Dolores River Guide

In the absence of an official waterproof Dolores River Guide, the Dolores River Boating Advocates (DRBA) in partnership with RiverMaps LLC and the Tres Rios BLM have created this interim guide. DRBA began the process of creating a new river guide during the 2016 and 2017 river season when survey crews collected observations on camps and other features. RiverMaps LLC and DRBA’s goal is to produce an official waterproof guide for the entire Dolores and San Miguel Rivers by the end of 2019. Until that point, we hope that this guide will help you get down the river.

The minimum donation requested for each map you print is $13. Please honor our trust and river karma. Make a donation for every guide you print. It comes in a PDF format that will print to 8 1/2 by 11 paper. Funds from sales of this temporary guide will go towards producing the official Dolores and San Miguel River Guidebook. This item is not eligible for returns.

You will get an email from soon after you make your purchase with a link to download the pdf.  If you don’t see it, please look in your junk mail folder as some people have found the email there. If you have any issues, please email

Dolores River Interim Guide - Bradfield to Bedrock

This interim guide covers the 96 miles from Bradfield Recreation Area to Bedrock, including the location of over 130 potential camps identified over the years by the BLM river rangers. Because the Dolores River has not seen much use since 2011 many of these camps may be overgrown and difficult to easily identify. This interim guide includes observation made by DRBA and the BLM in 2016 and 2017 related to the camps that we could identify and survey. This guide also includes the location of know rapids, other river features, directions to put-ins, and BLM requirements.
