If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Colorado you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. If you're coming
    from Silverthorne it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. If you'll be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill
up quick. The natural beauty of Chaffee County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water attract people from near and far. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling rivers. The campgrounds here at Buffalo Joe's Whitewater are pretty good. Whitewater paddling here in the Sawatch Range is a great experience. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some  
time outdoors have a lot of people coming here.
