Green River State Park RV & Campground Guide

Utah

Green River State Park

is a small oasis in the center of the Utah desert. This is the starting point for many river-rafting adventures. From here, you can raft more than 120 miles through some of the most spectacular desert scenery in the United States. If you’d prefer to enjoy the water from the shore, the park offers a golf course, world-class bird-watching, and plenty of fishing opportunities. Green River State Park sits near some of the most remarkable landscapes in Utah, making it an ideal base camp. Moab, which is home to Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, lies just 53 miles away, and Grand Junction, Colorado, is about 100 miles east.
