Black Canyon trail map

Purchase Black Canyon map from AmazonPurchase Black Canyon map from AmazonUnfortunately I haven’t found any good free trail maps for Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park (just the free one below). However, the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map is great for showing the entire park along with all trails and backcountry campsites (and also includes Curecanti National Recreation Area). There are also tons of other Trails Illustrated maps for other regions of Colorado.

Black Canyon trail mapThis Black Canyon trail map (500 kb) isn’t too detailed but shows the backcountry routes down to the river that aren’t displayed on the full park map. It goes without saying: you’ll want actual topo maps for those hikes!

Black Canyon campground maps

Black Canyon South Rim campground mapThe South Rim Campground map (200 kb) shows the largest campground in the park; it includes three loops and has both campsites available for reservations and also first-come first-served ones.

Black Canyon East Portal campground mapThe East Portal Campground map (350 kb) shows both the drive-in and walk-in sites at this first-come first-served campground along the Gunnison River at canyon bottom. It’s a beautiful quiet location!

Black Canyon lodging map

Black Canyon lodging mapThis part of Colorado is pretty empty, so you don’t have a lot of towns to choose from when deciding where to stay. Montrose is really the only option if you’re planning on seeing the major park sites. To the right is a Hotels.com interactive Montrose lodging map, so you can see where it is in relation to the park. You could also browse Expedia’s top-rated Black Canyon lodging (or Hotels.com) to compare prices and guest reviews.
