Gates of Lodore Campground
Gates of Lodore Campground is located on the Green River at the boat ramp at the head of Lodore Canyon. The campground is located 106 miles north of the Canyon Visitor Center. The campground is popular with river rafters who often stay here before launching on the Green River. A permit is required for boating inside Dinosaur National Monument.
There are 19 sites, some with shade. The sites have tables and firepits. During the summer, there is running water and vault toilets, but no showers. The campground handles tents and RVs (but there are no hook-ups). Gates of Lodore Campground is open year-round, but winter access can be difficult due to snow.
