The nature scenery of Montgomery County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. This stretch of Potomac River is -blank- miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class I section. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. 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. The Lock 10 to Little Falls section is the only paddling section along Potomac River. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Maryland is
often easier than elsewhere, so don't forget that many runs in this state are very easy.
