Washington whitewater, Humptulips River - West Fork

Grays Harbor county, FR 2204 bridge to FR 2203 access section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS IV+     3.5 miles
  The beautiful scenery of Washington and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream beats anything. The put-in is not too far from Aberdeen, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this area has a large number of paddling places. This is not the only paddling section in
    this river system, there are others too. The FR 2204 bridge to FR 2203 access section of Humptulips River - West Fork in Washington is 3.5 miles long and has been rated as a class IV+ section by American Whitewater. This
is a somewhat short section so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. The average Washington whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're  
all set. Whitewater paddling here in the Olympic Mountains is a great experience. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here.
