Campground Reviews

KOA Green River

KOA Green River


KOA Green River was our final stop before arriving at our next workamping gig in Ouray, Colorado. It’s a journey park which under the KOA rating system is set up for short stays and usually located close to an interstate. This campground definitely fit the bill as it was located just under two miles off Interstate 70 at Exit 64. The campground is also open year-round.

Conveniently Located

This KOA is close to a gas station/convenience store and Tamarisk Restaurant which is within walking distance of the campground. So if you don’t want to unhook you can walk to the restaurant. Part of your campground welcome package is a coupon for the restaurant where you receive a KOA discount. 

We had made our reservation before arriving so check-in was a breeze. The office/camp store was fairly large and well-stocked. There was a propane filling station across from the office which we actually utilized before we left.

No Escort

After being handed our check-in package we were off to our site. We did not get an escort but the campground is not all that big and our site was easy to find. Our site was a corner site so while we were able to fit the RV relatively easily, we had a little trouble finding a spot for the truck. We wound up positioning it half onto the road.

Behind the office and making up the “roadside” perimeter of the park are basketball courts, the pool, some tent sites, parking areas, and the K-9 park. There are laundry facilities and restrooms/showers behind the office building also.

Turbo-Twister Slide

Since our visit to the campground was considered “off-season” the pool was closed. It is open June to September. It should be noted that this campground is the only campground in Green River with a pool, which includes what they refer to as a Turbo-Twister Slide. In addition, they also rent Pedal Kart bicycles.

The campground is laid out in three sections. The furthest section from the office is comprised of long pull-through sites. This makes up an overflow area. At the time of our visit, this area was a little unkempt and overgrown. We were there during the “off” season. On the outside perimeter of this section was a grassy field.

Our Site Was A Little Tight

Making your way back towards the office was a full hook-up pull-through section. This is the area we were in. The sites were laid out horizontally, each had a picnic table and firepit. As I said earlier, we were on the end so our site was a little tight but the other sites in this section were a little better. The sites were fairly level.

The back perimeter of the park was bordered by what appeared to be a grassy farm area. 

The Final Section

Making your way back towards the office and comprising the final section was another horizontally laid out area consisting of pull-through full hook-up sites. On the side perimeter of that section were some cabins and about six back-in sites. There was more farmland behind that. 

This brings you back around to the office area. At the end of this row and across from the office is the propane filling station, pet walk, and dumpsters. 

Storage

The campground offers dry storage for RVs, trailers, boats or any other vehicle. The storage area is uncovered. It is a great option if you are planning to visit the Green River and need a safe place to store your vehicle. 

Cable is available on certain sites and you would need to make your request when you make your reservation. 

There is a Tesla supercharging station just across the street from the campground at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum.

Final Thoughts

While staying at the campground we learned about the Utah Super Six where you can visit six parks in six days. We found out that people will use the campground as their base camp for the Utah Super Six, which is a one-week itinerary to see six parks which include Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Goblin Valley, San Rafael Swell, and Swasey’s Beach. Anyone who knows us knows how much we love visiting state and national parks. This Utah Super Six adventure is certainly on our bucket list and we would definitely return to this campground on a future visit to the area.
