River Access at James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park

Rafters, kayakers, canoeists and tubers can launch a fast moving river trip at park ramps located at Corn Lake, Connected Lakes and Fruita.

This section of the Colorado River is considered whitewater with sections of Class II rapids. Always wear a lifejacket (PFD) and follow safety guidelines and equipment requirements.
