Green River State Park, UT site #4

Our 2nd night enroute to Bryce Canyon is at Green River State Park in Green River Utah.  Situated along a gentle bend in the Green River and within the city limits of Green River, UT, this is an oasis in the otherwise brown desert scenery.  But, this park need some TLC.  Low tree branches threaten A/C units and vent covers on taller rigs.

Irrigation is provided by an antiquated system that over-waters in some areas and leaves brown spots in others.  After the park manager turned on the water in our section, we’re left with a muddy puddle under the picnic table and a soaking wet RV pad along with water running down the sides of the trailer.  As evening falls, the mosquitoes that the over-watering  encourages are evident.  There are not many alternatives in this area, but we’d probably try to find something else on a subsequent visit to Green River in July or August.  In earlier or later seasons when irrigation isn’t as necessary, this might be an ideal location.

Our group of 3 rigs utilized sites #4, #5 and #23.  All provided water and electric along with a picnic table and fire pit.  There’s a dual lane dump station available in the park.
