Four Corners camping and boating

I am an experienced boater meeting family in the four corners area third week of July. I am bringing a 16' oar rig and would like some advice on where to boat with never ever's and kids. Looking for scenery and some splashes, class 3 max. Day trips. Thanks for your help!

If you can get a permit & still have some water the San Juan from Bluff to Sand Island is nearby. The Colorado River "Moab Daily" is a fine choice with several put-in / take-out options, excellent views, a few fun rapids and good camping. I've heard the 15 miles from Glen Canyon dam to Lee's Ferry in Arizona is a wonderful float. The Green River Daily just north of Green River, Utah is a quiet place to camp and spin a few laps. The Rio Grande near Toas, NM could work too. Have Fun.

The Animas is a great river. I have taken a lot of kids and never-evers down the town run through Durango. Would be a fun time for all.

Getting a 16' oar rig down the Animas town run in late July will be a challenge. Hope for rain. If not, your looking at the big desert runs. You could probably run the San Juan below Navajo, but would likely piss off a bunch of flyfishermen.
