Colorado River rafting is one of the state’s best attractions as well as favorite past times for the locals. People from all over the country visit our beautiful state every year for Colorado white water rafting trips. June is in full swing now, and the late May snowstorms are over. Arapaho Basin and other ski resorts across the state have finally closed for the season, and now we wait for the multiple 80-degree days to finish melting the snow. As the Summer Solstice approaches us on June 21 along with the Super moon on June 22-23, the water levels of Colorado’s rivers have been approaching their peak, which means Colorado whitewater rafting is currently in full effect!
Here at the Colorado Adventure Center, guests can find their favorite river to go river rafting in Colorado. Offering three separate locations on five different rivers, Colorado Adventure Center can find a river that is best suited for you and your friends and family.

In the past week, the Arkansas River has risen from 1600 cfs (cubic feet per second) to over 2500, which brings splashes right over the front of every boat on an Arkansas River white water rafting trip. Being the country’s most popular river to go Colorado whitewater rafting, the Arkansas River had nearly 170,000 people going white water rafting in 2012. The Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area’s park manager, Rob White, said that the Arkansas River Basin’s snowpack is double what it was this time last year, which makes for great Colorado whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River. That means the 170k people that frequented the recreation area last year should go up significantly in 2013.
Also, the South Platte and Colorado River Basins hit 100% snowpack over the 2012-2013 winter/spring seasons. This fact means quite a bit for the agricultural and municipal communities, but especially for the recreational and commercial river communities. For Clear Creek and Colorado River rafting trips, having plenty of water consistently melting out of the mountains is always a good thing. It makes for better rafting trips, bigger splashes for the participants and an overall great trip to deliver from the guides’ point-of-view.
The Colorado Adventure Center has Colorado white water rafting trips for everyone in the family and for all skill levels. Try an adrenaline-packed trip on either of our advanced sections of Clear Creek at our Idaho Springs location or maybe a mellow float through Glenwood Canyon at the Glenwood Basecamp.
