It is all about perception. Compared to the Northeast, the river is muddy and not that fast moving. The rocks are smaller and so are the rapids. It is a nice paddle. The recommended trip is from Nefertiti to Swasey's Beach, but you can go...More

Nice place along the river and a lot of space for privacy. Good scenery and easy to get to. We would go back to this location.

Basic beach access to the Green River. It does have a boat ramp for launching and toilets. Other than that nothing special here.

We decided to just ride back to Swasey's Beach for a look. It was OK but the current is very swift and if you have children I would be extra cautious. The beach is nice and would be a fun place for the kids to...More

Paved road up to the boat launch and then it turns gravel. Wonderful site for river fun, especially for families. The BLM provides both day use and overnight camping facilities. The beach is at the beginning of Lower Gray Canyon, not even a half mile...More

Sandy beach, cool river, with intermittent shallow sections for short-leggers to safely explore. The action and thrill is riding a rubber innertube (with a life jacket!!!) down the rapids. Bring your drinks, shade, and food and sit back and relax.

This is one pretty spot! Beautiful white sand between your toes, mellow water and not cold at all. Beach is clean and a great place to spend the day with the family!

Hi, most of the road is fine. The last mile or so into the campground is one lane and gravel. There was a 24' trailer parked in a site next to the river when I was there.
