Idaho whitewater, Coeur d'Alene River

Shoshone county, Tepee Creek to South Fork Coeur d'Alene River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     51.2 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Idaho tend to be more challenging than the national average, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. The Tepee Creek to South Fork Coeur d'Alene River section of Coeur d'Alene River is 51.2 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class I-III section. There are so many stretches to paddle in this river system, the Tepee Creek to South Fork Coeur d'Alene
    River stretch is just one of many. The nature scenery of Idaho and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The beautiful
Bitterroot Range scenery is an added bonus. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are not so many other good rivers for that around here. If you're coming from Coeur d'Alene it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost.  
A stretch this long is of course too much for a one day trip, so make sure you pack enough food along with your camping gear. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.

Briefly about the general area:
Hiking is a popular thing to do around Coeur d'Alene River; Fearn Creek Trail is a good local trail. Clark Gulch is near Coeur d'Alene River and is absolutely a great spot to take a look at, and a visit to Coeur d'Alene National Forest when you're here is never a bad idea.
