“A nice out of the way park with a great view of the Green River!”

Overall Rating

We chose to stay in this area to visit the Flaming Gorge and to hike. Also, we were arriving from the north so this was easier to get access. We stayed after their main season so all sites were Walk Up. We chose a pull thru in Loop A right over the river. All the site and roads are paved and included a large concrete patio with a table, fire pit, and grill stand. Our site had 50 amp electric. There are no water or sewer sites but there are areas to take on water and a large dump station for $6. The peninsula that the park is located on is a pronghorn habitat area so the park has a lot of pronghorn roaming around. There is a great cove right off the park where you can tie your boat, kayak, or canoe up during your stay. Our $10 a night price was with Senior Access Pass. You can visit Flaming Gorge and Dinosaur National Monument from this area with some driving.

F8 First Come first serve

A fellow camper suggested we try to go to Flaming Gorge, which is part of the Ashley National Forest, sometime during our travels in NE Utah. This area extends through both Wyoming and Utah. We came in from Jackson then Green River, but you can come in on the east side as well.

A rep in the Jackson visitors center said “go west”, so we did. He said there were many places to dry camp on that side, but as we drove down, we didn’t see that many. We saw a sign that said camping at the Lucerne Marina and Campground, so we headed in toward the water.

It was Labor Day weekend, so we kept fingers crossed. Very nice staff (mother and daughter) greeted us and gave a tour of the available spaces. They keep a board of the inventory. We got a space in Loop F which is first-come, first-served and the least services: no electric, no water, no sewer and no showers. Each site did come with a metal shelter, fire ring and picnic table in good order. Loop E has electric and metal covers etc. Loop D seems to be the best with nice “patios” with new covers, cement fire rings, and even sand lots for tents. Also electric as well and central showers. Loops A, B and C had electric and picnic tables but no shelter from sun except for group areas in the loops.
Loops A,B,C, D and E are reservable. The views in loop F near the water were the best although it lacked amenities. We had F8 with unobstructed views of the lake although it meant southern exposure.
Not much privacy but ok.

The attendants were extremely friendly and even delivered wood we had purchased upon registering.

Downfalls: the sites are not consistent. The areas are mainly messy gravel with cement log boundry markers. Also blotchy grass and lots of anetelope droppings. There is a herd that runs the grounds and leaves a mess.

The marina is a short walk away with a store similar to any small marina.

The bathrooms could use some major cleaning and updating but it was cheap and we were self-contained, so we didn’t venture in.

The main draw is the view: Water with mountains. It’s a lot about the boats as most of the campers had trailers with boats at their sites. The marina is pretty popular and even has a food trailer/restaurant for coffee and breakfast/snackas a short walk away.

Basic. Not much cell service except for the mornings for some reason.

Good for a night or two.
