  • Great place. Loved the dinosaur bones quarry. It was amazing. Also drove to Josie's cabin. Should only attempt with a 4x4. Narrow unpaved road, however the place was really good. A good place for bringing kids, even if they are not into dinosaurs. The Green River seems like a nice place, if you are into boating.
  • Echo Park Campground is a nice pretty secluded campground, great views of different formations. Road in is good, but rough and steep, it recommended no passenger vehicles, but saw several in the park, a good set of tires is probably best, trailers of longer lengths, definitely not a good idea as the switch backs are super sharp. saw a couple of the more all terrain type trailers, (9-12') those are manageable. can get a bit breezy, bugs weren't terrible, a few in the evening. fire rings, picnic tables on each, and sites were pretty flat and ranged from full sun sites to full tree canopy cover.
