Class I-II (III) Depending On Water Levels

Quick Details

Adult Ages 14+
Child Ages 4-13

The classic Cody, WY river adventure done right since 1978

The Red Rock Canyon of the Shohsone is the original river adventure of the Cody area. A short 5 minute drive from our office finds you at our private launch site, which is just downriver from the Historic DeMaris Hot Springs. This trip provides excellent wildlife viewing opportunities and is the perfect family whitewater adventure as you retrace the tracks of John Colter, Jeremiah Johnson, as well as the native communities that called this corridor home. Trip highlights include the timeless beauty of the red rock canyon, frequent rapids, and narrated history of early Cody pioneers and the plains Indian culture.

  • Class I-II (III): Depending on seasonal water levels rapid ratings range from class I – class III
  • Trip Includes: Transportation to and from the river, guided and fully outfitted river trip, U.S Coast Guard-approved life jackets, splash gear (tops and bottoms).

All passengers should be in good health and have the ability to move dynamically in a water environment. If you have concerns over whether or not you meet these criteria, please give us a call to discuss trip options.

Personal Responsibility

Wyoming River Trips guides are professional boatmen, and your safety is their highest priority. However, no outdoor activity is without some inherent risk. You must acknowledge and, in substantial measure, accept that risk. All adult participants, and parents or guardians of minor participants under the age of 18, must sign an Acknowledgment of Risk form required by our insurance company. Please allow sufficient time for this, and check in at our office when you arrive.

Please be sure to let us know about any medication you might need to have with you on the boat (e.g. inhalers, EpiPens, etc).
