Idaho whitewater, Henrys Fork

Fremont county, Box Canyon to Last Chance section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     4 miles
Box Canyon can be floated by most anyone in a canoe, raft, drift boat, kayak or pontoon boat 8'+. There are enough rocks and shoreline sweepers to keep you on your toes. It's mainly floated by anglers or pleasure floaters and is often done several times a day due to it's nice short length of 4 miles. It's not real wilderness but the wilds are closeby and it's got a nice feel. Says Larry Tullis

If you're coming from Rexburg 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. The beautiful scenery of Idaho and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream
will make you feel great. A good workout and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good spots. No need to look hard for hotels, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Idaho is often more difficult than elsewhere, so better not forget that rivers  
here are less forgiving. This river system is full of great paddling sections, the Box Canyon to Last Chance section is just one of them. The Box Canyon to Last Chance stretch of Henrys Fork in Fremont County is 4 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II section. On this section you do get some distance, suitable for an afternoon trip. The campgrounds here at Henrys Fork are pretty good.
