Description
The state park was built around a tradition boat/raft launching spot on the Green River. It is a favorite spot to embark on river trips through Labyrinth and Stillwater canyons. (Note: Many raft trips have used Mineral Bottom as a takeout point. However, the Mineral Bottom Road has been washed out and is not usable.)

The annual Friendship Cruise begins here. The cruise takes place Memorial Day weekend. It follow the Green River down to the confluence, then travels up the Colorado River to Moab.

Green River Golf Course

The state park offers a 9-hole golf course with fairways lined by mature cottonwood trees and water hazards from the meandering Green River.

The park also has a very nice, modern campground with tent, RV and group sites.
