Echo Park Campground

Nearly every campsite in the Echo Park Campground has sweeping views of Steamboat Rock and the cliffs around Echo Park.



Situated at the base of towering cliffs along the banks of the Green River, the Echo Park Campground provides a camping experience like no other in Dinosaur National Monument. Steamboat Rock dominates the view. Fremont petroglyphs are located on the canyon walls. Bighorn sheep and mule deer frequently roam through the campground. Unimproved hiking trails lead to the confluence of the Green and Yampa Rivers or to Mitten Park and dramatic views of the Mitten Park Fault.

The campground is located 38 miles north of the Canyon Visitor Center. High-clearance vehicles are strongly advised for the roads that access the campground. RVs and trailers are strongly discouraged due to sharp turns, steep grades, and rough roads.

Echo Park Campground is open year-round, but access is dependent on weather. The last 13 miles of dirt road from the Harpers Corner Road are impassable when wet. Winter access is often impossible due to snow on the Yampa Bench Road and the winter closure of the Harpers Corner Road.
