Idaho whitewater, Owyhee River - North Fork

Owyhee county, Off Mud Flat Road to Three Forks section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV     18 miles
  The natural beauty of Idaho and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so you'd better keep in mind that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you won't find many other paddling rivers. This is not the only paddling
    section in this river system, there are others too. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. If you're coming from Ontario it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, please print
out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while will make you glad you came. This section of Owyhee River - North Fork in Owyhee County is 18 miles long and it is classified as a class III-IV section by American Whitewater. You might have  
to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.
