CLASS I-III     7 miles
  The scenic beauty of Idaho and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. This section of Camas Creek in Idaho is 7 miles long and it is classified as a class I-III section by American Whitewater. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Twin Falls, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. On this section you do get some distance, you can easily run it on an afternoon. Since you're on this
    site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this area has a pretty small number of paddling rivers. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national
average, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Blaine Bridge to Moonstone Landing section is one of them. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.
