The vibe at Green River Campground
Drop some Green River Campground knowledge on us.
Site 23, good shade. Sites in B loops seem to have bigger trees for best shade - it gets hot. Sites are pretty roomy, not a busy place. On 4th of July half the campsites were empty. Lots of killer chipmunks so don't leave stuff out. They had a ranger do a show/discussion each night at 7:30pm. Took a bath in the nearby Green River, which is in walking distance, but not that close to sites. Self-serve firewood, $6 a bundle. There's a 2 mile trail to the group campground - boat launch with stunning river views. Boat launch is a good place to play in the water with small kids. Everyone should do Hog Canyon hike - it was awesome. Like nothing I've ever seen before. Also, go to Harper's Corner,
Just the drive to this campground had me pleased with my decision to book here. Located along the Green River with hiking trails starting at the far end of the campground, this was a great location to see as much of the monument as possible in two days. Fossils, petroglyphs, wildlife, and history are all a short walk or drive away. Find a shady spot in the summer heat (keep in mind where the sun will rise and set), stake your tent and lighter camp items tightly - a surprise cloudburst and wind storm on a clear day in July rearranged my camp while I was hiking the nearby Sound of Silence trail.
