Swasey’s Beach

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.

Swaseys BeachAccess to Swasey’s Beach and campground begins from the Green River Visitor Center in downtown Green River. You then progress east along Main Street to the intersection with Hastings Road. Turn left (north) and follow the relatively flat road for 6.3 miles to the intersection with a dirt road just before a ranch entrance. Turn right onto this road and follow it for 3.8 miles to Swasey Beach and the river rapid of the same name just upstream.  No reservations are taken for this campground.

    Do not turn off the road at the 6.3 mile mark. It is a dry river bed. Stay on the road for a total of 8 miles or so and it will take you directly to Swasey’s Beach.
