1 Reviews & Comments About Black Canyon City


09/10/2018

Black Canyon City is a little town about half an hour north of Phoenix. It is in the foothills of the mountains to the north of Phoenix, and in an hour's drive, you can be at 8000 feet of elevation in the mountainous region around Flagstaff. Our stay in Black Canyon City was so peaceful! We stayed in the Black Canyon City Campground, and the site we were in offered us an incomparable view of the mountain range to the west. An hour's drive in any direction provided beautiful scenery of deserts filled with saguaro cactus, mountains, and even wild burros on occasion. There were also a variety of decent restaurants within an hour in most directions. We very much enjoyed our time there, and would love to return one day!

Anthem, AZ: a suburb to the north of Phoenix, which offered shopping, drug stores, and restaurants within a half hour's drive from Black Canyon City. Rock Springs Cafe was a good, although busy, place to go for a good slice of pie. Nora Jean's Coffee Kitchen was a great breakfast place, and Chillean's on 17 was an okay BBQ restaurant.
