The Salida Whitewater Park features several manmade features on the Arkansas River, used for kayaking, rafting, and tubing. It’s located in the state’s largest historic district, downtown Salida. There are four whitewater wave features, and usually, two big holes, which vary in size depending on water level and season
Being at over 7,000 feet means the water is always cold, so wear proper gear and please be cautious. Some inter tubing is done when the water level is appropriate. The oldest whitewater festival in America, FibArk, is also held here every June.
