Nice place to enjoy the river. There is parking available and can walk along the enjoying the beauty. Beyond the river, there is a skate park area where you can watch the skate boarders hone their skills.

I had my first adventure kayaking ever and the Animas River was the ideal place. I made it through the rapids without tipping over and had a blast. It's a very popular place for rafting too. We had a blast watching people jump the famous...More

We have gone to Durango many time,s just to enjoy the Animas River path. It winds through Durango, with plenty of opportunity to enjoy restaurants, city parks and conveniences such as restrooms and parking. Fun to watch the Kayaks and rafts going down the river....More

Well, yes, and a very pretty and scenic one at that. Surprisingly fast flowing and big, given how dry the area is. Get down to it, away from Durango if you can. Splash your toes. Go fishing. Take it in.

We have been camping in Durango, Colorado since 1995, in part, because of the Animas River. I love to sit next to the river, drink coffee and just watch the river. We also love all of the river activities such as rafting and fishing.

Great rafting. You can even catch the train and have it drop you off upriver if you sign up with the right outfit.

Our guide was Ellen - and she was outstanding. She taught us how to paddle and our group of nine actually got to help navigate through the Animas River. Ellen grew up in Durango and passed on a lot of local information to us. Overall...More

While I do not know for sure if there are vacation homes available I highly suspect it. The area is filled with a great deal of natural beauty that certainly would attract folks to offer a vacation home paradise.

When the river is really running, there is one rapid that is a class IV - V. We have rafted with children as young as six and my parents who are in their 70s. Never any problem and we have always had a fantastic time!
