Group Campsites

Groups size limits are in place for camping in campgrounds or in the backcountry. The Black Canyon Equestrian & Group Campground can accomodate most groups of 15 to 50 people.

Groups of 25 or more may gather and recreate within the Hole-in-the-Wall and Black Canyon area, within one mile of the group site. This includes the Hole-in-the-Wall VIsitor Center, picnic area and the Rings Trail.

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
