The interest in whitewater kayaking has grown immensely in recent years, and whitewater parks with both man-made and natural features have popped up all over the state. From Montrose to Gunnison, Buena Vista to Boulder, kayakers have traveled to test their skills on the challenging sections of river.

Recreationalists can also enjoy kayaking on the many reservoirs, lakes, and state park waterways that dot the state. The views from the five-square-mile Lake Dillon are truly unbeatable and the serenity of Denver’s Cherry Creek Reservoir offers the opportunity for relaxation and wildlife viewing close to home.
