Join us for dinner tonight!
An early evening float trip on one of the mildest sections of the Arkansas is a perfect way to end a summer day in the mountains! Your evening begins at Wilderness Aware’s riverside rafting office where you begin your float from our private launch area. Towering cottonwood trees line the quickly moving river as you pass through lovely ranch country at the base of the stunning Sawatch Mountain Range where 14,000 foot tall peaks create a perfect backdrop. Depending on flows, the 3.5 mile trip to the private beach at Fisherman’s Bridge takes 30 minutes to one hour. Float right up to the Riverside Bar & Grill and relish the beautiful landscape and a delicious dinner!
The trip price listed includes a $15/adult and $10/youth food and drink voucher which easily covers an entree and drink. Enjoy your choice of:
• Grilled Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos with cilantro cream sauce
• Grilled Carne Asada Burritos
• Chicken Chipotle Tacos
• Grilled Chicken Chipotle or Cheese Quesadillas
• Jalapeno Elk Bratwurst with kettle chips
Kids can also enjoy their choice from the kids menu.
Drinks include local handcrafted beers or root beer on tap, fresh homemade margaritas, the world famous “River Rummer”, fresh squeezed lemonade or natural sodas.
Feel free to take your time and enjoy your dinner – your vehicle awaits you next to the restaurant. Prior to your trip, you will drive your vehicle downstream to the restaurant and we will shuttle you back to the departure point (about 20 minutes round-trip).
Trip cost also includes free wetsuit bootie rental and rain poncho.
Wilderness Aware Rafting’s office is located on Hwy 285 & 24 about 3 miles south of Buena Vista, CO – just east of the Arkansas River bridge and the small community of Johnson Village.
