Montana whitewater, Flathead River - South Fork

Flathead county, Mid Creek to Cedar Flats section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS IV(V+)     4 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Montana tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. The scenic beauty of Montana and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Flathead River - South Fork doesn't have a lot of paddling sections, the Mid Creek to Cedar Flats section
    is the only one. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near. This stretch of Flathead River - South
Fork in Flathead County is 4 miles long and it is classified as a class IV(V+) section by American Whitewater. When you're paddling down a Lewis Range river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. This is a pretty decent length section, you can easily run it on an afternoon. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
