Overview

Overview

Dripping Springs Campground is situated at an elevation of 6,000 feet in rolling high desert terrain near Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The campground is part of the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area in the Ashley National Forest. Campers frequent Dripping Springs for its close proximity to the Green River and Little Hole, both of which offer excellent rafting and world-class fishing opportunities.

Natural Features:

Nearly every site within the campground offers scenic reservoir and mountain views. Russian olive trees and cottonwoods dot the rolling, sagebrush-covered landscape. Shade is limited, and temperatures range from warm days to cool nights.

Recreation:

Dripping Springs is surrounded by places to boat, raft, fish, hike and mountain bike. Little Hole Boat Launch and Day-Use Area on the Green River is nearby, offering great rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout fishing.

The 7-mile Little Hole National Recreation Trail begins near the campground, meandering along the Green River from Flaming Gorge Dam. The trail can be done in shorter segments or as a whole.

Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is known not only for its beautiful red cliffs but also for its world-class fishing, boating, hiking, camping, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving.
