Green River State Park

We are travelling to Colorado from So California in August. Taking I-15 north to the 70 east. Anyone ever stay in a good Rv spot in either Richfield Utah or at Green River City? We will be in a 38 foot motorhome. The green river state park looked like it might be good as it is close to the river. Or should we stay at a KOA? Richfield is our first choice for a stop because it it closer, but I am willing to travel a little farther if Green River is worth it.

efstewart, I think that's going to be a personal call depending on what your needs are for amenities and the "location". Absent an opinion we would initially opt for the commercial campground for the short term and if the other facility met our expectation and needs we might move.

Green River (not city) has a small state park in which there are about 40 sites (no FHUs excepts for the two hosts) and is attached to a nine hole golf course. Yes, it is next to the river (no swimming) but there are no sites next to the river. There are plenty of trees, so satellite reception is spotty. Also, a 38' will find only a couple of spots available, and even then it won't be great.

I'd recommend you go to www.rvparkreviews.com, look up Green River and you will note they have several RV parks there. The one I recommend is right next to the state park (I can't remember the name, something like Shady Lake) and stay there (FHU).

As far as being "worth it", if it is an overnight you are looking for, Green River is fine. If more, go somewhere else. Drive just a few more miles (about 75-100 miles) and you will have your choice of several decent ones in Grand Junction, CO.

Green River

Richfield, Utah and Green River both have nice KOA Parks. Have used both.

On edit, Shady Acres was the place I was looking for. Everything else still applies.
