    to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature are great
attractions for lots of people. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too. The campgrounds here at Snake River are pretty good. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so why not pack your camping stuff too. There are plenty of hotels here if you want to spend a night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or  
kayaking this is an area with not too many other places for that.
