Green River State Park is an oasis on the bank of the Green River where tall cottonwood trees shade well-manicured lawns. The park is a favorite embarkation point for river trips through Labyrinth and Stillwater canyons and is a good base for seeing much of southeastern Utah. Within a two-hour drive are Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef national parks; Dead Horse Point and goblin Valley state parks; Lake Powell; the San Rafael Reef; and Horseshoe Canyon. The park is the beginning point for the annual 180-mile Friendship Cruise.<P>Green River State Park is just off Interstate 70 in Green River City. Facilities include a 42-unit campground, hot showers, modern rest rooms, group-use pavilion, amphitheater for interpretive programs and boat launching ramp. A new nine-hole golf course with its meandering fairways, lakes and traps is challenging and fun for all levels of golfers.
