What To Do in Gunnison National Park

For many travelers, the sprawling, 2,612 square mile Gunnison National Forest and neighboring Gunnison National Park in western Colorado are the gateways to adventure. You can go camping, fly-fishing, or get off the map altogether exploring one of the many hiking trails in the area. Wherever you go, you can travel confidently knowing one of our affordable RV parks or cabins is always nearby.

Gunnison National Forest

Head to Gunnison National Forest for some of the state's best hiking trails. Copper Creek Trail and Washington Gulch Trail both offer spectacular views of the local scenery.

Gunnison Gorge Conservation Area

Located in the western area of Gunnison National Park, outdoors enthusiasts will love the Gunnison Gorge Conservation Area. This nature reserve is a great place to go fishing, hunting, and rafting.

Black Canyon

The Black Canyon lies on the southern edge of the Conservation Area, and is a true geological wonder. The canyon dates back to the Precambrian Era, which was 1.7 billion years ago. Today, it's one of the most picturesque drives and campgrounds in the country.

For more adventure, head south from the Black Canyon along the Gunnison River. You can go rafting, fly-fishing, and camping along this scenic river.
