New York whitewater, Negro Brook

Lewis county, Boshart Road to East Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV-V+     1 miles
  The Boshart Road to East Road section of Negro Brook in Lewis County is 1 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class IV-V+ section. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Watertown-Fort Drum, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. This section is very short so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. The beautiful scenery of Lewis County and the playfulness
    of the water beats anything. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors have people coming from far and near. 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. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in New York tend to be more challenging than the national average, so keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good places.
