Overview

Overview

The Green River Campground is located along the banks of the Green River at an elevation of 4,750 feet. The highly eroded Split Mountain is visible to the north. The campground is about five miles from the famous dinosaur quarry, where you can see 149 million year old dinosaur bones still encased in the rock. A short distance from the campground is the Split Mountain Boat Ramp where river rafters come off the Green River after trips through Dinosaur National Monument's canyons. GR

Natural Features:

The campground is set on a bench along the Green River and is dotted by Fremont cottonwood trees and sagebrush. Many campsites offer views of Split Mountain. Some sites have shade while others are very sunny.

Recreation:

Dinosaur National Monument covers over 210,000 acres. The monument features two visitor centers - one in Colorado and one in Utah. You can see over 1,500 dinosaur fossils still in the rock inside the Quarry Exhibit Hall. There are miles of trails for hiking and cross-country travel. Whitewater rafting (permit required) is popular on the Green and Yampa Rivers. Numerous cultural sites reveal stories of the people who lived here before and include Fremont petroglyphs, homestead cabins and former ranches. Hiking trails allow in-depth exploration. Several roads provide access to key destinations and scenic sites. Scenic drives allow the windshield visitor to see spectacular geology.

Facilities:

Green River Campground has 80 campsites suitable for tents or RVs. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Drinking water and flush toilets are available. There are no showers or electrical hook-ups for RVs.

Nearby Attractions:

The Quarry Exhibit Hall allows visitors to see approximately 1,500 dinosaur fossils exposed in the rock. Besides the monument, nearby Utah State Parks, the Ashley National Forest, Flaming Gorge National Recreational Area and Bureau of Land Management sites provide additional recreational opportunities.
