Big Pine 2 is a boat-in campsite along the Green River, located about 3 miles below Little Hole Boat Ramp at an approximate elevation of 6,000 feet.

The Green River provides spectacular fishing and river-running opportunities, as well as unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated alongside the beautiful Green River in an area typical of a high desert environment. Shady juniper, cottonwood and ponderosa pine trees forest the riverbank. Summer wildflowers dot the landscape.


The Green River offers excellent fishing for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Rafting and kayaking are very popular activities.


Big Pine 2 contains one reservable site equipped with a picnic table, campfire ring with benches, tent pads and a blind for a portable toilet.
