Green River State Park is home to the beautiful Green River which spans over 650 miles, winding throughout several states before making its way into Utah. Whitewater rafting is a typical past time here, with several river canyons offering everything from flat, docile water to raging whitewater rapids.
To enjoy the Green River via raft, you'll need to get the prerequisite permits from both the Utah Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service. For beginners, park officials suggest the Labyrinth and Stillwater Canyon entrances, as these are rated explicitly for beginners who haven't hit the river and need a little guidance first.
They provide a 3-4 hour float through several of the picturesque parts of the canyon systems. If you'd like to bring your canine, you'll need to have all safety equipment before entering the rafting grounds. Canines are required to have life vests along with their human companions.
For golf enthusiasts, a challenging 9-hole course offers a chance to observe the beautifully manicured lawns that make it such a local draw. Rental is available for clubs, as well as at golf carts for a nominal fee. Canines are unfortunately forbidden from the golf course, as well as the indoor structures associated with it.
If you're looking to spend the night, Green River State Park offers a beautiful desert oasis with a total of 72 traditional sites to enjoy. These all come standard with electric and water hookups, in case you plan on bringing an RV along for the ride. In addition to these primitive sites, there are rustic cabins available for guests who want a bit more of a comfortable stay.
These cabins feature double bunk beds and a futon, and can comfortably sleep up to six. A full bathroom, refrigerator, and microwave are available at most of these sites as well. Canines are allowed on the campgrounds provided they stay on a leash no longer than six feet. The cabins allow pets for an additional fee.
