Other things to note
The Cimarron Valley and surrounding area is in an amazingly beautiful and scantily populated area of the Colorado Rockies. US Highway 50 that passes through the area is mostly two-lane and the Black Canyon RV Campground and Cabins sits conveniently off of this highway (expect some occasional minor traffic noise). We are also located between two minor mountain summits, Cerro Summit toward Montrose in the West and Blue Mesa Summit toward Gunnison and Blue Mesa Reservoir to the East. Shopping, grocery stores, and restaurants are 23 miles west in Montrose or 42 miles east in Gunnison.
The Black Canyon RV Park, Cabins and Campground is a great place for reunions as well. Besides RV sites, 4 small cabins and 2 larger cabins, the campground also includes tenting sites and a lodge. The lodge has bunks for up to 10 people, a large community room with a large screen TV, and full kitchen.
Minimum stay of 5 nights from Dec 1 to May 1. (Laundry facilities may not be available during the winter months.)
Guests are expected to treat the cabin and campground property with care and to observe noise and activity levels that do not disturb other guests. Smoking is not allowed in any of the cabins or campground buildings. Pets not allowed in this unit. Two day minimum during Holidays.
The beauty and recreational opportunities of the Cimarron Valley where my family lives and operates the Black Canyon RV Campground and Cabins convinces me daily that I live in paradise! We love to hunt and fish and have this in our own backyard! Our campground is a center for fishing and outdoor recreation in the Spring and Summer and a hot spot for hunting in the Fall and early Winter. And - we have many people who stay in one of our cabins or in the RV campground and just enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the valley and mountains.
