The Firehole Campground is located in the Ashley Forest along the banks of the Green River. The campground is located at 6,300ft elevation with 36 single campsites, 2 double sites for up to 16 people each, and a day use picnic area on the banks of the Green River above the dam. A group camping area with shelter is available for up to 10 people. The campground area offers a boat ramp, beach area, dump station, fish cleaning station, and restrooms with showers.

Motorized and non-motorized boating, waterskiing, and swimming are available at the lake along picnicing and scenic driving. Fishing is great in Flaming Gorge Reservoir for mackinaw (lake trout), Utah chub, rainbow trout, channel catfish, and smallmouth bass. The Green River below the dam is one of the best trout streams in the country, and is also popular among rafters and kayakers.
