Green River/Warren Bridge River Access Area

The Green  River/Warren Bridge River Access Area provides an opportunity to enjoy the Green River and related recreation activities. The high elevation and rolling prairie environment provides many recreation opportunities amid stunning vistas of the Wind River Mountains.

A network of graveled roads connects to 12 separate riverside camp areas scattered along nine miles of the Green River. Most vehicles and medium sided RV’s can safely access these riverside camp areas. RVs and groups with numerous vehicles should carefully select the appropriate camp areas. Please avoid vehicle congestion at the smaller sites to ensure river access for day users and boaters. There are plenty of access sites to consider, simply spend a little time searching for the proper site.

Activities Include: Fishing, float boating, camping, hunting, swimming, picnicking, hiking and wildlife viewing.

River floating conditions are typical for high elevation rivers in open country with low gradient and few river obstructions. Except during high water conditions (class I-II), this river segment is suitable for boaters with beginner skills if led by boaters with intermediate boating skills. High water occurs during early summer. This stretch of the Green River is ideal for small watercraft (motorized watercraft not recommended). A few boulder strewn segments provide for exciting fast water runs suitable for open canoes, rafts, drift boats and kayaks. The river remains floatable through late summer, but as water is diverted for agriculture use and upstream flows decrease, shallow conditions prevail. During low water levels, boaters can expect to wet their feet while negotiating exposed gravel bars. Boaters should always be aware of river conditions and certain of their boating skills.

Facilities: Designated campsites with tables, fire rings; vault toilets and boat ramps.

Boat Ramps are provided at river access sites 1, 2, 4, and 12. Boat ramps are well suited for standard trucks and cars with trailers. Four-wheel drive may be needed at times. Parking space may be limited.

Things to Note:

  • Non-fee area
  • No potable water
  • No trash collection - pack it in & pack it out
  • Stay limit 14 days
  • Use permits required for commercial & group activities
  • Steep grades into some sites
  • Biting insects in warm months
  • Bear country

    CCC Ponds.

    The original CCC Ponds were developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during The Great Depression in an effort by Franklin D. Roosevelt to create jobs in the 1930s. The work consisted of reforestation, road and park construction, flood control and beautification projects. The CCC Ponds are an important historical feature to the Pinedale Area. These Ponds were re-constructed during the 1990’s and given specific themes to provide for various wildlife species: the Fish Pond, Duck Pond, Beaver Pond, and Frog Pond. A walking path was added to enable public access, as well as the installation of benches, interpretive signs and a parking lot. Over the years the area has seen increasing recreational use from Wyoming natives and visitors alike in the form of fishing and non-motorized activities such as walking and bird watching. Attached to the CCC Ponds parking area is a paved bike path called the Pinedale Pathway that loops from the parking lot back down into town for a round trip of about 6 miles. In the winter 3.5 miles of the CCC Pond area and part of the Pinedale Pathway are groomed for cross- country skiing opportunities.

    Uses Include: Fishing, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, and cross-country skiing

    Facilities: Vault toilet, interpretive signs, benches, warming hut, and groomed ski trails

    Things to Note:

    • Non-motorized area
