Upper Colorado 2 day/1 night float advice

Looking to take the family on an overnight float on the upper Colorado in July and was looking for any advice on a good trip. I will have kids under age 10, so nothing extreme, just a nice float with some overnight camping and some potential for fishing around camp. I've put in at Rancho Del Rio in the past, which has been very convenient with the shuttle service. Is there a decent route from Rancho that can extend into a two day trip? Any advice is appreciated.

Better camping options are available from Pumphouse put in and taking out at Rancho. Good overnight with decent fishing.


Depending on flows Yarmony can be a big rapid but easy sneaks available just don't hit the hydraulic unless you are prepared for some excitement.

The water is probably going to big big this year still in July. Rancho to State Bridge, State Bridge to Two Bridges, and Two Bridges to Catamount all will be easier stretches than the Pumphouse to Rancho. Pumphouse to Rancho will definitely be more fun assuming no one falls out of the raft. Any place up there may be difficult to find camping spots especially on Friday or Saturday nights mid summer.

Thanks for the info. I think we'll stay south of Rancho with the kids this year and save the excitement until they're a little older.
