It seems like people are reviewing three different things here. There's the Green River Overlook, which is quick-stop overlook inside the Canyonlands park. It's beautiful, I give it 5 stars. Then there's the River itself, which people raft down, etc. I can't review that. Then there's the city, Green River, UT, which has its little museums that I've never been... More

We stopped here off the Amtrak train for a night with the intention of seeing goblin valley state park.... However there is no car rental places within an hour of the town. No taxi service either. No shops, only one bar and a general/grocery store and some truck stops, everything else looks like it closed a long time ago. The... More

We stopped for gas in Green River and were amazed to find the town overflowing with melon. Stopping to buy some we chatted to the friendly vendor who pointed us to the museum. At the museum we met another very friendly lady who gave us directions to the best milkshake in town (the chow hound) and a hidden canyon. It's... More

We spent the day in and around Green River and if it weren't for the John Powell Museum and Crystal Geyser I'd have said it was a total loss. The gas station and restaurant had poor service from unenthusiastic people and I will just fill up in Crescent Jct next time I try to explore the area and pack a... More

I recently took a six day canoe trip down the Green River in the Canyonlands. The trip was wonderful - incredible scenery, petrogylphs and Anasazi ruins. Definitely a trip to remember. We rented two canoes and one kayak for five of us through Tex's Riverways in Moab. Mike our guy at Tex's was very professional and friendly and seemed to... More

... Or so we read, but we went there outta melon harvesting season! Prefer Moab for the nightlife and its local attractions but Green River is ideal for Sego (rock art and the grave yard - there's a story to be told there!!), Goblin Valley (Galaxy Quest and a forgettable 2011 sci-fi filmset!), Horseshoe Canyon Unit (500St.S then Country Rd)....

We camped just shy of the Canyonlands entrance, by Dead Horse Point State Park. This itself was extremely impressive and had some beautiful hikes around the perimeter. From here, we were easily able to make the trip into Canyonlands in a day. In all honesty, we loved the park and the views. I think it was definitly more impressive than... More

On the advise of another Trip Advisor contributor, my husband and I had a great adventure doing a river float on the Green River in early August. On her recomendation, we rented a 4 person raft for the 2 of us on a Saturday. This cost $59.00 for the day and included lifejackets, 3 paddles and a bail bucket. The... More
