Echo Park Campground, Dinosaur, Colorado

Based on the name, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that this area is filled with dinosaur fossils. The park’s topography, wild landscapes,  paleontology, geology, and history make it a unique resource for science and recreation. Campers can enjoy the natural landscape while learning about the archaeological record of this Colorado destination.

Set at the base of towering cliffs, Echo Park Campground will give you a camping adventure like no other in Dinosaur National Monument. On the canyon walls, you will see Fremont petroglyphs, and roaming around, you’ll encounter mule deer and bighorn sheep. For hikers, the trails will lead you to the Green and Yampa Rivers.
