Colorado River, Nevada

#12 of 63 in Nature in Nevada
Water Body · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Take in one of America's most famous and fiercest rivers, , and enjoy the wealth of recreation along its banks or rapids. The number of high-quality white-water rafting trips available has earned the 2,330 km (1,450 m) river the nickname "granddaddy of white-water rafting." However, the faint of heart need not worry, as it's not all thrills and spills on this body of water. More relaxing pastimes, such as wildlife watching and relaxing river walks, also draw a big crowd. The river's dramatic scenery is just as breathtaking as the rapids, with its varied flora and striking canyons. If you're embarking on a rafting trip, take precautions to protect your camera from water damage or loss.

  • Great scenery!!! Cost is $12. They take you from the Riverside Casino to the dam back down the river past Harrahs back to the Riverside. Ride lasts almost an hour.  more »
  • We love going to the river. Please wear a life jacket no matter what age you are or how much of a good swimmer you are. The current is no joke. The water is clear and cold.  more »
  • It's the Colorado River. Amazing of course. A very important river supplying water to thousands and thousands of people in the southwest and other places.
  • Now this is a river. Big, beautiful, runs through diverse landscapes. This river makes me wet.
