Split Mountain Campground
The Split Mountain Group Campground is located along the banks of the Green River at and elevation of 4800 feet. The highly eroded Split Mountain towers over the campground. The campground is near the famous dinosaur quarry, where you can see 149 million year old dinosaur bones still encased in the rock. Right beside the campground is the Split Mountain Boat Ramp where river rafters come off the Green River after trips through Dinosaur National Monument's canyons.
Split Mountain Group Campground is located four miles east of the Quarry Visitor Center off the Cub Creek Road. The road to the campground is paved but does have several sharp turns and steep grades.
Split Mountain is a group campground during peak season. During the non-peak season (early October to early April), Split Mountain Campground is open to all visitors on a first come, first-served basis. There is no water, but a vault toilet is available. There are no reservations at Split Mountain during the off-season and no fees are charged.

A population of peregrine falcons has been established at Dinosaur National Monument. The park's rugged canyons make ideal habitat for the once endangered raptor. Fossils show that dinosaurs evolved into birds--and so still live in modified form at Dinosaur.
