Located in the town of Green River, and along the west bank of the Green River, Green River State Park covers 53 acres of flat fields interspersed with cottonwood trees. It’s a pleasant space to spend time in the shade of the trees reading a book or as a starting point for a boating expedition along the river.
With easy access to Green River, boating and fishing are very popular outdoor activities in the park. There is a golf course, a campground, and bird-watching opportunities to enjoy. The terrain here is mountainous, and the park is situated at an elevation of over 4,500 feet. Keep this in mind if camping with an RV in spring or autumn, when the temperatures could be lower than you expect.
To the east is the larger city of Grand Junction, just over the state line in Colorado while to the northeast is Utah's capital, Salt Lake City. Just to the south of the park is the city of Moab, close to the Arches National Park. When you book an RV in Emery County, the beautiful mountainous terrain of Utah is open to exploring.
Boating is very popular in Green River State Park, and it is the starting point for the 120-mile trip through Labyrinth and Stillwater Canyons. This trip can be taken most of the year, but in winter the river may be frozen. At the end of the trip, you will need to arrange your return to Green River, but local rental companies can help with this. Various permits are required to complete the journey, but again, local companies can help. There is a boat ramp in the park for launching your boat.
If you enjoy fishing, there are plenty of opportunities here. In plentiful supply are carp and catfish, but the unique native fish of Colorado, Pike Minnow, Razorback Sucker, Humpback Chub, and Bonytail Chub are protected and must be released if caught.
Part of the park is a nine-hole golf course with tree-lined fairways and plenty of water hazards to keep you concentrating. For something different, how about trying the 18-hole disc golf? This is a championship level course, and disc golf supplies can be bought from the clubhouse along with disc rental.
Booking an RV rental near Green River State Park not only gives you access to a beautiful recreation area but also Green River for fantastic whitewater expeditions.
There is a nice, tree-shaded campground at Green River State Park close to the water's edge, just perfect for camping with an RV. With around 80 sites suitable for tents or RVs and the majority having water and electric hookup, it could be perfect for a relaxing vacation.
On the campground, you’ll find modern restrooms with toilet facilities and hot showers, picnicking facilities and your pets are welcome to come along. You’ll find a ranger station on the campground where you can get advice on taking to the water and hiking trails in the area.
The town of Green River is right next to the state park, allowing you the ability to leave the rental RV in the campground and stroll through the park over to the town. Once there, you’ll find a few restaurants and fast-food places, a couple of stores for your supplies and some coffee shops for a well-earned rest! There are also a couple of gas stations on Main St when you need to top up the RV fuel.
Just over the Green River along Main St on the east bank is the John Wesley Powell River History Museum. The museum was built by the local community and opened its doors in 1990 and aims to explain the impact of the Green and Colorado Rivers on the development of the local area. A range of exhibits cover subjects such as the history of the area, a boat room with examples of the types of craft used locally and a dinosaur exhibition. The broad range of subjects covered, including local art, will give something for everyone to enjoy.
Right next to the Wesley Powel Museum is the rather odd sight of a huge slice of watermelon! It is claimed as the worlds largest watermelon, but since it’s made of wood, does that count? It does kind of fit in with the Melon Days Festival held in Green River every year.
The very popular annual Melon Days Festival takes place in Green River every September. The event has been running for over a century, having started in 1906 and now involves a car show, a running event, cooking, parades and much more. Live entertainment is on in the evenings with free concerts. A great family event if you’re RV camping at Green River State Park in September.
