    of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you
coming back for more. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are not so many other good spots for that around here. There are many good hotels to choose from, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car.
