Black Canyon Campground is nestled between Highway 58 and the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. The campground is heavily shaded by Douglas fir, cedar and hemlock - making it a great place to stay cool during any hot summer days. The river is one of the main attractions here, especially popular with fishermen. There is a boat ramp, and just downstream is Lookout Point Lake with more fishing and boating opportunities. Additionally, there are miles of hiking and biking trails nearby for those more comfortable on dry land than the water.

The campground itself offers 75 campsites. Select campsites may be reserved online in advance, while the remainder are first come, first served. Each campsite features a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. There are also vault toilets throughout the campground.

If camping at Black Canyon Campground, try and secure a site closer to the river. The campsites that are close to the highway suffer from traffic noise, although traffic dies down considerably during the night.
