The nature scenery of Colorado and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water have people coming here. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Colorado is often tougher than elsewhere, so keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving.
    You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of spots for that. If you're coming from Edwards it's not a long drive at all to
the put-in location. A good workout and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The Park Range scenery is wonderful.

Briefly about the general area:
Have a glorious hiking adventure along the Rock Creek Trail, and the fine folks of Bond like to hang out
 
close by. But wait, there's more fun things to do in the Park Range. Take a hike on the Sheep Drive Trail It's always good to pop by Dry Gulch Spring. This river is so wonderful.
