Just the campground is closed. Your still ok to use the take out and just hike to the highway. Be aware of a pretty good strainer right at the top of blue chute. i actually have a video of it on my IG from a few days ago @vandown_bytheriver

Also known as Boulder Creek Rapid, Blue Chute refers to the entrance move. You want to be right there anyways, and you probably can sneak a boat past that strainer, but it is also pretty dang hazardous.

Columbine Landing opens later in the month, one of the last two weekends in May usually.

Also in a 14 ft boat, the lowest I like to run is about 500, but more like 700 is preferable. Lots of tight moves at 400 cfs, and if you are thinking about a frame you should think twice, it is tight and quick!
