“Dispersed Camping Overlooking the Green River”

Overall Rating

There are dozens of already impacted dispersed sites along the dirt road leading to Green River Lakes. We chose a spot over looking the river and good distance from the road. No amenities or phone service. We were surprised how busy the road is going back to Green River Lakes. It's a very dusty and washboard road. Was happy to put some distance between our that and our site.

Take a dead-end dirt road, and send it deep into Wyoming's utterly spectacular Wind River Mountains where a pair of large natural high alpine lakes and the mighty Green River flows from its headwaters.

This is truly one of the most aesthetically stunning boondocking sites we've ever found, and that's saying a lot. When you arrive at the end of FR-650 there's a cattle guard 1/4 mile before the lake, and only camping in designated sites (i.e., the Green River Lake Campground https://www.campendium.com/green-river-lakes-campground) is permitted beyond that point. However, for the entire 19-mile stretch from the end of pavement to that cattle guard, the road is sprinkled with exceptional boondocking sites on both sites, all along the Green River which flows crystal clear below the lakes.

The further you go up FR-650 the more scenic the boondocking spots get. We landed in the final spot along the riverbank just outside of that cattle guard, only a quarter mile from the lake, which allowed easy access to the lake for kayaking. On the Sunday before the 4th of July we found only one (count 'me, one!) other boat on the water as we paddled, a family in a drift boat. After paddling, we relaxed in camp as the Green River floated past and we watched pronghorn graze in the meadows lining the opposite bank. Another drift boat with fishermen asked if they could use our camp to pull their boat from the water, and we happily obliged. Yes, it's that kind of peaceful!

A word of caution: that 19 miles of dirt FR-650 is heavily washboarded and has small rocks embedded within it, even though it's graded. As a result, count on it taking an hour to drive that 19 miles. On our way out we lost two bumper end caps from the vibration, and the emergency exit clamps on our dinette window repeatedly let go. But if any place was worth the inconvenience, this is it.

FYI there's no cell service out here. Zero. You're back to asphalt and well down WY-352 before you get your first burst of notifications, even boosted.
