Washington whitewater, Chiwawa River

Chelan county, Huckleberry Campground to Wenatchee River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS III     11 miles
  The nature scenery of Washington and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream have people coming here. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The Huckleberry Campground to Wenatchee River section is the only paddling section along Chiwawa River. This stretch of Chiwawa River in Chelan County is 11 miles long and has been rated as a class III section by American Whitewater. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking
    river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. This section has enough mileage for an
overnight trip, so go ahead and pack your camp stove. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. When you're paddling down a Northern Cascade Range river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too.
