Our perfect location in Almont, Colorado between Gunnison and Crested Butte allows us to offer one stop shopping for all of your recreational activities while you are on vacation! Please select one of the pull down menus or click on the links below for complete information. Three Rivers Outfitting is our recreational company and we offer rafting, fishing and kayaking right from the resort. For other activities, we partner with a number of area outfitters to book anything from horseback rides to zip line tours and 4 wheel drive tours.
The Gunnison Valley offers a wide variety of kayaking adventures from Class V creeking on the Upper East River and Oh-Be-Joyful Creek to Class II runs on the Gunnison and Taylor Rivers, and even some fun playboating at the Gunnison Whitewater Park. If rodeo moves are your style, try them out at the Gunnison Whitewater Park. For kayak lessons, we offer expert instruction with our experienced guides. Duckie trips (inflatable kayaks) are also a popular option. We offer guided trips as well as rentals if you want to go out on your own.
Guided Duckie Trips
A duckie is an inflatable kayak paddled by one or two people. It is a stable boat like a raft and does not require you to be enclosed or to have a roll, as a hard kayak does. All duckie trips include round trip transportation from the resort and all gear necessary: boat, paddle, helmet, wetsuit, splash clothes and booties. Taylor River trips include Splash Flash Photography services and 3% US Forest Service fees. All trips leave at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Plan to arrive at Three Rivers Resort 30 minutes prior to trip time. To expedite your check-in, be sure to complete the online waiver in advance. You will receive a link to this in your trip confirmation email.

Spend time with our expert instructors. They have logged many miles paddling our local rivers. If you are just learning, try a roll clinic on the pond to learn the basics of rolling and then progress to moving water on the Taylor or Gunnison River. If you are experienced, take a lesson to improve your paddling skills or to learn how to play at the whitewater park. Contact us for schedules and rates.
We have the following available for daily rentals: hard boat kayaks, inflatable duckies (kayaks), Stand Up Paddleboards and any river gear you may need. Please contact the Activities Desk for rates and availability. For larger gear, you must have a vehicle that will be able to transport gear safely and securely. Inflatables may be deflated and we can send a pump with you. Three Rivers offers private shuttles for an additional fee.
