This rock formation is called Nefertiti do to the resemblance to the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti. Many one-day rafters put in at Nefertiti Rapids, travel down the Green River and then take out at Swasey’s Beach.
For a fun day in the sun, take a trip down the Green River!
Twelve miles north of Interstate 70, a developed BLM campground at Swasey boat ramp includes vault restrooms, trash disposal and fire rings. The white sand beach spans a long bend in the river and is shaded by cottonwood trees. Shallow water gives children plenty of opportunity to frolic in the river, and bighorn sheep frequent the water’s edge. Rapids upstream from the campground provide a kayaking playground. Designated as recreational access with no permits or fees for camping or boating, Swasey’s Beach provides barrier-free access for those with disabilities.
