Idaho whitewater, Grimes Creek

Boise county, 4 miles upstream of Highway 21 to MoReservoir Creek confluence section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-III     4 miles
 
I drive this stretch of creek all the time and the only time this creek is high enough to float is very early spring. I am unsure of the MoReservoir creek confluence. I am familiar with Mores creek confluance. Most of the summer you will be lucky to float a stick down this stretch. Says Mike

The average Idaho whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so if you're not from around here
    don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. The beautiful scenery of Boise County and the playfulness of the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have
to drive a bit to get to one, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The 4 miles upstream of Highway 21 to MoReservoir Creek confluence section of Grimes Creek is 4 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-III section of whitewater. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Boise City-Nampa, please print out a  
copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. This stretch is mid length, good for a one day paddling trip. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling places.

Briefly about the general area:
If you're looking for a beach close to Grimes Creek, we recommend Sandy Point Beach, and Lucky Peak State Park is a good place to take a look at. The slopes of Bogus Basin are so inviting nobody can resist, and you're sure to bump into some great folks from Placerville here.
