Buena Vista Whitewater Park
This park has 5 or so holes/waves. Found at the end of Main street in Buena Vista, CO. There are 2 main locations. The upper starts at the soccer field area adjacent to the Whipple Bridge which crosses the river. That is the Uptown Wave. The second access area is to the south and is accessable in the South Main Neighborhood. Both are public put ins and take outs. The park is fun at all levels. Anything 250 cfs plus makes it worth a trip to play in the park.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Arkansas River are between a bare minimum of 200cfs and a high of 5,000cfs.
