Camping facilities are provided at the San Rafael Bridge Recreation Site adjacent to the San Rafael River. The lofty escarpment to the north and large buttes to the east and west border the recreation site. No reservations are taken for these campgrounds.

The swinging bridge located to the West was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1938, and was the only bridge over the river until the early 1990s. Though you can no longer drive on it, it is perfectly safe to walk on. Visit BLM web page or call the Price BLM office at (435) 636-3600 for more information.
