This section of Grand Lake Stream in Washington County is 3 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-III section of whitewater. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river
    for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. The beautiful scenery of Washington County and the playfulness of the water attract people from near and far. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an
area with plenty of spots for that. This section is quite short so no need to bring snacks. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Maine are easier than the national norm, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. The West Grand Lake to Big Lake section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive  
a short distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.

Briefly about the general area:
A short tour to Little Falls is always worthwhile, and Dawn Marie Beach is pretty close by if you're in a beach type of mood. A spree to Grand Lake Stream wouldn't be complete without taking a look at Big Falls. Enjoy a lazy day on the beach at Campbell Shore. The high level of rain makes Grand Lake Stream a reasonably wet location. For the duration of November this area sees the most rain, and the driest of the months is June. Through the months of summer here at Grand Lake Stream, high temperatures commonly reach the 70's; the night is a little cooler of course, ordinarily in the 50's.
