Indian Crossing Campground

From floating to a remote campsite along the Green River to camping at a developed site next to a historic ranch, the Vernal Field Office provides camping opportunities for all recreationalists. Contact the field office to learn more. Where the Green River enters the remote valley of Browns Park, this campground can be found. 

Developed camping is available at Bridge Hollow or Indian Crossing campgrounds nestled along the Green River, adjacent to the John Jarvie Ranch. There you’ll have several launch points for floating the Green River. If you're a fisherman, you won't want to miss the blue ribbon fishing opportunity from the Flaming Gorge Dam down to the Colorado State line. All campsites within the Indian Crossing and Bridge Hollow campgrounds are first come first served. 

20 individual campsites and one group campsite include picnic tables, fire rings, parking areas, and toilets.
