Camping

Horseshoe and Green River

Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge maintains two primitive campgrounds, Crook and Swinging Bridge. Both campgrounds are just a short distance from locations which offer hiking, hunting, fishing, and wildlife observation. Camping is free and space is limited. 

Crook campground is located along the southeast end of the Wildlife Drive and includes pit toilets, fire rings, boat ramp, and shade trees. 

The Swinging Bridge campground lies directly along the Green River at the west end of the Wildlife Drive. Amenities include fire rings, pit toilets, boat ramp, and a livestock corral. 

Horses are not permitted in campgrounds overnight. Horses may be kept in the Swinging Bridge corrals if they are not in use by local ranchers. 

Camping inside the Refuge is allowed only at designated sites within these two campgrounds. Camping is limited to 14 days within a 28-day period. 

To protect the solitude of the Refuge, the use of generators is allowed between the hours of 7am to 10pm. 

Campfires should never be left unattended and must be completely extinguished prior to your departure. Please bring your own firewood. Firewood collection within the Refuge is prohibited. 

Trash dumpsters are not provided. Campers must take their trash with them when leaving the Refuge. 

Pets must be confined or leashed at all times (except hunting dogs when participating in a legal hunt).
