​​​​​​Rafters on the Colorado RiverAll five park sections are located along the Colorado River and provide river access.

Rafters, kayakers, canoeists and tubers can launch a fast moving river trip at park ramps located at Corn LakeConnected Lakes and Fruita.

River trips from Corn Lake to Connected Lakes, or Connected Lakes to Fruita are about 10 miles each. Float times vary with changing conditions but average 3-4 hours. This section of the Colorado River is considered whitewater with sections of Class II rapids. Always wear a lifejacket (PFD) and follow boating safety guidelines and equipment requirements​.

If you are unfamiliar with whitewater consider taking a guided trip with a licensed outfitter or going with an experienced boater.

A park pass is required for all vehicles entering the park; including shuttle vehicles and those launching or loading boats. 

Please use caution and remember the following:

  • ​Know your ability
  • Know your limits
  • You are boating at your own risk
  • River conditions and ratings change with flow levels​
