Green River (town of), Utah Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

The river that gave the town of Green River its name is the main attraction of this small town. The river snakes through extremely remote canyons in central Utah north of the town and through red rock canyons south of town before merging with the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park. From town one can find some good white water rafting as well as peaceful and beautiful float trips. The town of Green River is also a good base from which to explore the starkly beautiful San Rafael Swell to the west.

Of note in town is the John Wesley Powell Museum, a good small museum about the explorer. Also in town is Green River State Park, a handy entry point for rafters of the river, and also a nice spot for a leisurely hike. A nine-hole golf course is part of the park.

Green River is located just along I-70 in east central Utah. It is 45 miles northwest of Arches National Park and 60 miles northwest of Canyonlands. Green River has a good selection of motels and campgrounds, including one in Green River State Park, and plenty of places to eat, as well as other essential services for the traveler.
