Rafting Westwater Canyon on Colorado River in Utah

Westwater Canyon in Utah is a fun section of the Colorado River. Water conditions vary from mellow flat to significant white water rapids. Along the way, tall sheer cliff walls loom over the river, showing nature’s art through geology. Campsites are in pleasant, accessible locations and can be reserved ahead of time to eliminate wandering the river for an open spot. And there are even some historical sites along the way that are only readily accessed from the river. Lots to see and do on this fun overnight rafting trip.
