Campgrounds on the Green River
There is no camping allowed on the "A" section of the
river, but they have nice, improved boat-in campgrounds
on the "B" section between Little Hole and Brown's Park.
Campgrounds are $15 per night, and you must obtain a
permit. Permits can be picked up at the ranger station
at Little Hole. Online boat-in campground reservations
are accepted at four campsites: Big Pine 1 & 2,
Bootleg, Cat's Paw and Trail's End only. For the other
boat-in/hike-in sites you must pick your site and obtain
your permit the day of your float. Twelve
hike-in/boat-in campsites are available as first-come,
first-served and pack-in/pack-out.
