Splash through white water on the Green or Yampa river before camping under the stars during this four-day guided trip—meals and rafting equipment included.

The Destination
It's not hard to imagine the namesake creatures roaming the canyons of Dinosaur National Monument. At the confluence of the Green and Yampa rivers on the Utah-Colorado border, these sandstone cliffs rise above some of the best white-water rafting in Colorado, sheltering 700-year-old petroglyphs and wildlife like Big Horn sheep and mule deer. Gaze up in awe-inspiring Lodore Canyon; float down the free-flowing Yampa River, the last undammed tributary of the Colorado River System; and hike past Native American sites around the monument. This is canyon country of the West, and Dinosaur River Expeditions—a National Park Service-authorized concessioner and equal-opportunity employer—will guide you through the best of it.

The Digs
There's nothing like camping under the stars with the rushing river as your background music—choose routes on the Green River, from the Gates of Lodore, or the Yampa River, starting in Deer Lodge, Colorado; the take-out point for both is Split Mountain. Bring your own camping gear, like a sleeping bag or inflatable sleeping pad and a waterproof tent, or rent a sleeping kit from Dinosaur River Expeditions. Plus, your friendly guides aren't just navigators. They'll entertain you with fun games, impromptu skits, and thrilling tales—not to mention the tasty grub they'll whip up in their trusty Dutch ovens. Lasagna and peach cobbler, anyone?
