Wyoming whitewater, Boulder Creek

Sublette county, Boulder Lake section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

  The wonderful Wyoming scenery and the water flowing gracefully down Boulder Creek have people coming here. The put-in location is a short drive from Rock Springs, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. This is a somewhat short section so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. Some people prefer whitewater
    rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with not too many other rivers for that. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. Whitewater rafting and
kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so better not forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while are great attractions for lots of people. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
