State park: About 3 more weeks to float river in Craig
The season for taking a cool float down the Yampa River in the summer heat, a favorite pastime for many Craig and Moffat County residents, could soon come to a close. That’s according to Ron Dellacroce, manager of the Yampa River State Park. He estimated that a section of the river many local residents use — from Yampa Valley Golf Course to South Beach — should be floatable for three more weeks. It is one of the deepest river sections in the region, he said.
