The Noah's Ark Riverside Basecamp

Noah's Ark White Water Rafting Company in ColoradoFlanked by both the Arkansas River and six of Colorado's majestic 14,000-foot peaks, the Noah's Ark facility and 11-acre campground will not only captivate you with breathtaking views, but will also serve as an ideal location to begin your Colorado adventure. The investment we have made in our operation and facilities reflects our commitment to service and stands as a proof point of our longevity and stability in the industry. No other company can provide you with the resources available at the Noah's Ark basecamp.

Located just south of Buena Vista, Colorado.

Noah's Ark is easily accessible from Colorado Springs, Denver and Breckenridge. All of our Browns Canyon trips launch from the private put-in on our property, taking away the inconvenience of shuttling to a public put-in location. You will check-in at our log lodge, containing amenities such as a retail store, snack bar, equipment rental area, and a full service kitchen. Showers are also available for those who raft or camp with us. Delicious homemade meals served in our riverside pavilion and riverfront camping can be added to any trip.


Colorado Whitewater Rafting_0051 At Noah's Ark, the fun doesn't end once you've hit the shore. Our scenic riverfront campground has a myriad of activities to keep you and your group occupied during your stay, including fishing and volleyball. Our half-dome, weatherproof tents are perfect for housing 10-15 participants and can be divided to accommodate a co-ed group.

However, if you would prefer to bring your own tents, we have space for that as well. Each campsite has its own fire ring for late night group chats and warmth while spending an evening gazing at the Colorado night sky.

All of the necessary amenities, including showers and bathroom facilities, are close to the campsites for your convenience.

Food Service

Noah's Ark White Water Rafting Company in ColoradoNoah's Ark is one of few companies on the Arkansas river with a licensed food service program. Coupled with our riverside dining facilities, this distinguishes us from the rest.

Many groups will take advantage of this convenient option and add a meal before or after their trip. The meals are served in our covered pavilion, and we can accommodate groups of all sizes.

Sample menu items include cinnamon rolls, pancakes, and eggs for breakfast; fresh deli sandwiches, barbeque chicken, and tortilla wraps for lunch; and flank steak, fajitas, and spaghetti for dinner.
