River Vacation

Planning 2 weeks of camping, boating, and fishing in late July.
Any recommendations?
Will go anywhere in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, or Colorado (home).
Driving a truck camper 4x4...hauling a 14' raft, a playboat, dog, wife and a 3 yr old.

Criteria:
-Spectacular scenery.
-Overnighters and/or day trips.
-Easy water (II-III) for the family rafting activities.
-Excellent fishing.

Thanks,
Scott

Check out a 4-day Gates of Lodore trip on the Green River through Dinosaur NM. Easy class III, very scenic and isolated. Adrift Adventures in Jensen, UT specializes in family-friendly trips.

Thanks guys.
Those are great trips, but we've done them.
I'm leaning towards something around Yellowstone.

You could try the Stillwater around Absorokee ,Montana(north of Yellowstone park). The Yellowstone in Gardiner/Yankee Jim Canyon. Bighorn river below Yellowtail Dam for fishing. Shoshone below Cody Wyo. And of course , the Snake around Jackson Hole.

Snake south of Jackson has great Class III play and some scenic family float options in Grand Teton NP. Lots of great fishing around the area (so I've heard). The Madison up in Montana also has great fishing (again, so I've heard) and the Yellowstone River through Gardiner, MT has a good Class III run and the put-in is just outside the Yellowstone boundary. Lots of camping options throughout the area. PM me if any additional questions.
