“Beautiful River”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

My son and I rented bicycles and rode along the Animas River. It was beautiful and next time we go we will either Kayak or raft down the river. So beautiful.

“River Rafting”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This river would be a challenge to anyone who likes to do some white water rafting. This river was truly beautiful and fresh with all the rain coming down from the mountains. When in Durango this is a must activity for friends and family.

“ANIMAS RIVER”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We are staying in Durango Riverside Rv park, right along side the Animas river. It is a beautiful river, but so far no fish. Lots of posted signs, so great to look at.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Absolutely beautiful! We spent the day off roading in the mountains and started out at Animas Forks. Would recommend taking a picnic and spending the afternoon even if you're not looking for a full day adventure.

“Take the train, and see the river.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

If you ride the Durango and Silverton Narrow gauge railroad, you will wander along the beautiful Animas River. You will see some wildlife, and folks rafting in the river as well. If you have the time, do a zip line tour or a rating tour, and by all means just have fun !
