Dinosaur National Monument - Green and Yampa River Permits, CO

02 Deerlodge Park, Yampa River

Permit Availability

Entrance Description

The Yampa River begins at Deerlodge Park and rushes downstream 44 miles to join the Green River at Echo Park. The Yampa, called the Bear River by trappers and early settlers, is the largest unregulated tributary within the Colorado river system, as such, it has a shorter season more marked by fluctuations in water level as the river is dependent on the snows received over the winter. It is characterized by such famous rapids as Teepee, Big Joe, and Warm Springs as well as numerous smaller, named rapids.
