Washington whitewater, Satsop River - Middle Fork

Mason Grays Harbor county, Access off Kelly Hall Road to Tornow Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II     17.2 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Washington is often tougher than elsewhere, so better not forget that the rivers in this state are less manageable. The natural beauty of Washington and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. There aren’t any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before
    you come because it is a very popular destination. There are plenty of other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. When you're paddling down a Olympic Mountains river like this one you always get great
scenery along the way too. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors have people coming from far and near. This section of Satsop River - Middle Fork is 17.2 miles long and is a class II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling spots. If you hurry you can run this  
section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so why not pack your camp stove too. If you're coming from Aberdeen it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that.

Briefly about the general area:
A wonderful location like Olympic National Forest near Satsop River - Middle Fork is too good to leave out, and during your trip here you'll meet some people from Matlock for sure. Be careful coming to the Olympic Mountains, you might not ever wanna go back home again. A visit to Satsop River - Middle Fork wouldn’t be complete without a tour to nearby Schafer State Park.
