Greendale Campground is located in the beautiful Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area on the Ashley National Forest. Flaming Gorge Reservoir is nearby, offering exciting recreational activities like boating, fishing and swimming. This is a small and quiet campground.

A forest of ponderosa pines towers over Greendale, offering partial shade. Beneath the trees, grasses and plentiful summer wildflowers cover the campground.

Trash collection is provided. Dump stations do have a fee and are located at Antelope Flat, Deer Run, Firefighters, and Lodgepole Campgrounds. Showers are located at Deer Run and Mustang Ridge for campers with proof of camping registration. Firewood is for sale at nearby Firefighters Campground. Don't Move Firewood: Help prevent the spread of tree-killing pests in our national forests by obtaining firewood near your destination and burning it on-site.
