Curecanti National Recreation Area


Stevens Creek Campground lies on the north shore at the eastern end of Blue Mesa Reservoir. This is the closest campground to the town of Gunnison, CO. Popular with boaters, Stevens Creek has easy access to the reservoir. It is very sunny and bright, and the scent of sagebrush adds to the camping experience.A bit downstream is the Morrow Point Reservoir and the Crystal Reservoir, both surrounded by the steep cliffs of the Black Canyon.


Stand up paddleboarding, fishing, canoeing and other water sports are popular here.__ Bird Watching is rewarding throughout the park but especially so in this shallower end of the reservoir which is ideal for waterfowl.__ Hikers, try the 1.5 mile (2.4) Neversink Trail, which meanders along the Gunnison River upstream of Blue Mesa Reservoir. Check the park's Hiking web page for more information.


The 53-site campground offers waterfront-sites and a wide variety of amenities including a picnic area, self pay station and drinking water available late-May to mid-September.

Natural Features

The campground sits at an elevation of 7,540 feet (2298 m) and is characterized by a semi-arid, treeless shrubland. The mesa landscape is covered with sagebrush and receives less than 12 inches (30 cm) of rain each year.

Not for tent camping

My partner and I pulled up, got disappointed. The site looks like an RV neighborhood, and is not a tent campground. The sites are all close really close together (offering no privacy) and not to mention there are no trees anywhere. We tried to pitch a tent but couldn’t let go of any side of it for even a second. There are no trees so it’s constantly windy and the exposure is ultra high. We didn’t even finish packing up, we just left and found another site that was more catered to the type of camping we were looking for. Thankfully we found a site near by, with fishing, running water, firewood and everything else you could want, that catered more to rent camping.

This is an RV campsite. Not for tents.

Nice stop for the night

The reservoir is quite low (summer 2022) so don't expect to be close to the water. No trees; just typical low scrub. Reasonably spaced sites. Water spigot spaced throughout. One bar cell coverage.

Good stopping point

We spent one night here on our way further West. Cheap site with nice views of the Reservoir. Basic site and no running water in campground. Vault toilets were as clean as can be expected.
