Alaska whitewater, Kisaralik River

Kisaralik Lake to confluence with Kuskokwim River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     90 miles
  The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Alaska are often tougher than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The nature scenery of Alaska and the cool fresh water attract people
    from near and far. A stretch this long is of course too much for a one day trip, perfect for a real wilderness adventure. The Kisaralik Lake to confluence with Kuskokwim River stretch of Kisaralik River in -blank- Borough
