Cedar Flats to Spotted Bear section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS II 9.5 miles
This stretch of Flathead River - South Fork is 9.5 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II section. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The beautiful Lewis Range scenery is an added bonus. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, suitable for an afternoon
trip. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Montana are often easier than in other states, so don't forget that rivers in this state are less demanding. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby.
The nature scenery of Montana and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. There are no other sections to paddle along Flathead River - South Fork than the Cedar Flats to Spotted Bear section. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people.
