Green River Campground
The Green River Campground is located along the banks of the Green River at an elevation of 4800 feet. The highly eroded Split Mountain towers to the north of the campground. The famous dinosaur quarry, where you can see 149 million year old dinosaur bones still encased in the rock is approximately five miles from the campground. Also nearby is the Split Mountain Boat Ramp where river rafters come off the Green River after trips through Dinosaur National Monument's canyons. Just a short drive away, you can see petroglyphs left by the Fremont people, explore the homestead of Josie Morris, hike numerous trails or maybe catch of wildlife like mule deer and bighorn sheep.
Did You Know?
Split Mountain, the name John Wesley Powell gave to one of the Dinosaur’s most recognizable features, is aptly named: over millions of years, the Green River has carved a canyon into the center of the mountain, splitting it in two.
