Sunday in Deckers-July 30, 2023


Sunday in Deckers-July 30, 2023


Flows through Deckers this morning are holding at just under 233cfs. For July 30, this has certainly extended the tubing season. What better way to spend day, then floating the South Platte.  If you are planning on floating the river today, just be sure to be equipped with proper safety gear and remember to never float alone. High of 92 today, with the possibility of afternoon thunderstorms.  Please read the safety information below, as this should be your number one priority.  Also, please keep in mind the rules around parking, camping, and day-use areas as you enjoy your time on the South Platte. BRING CASH! You cannot use your debit/credit card to pay for day-use fees. Please be aware that you will have to pay for each vehicle that enters the day-use area parking lots. What this specifically means is that ALL vehicles that are utilizing the parking lot must pay the $10 day-use fee. There is NO FREE TEMPORARY PARKING at the day-use areas along the river. Season passes for access to the day-use areas are only $100. Thanks for continuing to support the website and our National Forests.
