Clear Creek is one of the best tubing areas close to Denver. On a hot, sunny day, it can’t be beat. Clear Creek Whitewater Park offers exciting ripples, waves and drops. Anybody looking for a lazier float can avoid a lot of the white-water by choosing the right stretch of creek.
This one is also not too long, so you’ll be fine with one car and hiking back at the end of the float to do it again. If you have two cars though, you can set up for a longer tube by parking one car at opposite end of 10th Street and shuttling.
When you get to the park, just start walking up the sidewalk as far as you’d like to go. The path enters the forest, stay on the left path close to the river which comes to an end in about 5-10 minutes. Drop in here.
Located next to Clear Creek is a baseball diamond, a sand volleyball court, a large grassy park and an outdoor calisthenics gym. Shops and restaurants in downtown are only a short walk away. Clear Creek RV Park sits adjacent to the creek and offers 22 full hook-up and 3 tent sites.
