Description

Approximately 30 miles from the Wilderness Ranger District’s offices, Upper Black Canyon Campground can really give you some privacy. Just be sure to check that fuel gauge because the closest gas station is 40 miles away in Mimbres. Campers here include hiking Trail 94 from the lower campground, or biking along the lightly-trafficked FR150. There is a nearby stream, but drinking from it is rolling the dice.

Quite the drive, but extremely worth it. Very secluded spot of two primitive campsites. No water, but there is a vault toilet nearby and picnic tables. Great spot to listen to the creek babbling nearby and watch wildlife in the surrounding area. A 4WDis recommended as the road to the campsite can be challenging especially after a storm. This is bear country so make sure to lock your food up in your car, truck, or hanging cache. There are no bear boxes at this site.
Overall this is a great campsite to do some hiking, pan for gold (seriously!), or just kick back and enjoy the peace and seclusion.

Enjoy listening to the creek run by.  This is a trout recovery area as well.Nothing better than a camp breakfast!The road leading to the campsite.  RVs? Good luck with that...
