Parkdale Rafting Trip Description
A Parkdale rafting trip is usually included with a full day Royal Gorge rafting trip or run separately as a half day rafting trip. This is the lower part of the Arkansas River and the weather and water are usually warmer here. The river is generally higher than the runs upstream due to several creeks adding water to the river.
The Parkdale rafting section parallels US Hwy 50 but because there are many class III & IV rapids, you don't notice the road very much. Other people in your group who chose not to go rafting can follow along and watch as you splash through rapids such as 3 rocks, Spike Buck, and Shark's Tooth. There are some mellow sections of river where you can swim along side the raft.
There are many rafting outfitters that offer Parkdale rafting trips. Several of these rafting outfitters are featured below. Please contact them to book your Parkdale rafting trip.
