  The wonderful -blank- County scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Washington are often tougher than in other states, so don't forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. This stretch of Big Sheep Creek in Washington is 3 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II(III) section of whitewater. This is a somewhat
    short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. The starting point is not too far from Spokane. Getting some
good exercise and just being out on the river for a while have people coming from far and near. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Big Sheep Creek doesn't have a lot of paddling stretches, the Sheep Creek Road mile 7.5 to Sheep Creek Camp Ground stretch is the only one. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way  
in this general area you won't find many other paddling spots.
