Idaho whitewater, Pine Creek

Bonneville county, Headwaters to South Fork Snake River confluence section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     17.8 miles
  The wonderful Bonneville County scenery and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. If you're coming from Jackson it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. This section of Pine Creek in Idaho is 17.8 miles long and it is classified as a class II-III section by American Whitewater. This is one of a small number of paddling sections
    in this river system, there are a few others too. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good places for that around here. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and
kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so don't forget that many runs in this state are not easy. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so go ahead and pack your camp stove. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend  
some time outdoors have people coming from far and near.
