BLM – Rio Grande Recreation Area

Rio Grande Recreation Area features a meandering river flowing south to the Colorado-New Mexico border. Excellent fishing opportunities exist in this scenic canyon, and the shallow gradient of the Rio Grande is ideal for those who prefer flatwater rafting. Though a roadside boat launch is available, visitors should be aware that a canyon hike is required to avoid challenging whitewater rapids where the river enters New Mexico.

Those looking for a great flatwater rafting experience will enjoy Rio Grande Recreation/Natural Area. Visitors can enjoy more challenging rapids near the Colorado-New Mexico border, or these can be bypassed by hiking through the canyon. For more information, please contact the San Luis Valley Field Office.
