  The natural beauty of Boise County and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Idaho tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. If you're coming from Boise City-Nampa 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 wonít get lost. You can enjoy this stretch more if you take your time, so pack your camp stove. The campgrounds here at Mores Creek are pretty good. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots
of good rivers for that around here. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This stretch of Mores Creek is 13 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-III section of whitewater. This river system  
has a few good paddling stretches and the Big Gulch to Robie Creek section is one of them.
