Basic campground

Clean sites, very overpaved. Picnic tables, firepits, pit toilets. Firewood sold by host $7/bundle. $24/night single site. The campground is kind of on a cliff overlooking the water but there really isn’t any good view or way down to the water. Very pretty sunset.

Great campground. Spots aren't too close together.

Great campground.  The sites are separate enough where you're not to close to your neighbors.  The area was burned several years ago, so there are no trees.  However, the grass has grown back in and its still a very, VERY beautiful campground (IMO). I was able to get a spot on back to back weekends despite not having a reservation (Lucky, maybe).b The bathrooms are clean and if you park further back in the campground, that bathroom has a flushable toilet, sink and an air dryer for your hands. Pretty impressive.

Convenient

We hadn't done much research in this area and hadn't planned where to go so we decided to "glamp" at the KOA.  For a KOA this was pretty nice. Restrooms were clean. Lots of activities for children.  It was expensive for close together sites and only electric and water hookups.  We did have a nice shade tree however and were able to run our A/C.  The proximity to Dinosaur National Monument was the reason we stayed 2 nights.  We explored the Utah part of the Monument (where the dinosaurs are) and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the quarry, petroglyphs and cabin.

Close to lake

We stayed here suring the annual paddlefest 2019. They had a waterslide down the boat ramp and water trampoline that arent normally there. This year they have added a hammock rack to the campground that holds 9 hammocks. Theyve also added an on site kayak/ paddle board rentals. Dogs are allowed on leash. They do,have running water spigots and bathrooms on site

Pretty Decent

Good spot, close to the town of Manila if you need some supplies! Sheep Creek runs behind the camp ground and the Flaming Gorge is just down the road. We enjoyed our stay there in our brand new motorhome!👍🏻

Neat and Quiet

Pros:

Quiet

Balance of privacy with proximity to other sites

**Inexpensive**

Unique location

Fire pits 

COWS!

Cons:

Difficult, but fun drive

About an hour from the nearest town

Lake is more of a chilly swamp, but still enjoyable

**BRING CASH**

Nice views

Nice campground but a little cramped for my taste, spaces were pretty close together. Running water & flush toilets but no electricity. It does sit along the banks of the Green River with mountains in the background.

Great view of Flaming Gorge

A nice clean & quite campground with a great view of Flaming Gorge from the site we stayed at. Flush toilets, no showers, & no electricity but did have access to running water. Flaming Gorge resort less than five minutes away with restaurant, general store, & sporting goods available.

Roomy and Gorgeous

Pleasantly surprised by this campground. Unlike many campground where you are elbow to elbow with your neighbors, this one is very spacious and gives you quite bit of breathing room. Very well kept. Clean and quiet. There are several nearby trails that are easily accessed plus the nearby Red Canyon Lodge where you can fish, rent a paddleboat/canoe, have a bite to eat or ride horses. This campground is about 20 minutes from Flaming Gorge Dam.

Incredible vistas and sunset

Has showers, bathrooms and camp sites 32-33 in loop B have incredible view of the high dessert. Definitely high country with winds blowing all day but by sundown the wind had died down enough for a fire and the sunset was freaking amazing! I’ll definitely go back but will be watching the wind conditions.

Awesome swimming

Nice campground. Fairly busy. Great for water sport and kids.

Beautiful view

Quiet spots, beautiful view, nice hiking, great for kids.

Beautiful view and quiet!

Nice spots not too close together. Amazing view. Bathrooms, aka holes in the ground but well kept!

Roomy campground

Nice campground plenty of space for any RV/trailer. bathrooms were clean. not the best campground for tents if you don't like being in open space. Couple minutes from Manila where there is store, gas, and rv dump spot. etc

Clean and well kept campground with clean flush toilets.

We stayed three nights at the Antelope Flat Campground on the east shore of Flaming Gorge. The campground itself is a bit dated, but we were OK with it. Seems to be best for tent camping, there are RV spots available but without hook ups. There is a dump station. Tent sites are well kept and well maintained. We met the camp hosts for 2019, they were a very nice older couple. Seems like the wife maintains the bathrooms with flush toilets. Super clean! And her husband maintains the sites. All sites and fire rings were clean and free of weeds and debris. He worked everyday we were there on a new site. Kudos to them! Campground had super easy access to the boat ramp where we launched our kayak. Great spot to launch. Also it can get very windy!!!!!

Great views!

Trash dumpster was far away but great sites.

Clean and big sites

Friendly host.

This is an easy place to camp with amazing views.

So this is on the Sheep Creek canyon loop which is a 2 lane road all paved that goes through some of the most amazing views around. There are lots of trails and lots of caves you can hike to and explore. If you like to explore caves this is a really awesome place. We camped here on the way to Flaming Gorge and it in an amazing place. The camp ground is nice they have outhouse style bathrooms and picnic tables and lots of trees and close to the creek so that is relaxing and helps you fall asleep fast at night. We stayed in June and there was lots of space and hardly no one on the road up the loop only saw a few other cars. This drive is worth going to go camping there. Red rocks and beauty all around.

