Camping in Green River Area Campgrounds
Forest Service Campgrounds are located throughout Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and range from primitive, dispersed sites, hike-in/boat-in only sites, to single and group campsites with water and flush toilets. The recreation area enforces a 16-day limit per site. See table below for more information.

Some facilities and services may be seasonal; contact the Flaming Gorge Ranger District, Ashley National Forest for more information by calling 801-784-3445 or writing PO Box 279, Manila, UT 84046. The campgrounds officially begin taking reservation about April 11, but many are open on a first-come basis.

Forest Service Campgrounds do not have hookups; private campgrounds in Manila and Vernal, Utah and Green River and Rock Springs, Wyoming offer full service campgrounds.

Trailer dump stations are located at the following locations:

  • Antelope Flats
  • Buckboard Crossing
  • Cedar Springs/Deer Run
  • Firefighters Memorial
  • Firehole
  • Lucerne Valley

Cedar Springs, Deer Run and Firehole campgrounds are the only forest Service site with showers facilities. Commercial showers are also available in Dutch John at the Conoco station, as well as Green River Outfitters.

Some campsites may be reserved in advance by calling 1-877-444-6777.

Or you can now make your campground reservations online by clicking on this link to
NATIONAL RECREATION RESERVATION SERVICE . Please note campground reservations cannot be made past Labor Day as the campgrounds are officially closed for the remainder of the year.

Boat-in/Hike-in Campgrounds on the Green River
There is no camping allowed on the "A" section of the river, but they have nice, improved boat-in campgrounds on the "B" section between Little Hole and Brown's Park. Campgrounds are $14 per night, and you must obtain a permit. Permits can be picked up at the ranger station at Little Hole. Online boat-in campground reservations are accepted at four campsites: Big Pine 1 & 2, Bootleg, Cat's Paw and Trail's End only. For the other boat-in/hike-in sites you must pick your site and obtain your permit the day of your float. Twelve hike-in/boat-in campsites are available as first-come, first-served and pack-in/pack-out. We did an overnight float in August 14 & 15 (a Monday/Tuesday), and virtually had our choice of campgrounds as only two out of the 16 were in use! They were a little more occupied over the weekend, but still about half were available!
