Where to stay in Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park

If you don't stay in one of the two campgrounds in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, the nearby town of Montrose serves as the second-most convenient option. Here you'll find numerous economy motels and a few small bed and breakfasts and inns. Many of these are only about 16 km (10 mi) from the park's south entrance. Delta sits north of Montrose and offers a similar range of accommodation types. Here, you'll be about 40 km (25 mi) from the park. About 56 km (35 mi) south of the park, the small town of Ouray offers a couple of hotels, some of which sit in restored brick Victorian buildings that characterize the town's architecture.
