Elk Creek Campground and Marina

Mark these dates on your calendar to join us for a spectacular Colorado Western Slope weekend on the Blue Mesa Reservoir, Colorado’s largest body of water. Plans include a pontoon ride on the Blue Mesa on Friday. Of course, everyone can certainly bring her own kayak or boat. For land lovers, we will also plan sightseeing drives that take you along the upper Black Canyon Rim, or we might head to Crested Butte for a bit of shopping and lunch in this delightful ski town.

Saturday, we will take a thrilling and educational ranger led boat trip from Morrow Point down the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River, named black because the gorge is so steep and narrow that very little light penetrates the bottom. This is a do-not-miss opportunity to see the Grand Canyon of Colorado from the water with thousand-foot vertical walls on each side. We will make a group reservation on May 1 for up to 42 women. The payment amount of $24 per person is due to us by April 15. Plan a leisurely walk to the boat down 200-plus steps plus a 3/4-mile level hike to the launch site. There are numerous benches as you travel down the steps and walk to the boat.

Saturday evening after our dinner, we will head into Gunnison to their observatory and star gaze.

We will camp at the Elk Creek Campground and Marina on Loop D. This standard electric 28-site loop offers 50-amp service and is a very short distance from the lake and marina. Reservations can be made online beginning January 20 at These sites are electric only. Loops A, B and C are dry-camp loops (adjacent to Loop D).

Elk Creek Campground and Marina, Loop D is located at 102 Elk Creek, Gunnison, CO 81230.
