Good float?

I'm looking for a chill float to take kids on that is not too far from Denver.

In a raft, I assume?

Best, closest thing is probably the Upper Colorado below Pumphouse. The lower stretches of the Arkansas around and below Salida offer good options too. If you guys are going to be using duckies or a small raft you might look into the South Fork South Platte between Deckers and the confluence with the North Fork. I am not familiar with the South Platte around and through Denver, but I have heard there are a few options.

Hope that helps.

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.

Pumphouse to Radium or Rancho on the Colorado. Great family float. Have not checked flows lately, but I hear they are pretty low. Rancho Del Rio will shuttle.
