Desert shrubbery speckles this area, a vast open stretch that certainly preserves the Wild West vibe. If you want to travel through the desert (and back in time) this could be the perfect campground for your group. The Black Canyon campground has one large site for bigger groups and one site for campers and their horses. The group campsite has a picnic shelter, a grill, and tables to provide hearty meals for lots of hungry hikers! It also has vault toilets, potable water, and fire rings. The equestrian site has corrals for your horses, and all the same amenities, minus the grill and picnic shelter. These sites require reservations so call ahead folks!