Fun place to stay close to Flaming Gorge/Green River.

We stayed here on a scout camp out for a couple of days we stayed in a group sight # 10 and it had 2 picnic tables and offered lots of room. We had 6 tents set up and there was still lots of room. There was plenty of parking we had at one time 2 cars a big van and my truck and drift boat and had no trouble with parking in the double spot.  We were right next to the camp host and next to the bathrooms with running water and hot showers.

The campground is a short walk or drive to the marina. We caught lots of fish and crawfish from the shore at the marina and the kids all had fun.

The camp sight has lots of Cider trees, and pine trees and amazing views. Amazing sunset and sunrises as well. There is running water for RV and lots of room. It wasn't full in June and there were still lots of places to camp.

This is in a great location if you are going fishing in the Green river or on Flaming Gorge. We were only 10 minutes to the put in of the A section and within walking distant to the marina for Flaming Gorge. We did the free dam tour it is a must see if in the area. You are only a couple of minutes drive to Flaming Gorge Lodge if need a hot meal or fishing equipment they have a great fly shop, store, and cafe. If you forget any food items like ketchup they sell everything at good pricey. Plus it's a great place to get more ice and a coke.

Fire pits with a nice heavy grill on them. We used it to cook steaks and they were excellent. Also helpful when we cooked crawfish one night. The camp host sells firewood if needed. I was able to try out my new Grubsticks and made some awesome s'mores #grubstick, #Ilovemynewgrubsticks, #bestsmoresever.

Dodge the sprinklers!

This was a really nice campground. They had two loops, loop A was mostly for RVs with hookups and loop B had standard sites (we stayed in this loop). The campground was very clean, really nice bathrooms and showers minus the fact that the showers get locked at 9pm so you have to plan ahead and hope everyone else isn’t using the showers when you go. The main inconvenience (and reason i only gave 4 stars) the sprinklers! I assume they are trying to grow grass but loop B had an abundance of sprinklers going non stop. We were able to find a site out of the path of the sprinklers but most were getting soaked! You also had to dodge them when going to the bathhouse, even walking on the road you had to go out of your way to avoid them. I’m sure this isn’t a long term thing but I did see where one person covered their picnic area with plastic. It’s an inconvenience but the campground itself is really nice! We arrived later and there was a self pay station at the host site on loop A. We stayed one night in a standard site for $20. The hookup sites were a little bit more but I think it was still under $30. Clean water and dump station nearby (unsure if there was a fee for the dump station)

Amazing views and saw sheep

This is an amazing campgrounds. Nice big spots. I camped in June and there was only 2 people using the campground. There is water hookups with outhouse style bathrooms and picnic tables. Amazing views of Flaming Gorge resivore.

We saw big horn sheep right by camp. The look out is within walking distance and it is close to the trailhead to the loop trail. Tent camping and RV this is a nice set up.

Great place

Super clean and well maintained. Large park for kids. Has a pool but this wasn’t open while we stayed. Access to the lake is about 6 miles and access to national park activities close and easy to get to. Would recommend if you are KOA campers.

Group camping

this campground has a lot of wide open spaces for group campaigns but you lacked the tree coverage to do that it's also nice because it's right on the Green River so it is a spot where rafting boats come off just to know that.

Fun little camp spots on the Green River

It's a nice little Kim spot about 9 miles from the dinosaur national monument visitor center Utah side. There's a lot of chipmunks and if you have allergies cottonwood trees. Also the ground not to level so for tent camping it's takes a little bit to find a spot to lay your tent. just a few minutes up the road there split mountain which is for group Canton so there's more white out spaces for Tent's but you also sacrifice to tree cover on hot days.

Diverse beautiful landscapes.

Spent 2 nights at the Green River Campground. Loops A and C are first come, if you need shade take loop B or C. Loop B reservations only. All sites are nicely spaced with no designated tent pad. Finding a level spot might be difficult. Beautiful dark sky area and the stars at night are awesome. At night you can hear the Green River-which is near by. My T-Mobile service was great and they also have firewood to purchase if you like. Flush toilets and water. No showers or other amenities. Remember it’s the desert so bring plenty of water when hiking at near by Dinosaur National Monument, which where the camp is located in. Nice quiet campground definitely will come back.

Very pretty

Great campground. Very pretty location.

Great Backdrop

Easy access, paved road all the way up the canyon. Only a few sites that back up to the creek. Amazing sunset with the red canyon wall in the background. Intermittent cell service.

Scenic & Secluded

We had the whole campground to ourselves. Very nice facilities and clean camp sites, some secluded more than others. Getting to the site from either direction is simple and the roads were in good shape. No cell service.

Great Marina

Fantastic fishing. Great place to launch your boat.
