The Split Mountain Group Campground is located along the banks of the Green River at an elevation of 4,800 feet. The highly eroded Split Mountain towers over the campground.
The campground is near the famous dinosaur quarry, where you can see 149 million year old dinosaur bones still encased in the rock. Adjacent to the campground is the Split Mountain Boat Ramp where river rafters come off the Green River after trips through Dinosaur National Monument's canyons.
Dinosaur National Monument covers over 210,000 acres. The monument features two visitor centers, the Canyon Visitor Center in Colorado and the Quarry Visitor Center in Utah. On the Utah side, experience the Quarry Exhibit Hall, where you can view over 1,500 dinosaur fossils still in the rock.
Throughout the monument, several roads provide access to key destinations and scenic sites. There are miles of trails for hiking and cross-country travel. Whitewater rafting (permit required) is popular on the Green and Yampa Rivers. Numerous cultural sites reveal stories of the people who lived here before and include Fremont petroglyphs, homestead cabins and former ranches. Scenic drives allow visitors to see the spectacular geology in the area.
The campground offers four group sites that accommodate both tents and recreational vehicles. Each campsite has a picnic table, campfire ring with grill and can accommodate up to 25 people and six vehicles. Drinking water and flush toilets are available from early April to early October. However, no water, sewer or electric hookups are available for recreational vehicles.
The campground is set on a bench along the Green River and is dotted by Fremont Cottonwood and sagebrush. Campsites offer views of Split Mountain. Limited shade is provided by the few trees in the campground.
In addition to the monument, nearby Utah State Parks, the Ashley National Forest, Flaming Gorge National Recreational Area and Bureau of Land Management sites provide additional recreational opportunities in the area.

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.
This is a pretty open campground located right on the green river. There is a boat dock and a beachy area. All kinds of wildlife can be seen here; big horn sheep, cranes, elk, deer. You can also fish for various types of fish; catfish, carp, and pike. Very pretty area located down in the bottom of a canyon.
This campsite is in the middle of the Dinosaur National Monument on the green river. It is a small campground with a group site and some individual picnic / camp sites. There is a boat launch and this is commonly where the rafters either enter or exit a raft trip. The sites are small and the bathroom facilities are kept pretty clean. There are a several good hiking trails in the area including some with petroglyphs along the way. Lots of wildflowers and wildlife. The newly remodeled Dinosaur query is worth going through and is only about two miles away. The only problem I had with this site is making & paying for the reservations was a little difficult. Also there is a fee to get into the monument.
