of at least 7 vehicles (or 7 horses) or 15 people require a Special Use Permit for roadside vehicle camping or backcountry camping. Groups this size or larger that are registered in the Black Canyon Equestrian & Group Campground (see above), using only the campground facilities, do not need a permit.
