Yo, I am looking to take my kids, 2 and 4 on their first rafting trip. What stretch would you recommend within a few hours drive of Denver that is below class III, has good campsites for little kids, and is preferably somewhat roadside?
I suggest Ruby/Horsethief. While not roadside and probably further than you'd like to drive it will be more enjoyable for the kids on a first overnight trip. Water and weather will be warmer for them in May.
