Your rafting options close by are limited. However you can tube the Yampa River right in town, which is a lot of fun. For rafting you can go south to the Colorado River for the Pumphouse Run which is mostly a float, but a couple rapids to start. There is a small natural hot spring along the run, places to jump from rocks, and dinosaur tracks to see too. If you want more rapids then you could go to the Eagle River near Vail. It is possible the Blue River in Summit County could be running when you are here if early in June. Other than what is mentioned you will need to travel several hours for anything else.

Have a look at this website www.CROA.org

Gore Canyon slipped my mind! Right above the Pumphouse Run on the Colorado River is Gore Canyon - it is an Extreme Whitewater Run - if that is what you want, then there are a couple outfitters who run it.

Check out Bucking Rainbow. They guide the rivers 1FourFun mentioned and also the Elk, North Platte and Cross Mt section on the Yampa. Water levels are looking good.
