The South Rim Campground (88 sites) offers pit toilets, tables, and grills. The B loop has 30 amp electrical service available. Sites are usually available even on the busiest weekends. Although there are no group sites, groups can generally be accommodated at the South Rim Campground. Vehicles greater than 35 feet are not recommended.
The North Rim Campground (13 sites) also has pit toilets, tables, and grills, but occasionally fills during the summer months. Vehicles greater than 35 feet are not recommended.
Camping fees are $10.00/night (maximum of 8 persons and 2 vehicles). Camping in B loop is $15/night. Golden Age and Access cardholders receive a discount on camping, so the charge is $10 for B loop and $5 elsewhere. All sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis (no reservations).
Although the Gunnison River is just 2,000' below, all water on the rim must be hauled in. Therefore, please conserve water. Water is available from mid-May to mid-October at both campgrounds, Gunnison Point, and Pulpit Rock. Plan to bring your own water at other times of the year.
Limit of Stay
Camping is limited to a visit of 14 consecutive nights for a total of 30 nights during the calendar year.
Additional campgrounds are available at Curecanti National Recreation Area, and Ridgeway Lake and Crawford Lake State Recreation Areas. Private campgrounds are located near Montrose, Delta and Cimarron.
