Skamania county, Mile 7 to Washougal River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS IV-V     7 miles
  The scenic beauty of Washington and the cool fresh water are reasons enough to come here and paddle.

The starting location is a reasonable drive from Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. This
    river system is full of great paddling sections, the Mile 7 to Washougal River section is just one of them. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find lots of paddling
rivers. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, it's good length for a morning trip. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. A good workout and just being out on the river for a while are great reasons to come. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere.  
The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. The wild scenery of the Northern Cascade Range is great.
