Echo Canyon River Expeditions

How we're addressing COVID-19

Here at Echo Canyon River Expeditions, our primary focus has always been and continues to be the safety and health or our guests and staff. We are closely monitoring the updates and guidelines set forth by county and state agencies with regard to COVID-19. We are following all necessary precautions and guidance as advised by our county and state agencies to that end.

We are open for Rafting Tours at this time. Our 8 Mile Bar & Grill restaurant is open for the season and hours of operation can be found here. Our Royal Gorge Cabins lodging options with luxury cabin rentals, glamping tents, and tent sites are currently open.

What you can expect from our Staff

  • Echo staff are screened for COVID-19 symptoms and are temperature checked at the start of each work day.
  • Echo staff members will wear face coverings. The only exception is for our Raft Guides who are permitted to remove their face coverings while guiding rafts.
  • Food service staff will wear face coverings and take other precautions as required by state and county health departments.
  • Robust cleaning routines have been implemented for rafting gear, rental gear, paddles, shuttle vehicles, and surfaces guests come in contact with over the course of the rafting experience.

What we expect from our Guests

  • Every guest is required to arrive with a face covering. You will need this while on Echo Canyon property and for the shuttle rides to and from the river. If you arrive without a face covering you will have the opportunity to purchase one from our retail store if they are in stock.
  • Rafting guests are required to have online release forms completed in advance of arrival. This will speed up your check-in.
  • Arrive in river-appropriate attire. While not required, this will reduce the number of guests in our changing rooms and bathrooms if you arrive in clothing ideal for rafting.
  • Be prepared to rent wetsuit gear. Renting wetsuits, splash jackets, and river shoes is not required, but please be aware if air and/or water temperatures are chilly we may recommend rental of gear so you stay warm and comfortable. All of our rental gear is cleaned and sanitized after each use.

Yes. All guests are required to wear face coverings for check-in and while on Echo Canyon property. Face coverings are also required for the shuttle ride to and from the river. However, while on the raft guests are NOT required to wear face coverings. These rules are all required by order of the Fremont County Health Department.

No. Guests are not required to wear face coverings while rafting. You are welcome to wear a covering while rafting if you prefer to do so, but we encourage you to consider a synthetic neck gaiter sun buff since they are much more comfortable once they get wet.

All Echo Canyon staff will wear face coverings. However, Raft Guides are allowed to remove their face coverings while guiding rafts.

At this time we do not have face coverings available for sale in our retail store. However, we do have face coverings on order for resale later this summer.

All full day raft trips will include our gourmet style boxed lunch. A vegetarian option is available if requested. In the past we have offered a steak lunch on full days, however our county health department has tightened some restrictions making it impractical for us to cook and enjoy steaks riverside.
