  1. Default Whitewater rafting in the western US?

    On our roadtrip, we are interested in doing whitewater rafting somewhere in the western US. We are not 100% sure exactly where we want to do it, but we want to do a 1 day trip rather than a 3-4 day trip. All the sites we can find are trip companies that are trying to sell us trips, rather than information about where is the best place to raft. Any suggestions for places to raft, or sites to look at?

    Default Narrow it down a bit

    When you write "Western" - do you mean Montana, Wyoming, Colorado? Or do you mean Oregon, Washington, California? It's quite a big area to cover and narrowing down to a more specific will help with suggestions. I know you stated you're not 100% sure of where - but do you have an inkling of an idea of where you'd like to travel for this excursion? For instance, somewhere within x days drive from some other point?

  3. Default

    We'll be driving from Chicago to LA. So we are hoping to do it somewhere in Utah, northern Arizona, or western Colorado. But we are also open to other ideas if there is anything in Wyoming, eastern Idaho, or southern Montana.

    Default A few options to explore


    In Montana, far west-central Montana includes rafting near Kallispell and my own parents took a 1-day trip there some 20 years ago.

    In Wyoming, I believe there is a large-scale 1-day trip business on the Snake River near Jackson.

    In central Colorado, look at 1-day trips on the Arkansas River at Buena Vista or Canon City, CO.

    Just below I-70 in eastern UT, a segment of the Colorado River called Westwood Canyon gets lots of day-trippers (outfitters in Moab and/or Green River, UT?).
