Alaska whitewater, Tsina River

Valdez-Cordova Census Area county, Richardson Highway to above Stuart Creek section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS III+     1.5 miles
  The wonderful Alaska scenery and the water flowing gracefully down Tsina River will make you feel great. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Alaska are often tougher than in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. This stretch of Tsina River in Valdez-Cordova Census Area Borough is 1.5 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to
    be a class III+ section. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. This is a pretty short section so no need to bring snacks. The beautiful Chugach Mountains scenery is an added bonus. You might have
to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good spots. The Richardson Highway to above Stuart Creek section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being  
out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here.
