Clear Creek is truly a one-stop-shop for all your Idaho Springs whitewater rafting adventure needs with trip options for most ages and all ability levels. Clear Creek whitewater rafting has Colorado’s steepest rafting runs, creating more rapids per mile than any other in the state and family friendly sections full of smiles and splash. This is the #1 rafting destination if you are looking to spend less time driving and more time having fun on the river.

The “Upper C” has fun and family-friendly float trips that take you away from the beaten path and deep into Colorado’s nature and beauty. From our Kremmling, Colorado location you are a short drive from Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, and Winter Park.

Rafting the Arkansas River in Colorado offers an exhilarating blend of stunning scenery and thrilling rapids, making it a top destination for adventure enthusiasts.
