Arrived here after dark and tried Black Canyon North first. Unfortunately, there was someone already there and they weren't keen on having me join them so I decided to try Black Canyon South.

We weren’t going to stop here because it seemed so far off the freeway and we just needed a place to crash for a few hours, but we were glad we took the time. It was easy to get to and very quiet.
