Experience Desolation Canyon on the Green River in a raft, or challenge the rapids with an inflatable kayak! The kayaks are brought along on all trips!

Get in touch with nature with castle building on the large sandy beaches, water fights and swimming in the warm river water, and exploring on short hikes to ancient Native American ruins, abandoned homesteads, and scenic overlooks.
