Raft Colorado’s Arkansas River
The traditional kick-off weekend for whitewater rafting in Colorado has always been Memorial Weekend and this year is no different. The Arkansas River is on the rise due to warm temperatures in the high country and now is a great time to raft the Royal Gorge and the Numbers sections of the Arkansas River prior to high water closures. Family-friendly raft trips through the Browns Canyon and the Bighorn Sheep Canyon are also running daily now through Labor Day. Call 800-723-8987 or book online today.
