“Beach, river, rock formations, quiet!”

Reviewed Jun 18, 2018

Overall Rating

Lovely spot to relax and spend at least 1 night. Wade at the beach, or launch a boat into the Green River. Great breeze & water make 90 degrees seem cool. Some sites close together, but #8 has beach, table, fire ring, level spot for camper, and shade. Sites 10 and 11 also look great, and there are others closer to the main beach. Clean... more

“Hidden Gem close to National Parks!”

Reviewed Apr 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We came during spring break mid week and were pleasantly surprised to find only one or two other campers. When we left on Friday more people were starting to come. We got site 11 on the end, along the river with lots of space to explore. The campground has a huge soft sandy beach and my kids had a blast. You are less than a hour aw... more

“Perfect hidden gem! ”

This place was perfect for what we needed. We were 1 of 3 people here, it was quite and beautiful! Right on Green River and surrounded by buttes and cliffs. Our kids enjoyed throwing rocks in the river and exploring the wash where we saw wildlife (foxes, rabbits and lots of lizards! Campsite #11 has its own sandy white beach front! The... more

“Beautiful quiet spot”

Reviewed Sep 19, 2017

This place is called Swasey Campground and it is located just beyond Swasey Beach, which is a day use area on the Green River, part of Lower Gray Canyon Recreation Area. Our rig was too big to fit in sites 3-12 so we parked in a broad relatively flat area adjacent to Site 1, which is designated as a Group Site. There was a nice breeze ... more

“Amazing camping on the Green River, Beach, Buttes and rapids”

Reviewed Sep 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Easy access from Green River, probably not the easiest for big trailers or rigs over 25 feet. There is a fabulously large site, last one up river, but its reserved for "group camping". This is a great spot with a loop for smaller rigs. Even if you aren't into rafting, SUP or kayaking the river, this is a great camp. Camping right... more

“Off the beaten path...with your own river”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2016

Overall Rating

This was easy to get to off of Highway 70 near Green River. It's a paved road except for the last 1/2 mile or so but the dirt road is smooth. We loved the nearby sound of the River and the stark beauty of the area. It seems to fill up with locals near the weekend but we had no problem finding a site mid week.

“A beautiful spot”

Reviewed Sep 28, 2015

Overall Rating

Dry camping among cottonwoods, by the Green River, surrounded by buttes and cliffs. Nine miles north of town. Rafters and kayakers use the boat ramp, locals tend to use the beach. Sites 1 and 2 are walk-in group tent sites, and site 12 is a drive-in group site, but non-groups occasionally use them. The rest of the sites tend toward the... more
