If you're just loking for camping and getting the boat wet, I'd recommend the Upper Colorado unless you head out to the desert. Pumphouse is flowing at 800 cfs right now (twice what many folks consider the minimum raftable flow). Right down the road from you, the stretch just above Dotsero has about 1000 cfs, is more open and thus should have much more sunshine (i.e. warmth) than Pumphouse or Brown's, which you'll certainly appreciate this time of year.
If you just want to get the boat wet, Shoshone looked raftable last night and the reach from Grizzley Creek to Newcastle should have minimum spash potential for the sake of your lovely bowflower, though not nearly as much sunshine as above Dotsero. The hotspring just above Glenwood Spgs. will be nice on a brisk day.
I hope all's well with y'all,
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
