Ya'll are crazy.....Pueblo fo' sho'. Best playpark in the state, 30 min. from the Gorge (which has great play at almost all levels), 2 hrs to BV, 3 to CB, 2 to Clear Creek, 2.5 to the Fort, 4 to D-go. And I NEVER have to deal with I-70 or stacked eddies.... Dig it.
Forget about the ladies though....I got the ONLY female boater in town.
Seriously though.....prob. can't beat the Fort for everything you're looking for. G to G ratio, quality of such, Apres paddle, the Poudre. Although, if you're a serious park and play boater you might be disappointed with the drive to quality.
