Tubing, Kayaking, Rafting, and River boarding on the St. Vrain River
During May and June the water is typically pretty cold. When the water is over 200 cfs, it’s usually in peak snow melt time. That means, you guessed it, cold water. We rent wetsuits. The water usually starts warming up when the snowmelt is winding down.
Over 13 and good swimmers are okay. Younger kids are okay at medium and lower water levels. Good swimming ability and lifejackets and helmets are a must.
<200cfs = easy ; >200cfs = intermediate/advanced >300cfs = advanced
100-300cfs is a great level for tubing from Apple Valley Rd. to just after 2nd Avenue.
300-700 cfs: over 300cfs – We do not rents tubes when flows are over 300cfs.
When is it running?
*We do not offer a shuttle service.
The Saint Vrain may be closed to tubing during a flood. Please obey all closures, they are implemented for a good reason.
Rental reservations begin April 15 for the upcoming season.
