The recreation area is just south of Gunnison National Forest and east of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. There's no shortage of options for scenic drives and hikes. Try hiking the Warner Point Nature Trail on the South Rim of Black Canyon, or the Deadhorse Trail on the North Rim.
The steep canyon walls of Gunnison Basin were carved out by the Gunnison River, which once flowed with powerful intensity fueled by the snowmelt of nearby mountains. Today, the Gunnison river is dammed in three places, creating three large and beautiful reservoirs to be enjoyed by visitors. The land is characterized by semi-arid shrubland with vast expanses of sagebrush. The natural features and ecosystems of Curecanti vary greatly, with Riparian habitats, epic canyons and lush patches of Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir and aspen trees.
Jet skiing, water skiing and canoeing are some of the many water activities available on the reservoir. Birding is also rewarding, with chances to see the black-billed magpie. Along the shrubland, visitors can spot Gunnison's prairie dogs popping out of their holes.
Lake Fork campground is located off of Hwy 50 between Gunnison and Montrose, along Blue Mesa reservoir.
