Best boating in Colorado in July will be the Arkansas.
100 miles of boating from North of Buena Vista to Cannon City.
Everything from Class II thru Class IV+. By July, peak flows will be over
and everything will be running at very sane levels.
Both Buena Vista and Salida are great towns with camping, lodging and boating companies.
Either would be good to meet other catboaters.
My favorite is BV, great selection of day runs from beginner to expert.
The Arkansas Valley is one of the prettiest places in Colorado with
snow capped 14,000 ft peaks, whitewater, biking, hiking and a few excellent brew pubs.
