  The put-in is not too far from Hood River, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. The wonderful Hood River County scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream have people coming here. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting
    and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. Lodging is available near the river, but you'd better reserve
in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This is a pretty decent length section, you can easily run it on an afternoon.
