CLASS I(V)     1 miles
  If you're coming from Boston-Cambridge-Quincy 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. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in New Hampshire is often more difficult than elsewhere, so better not forget that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. This is an extremely short stretch so no need to bring snacks. This river system has a
    few good paddling stretches and the Jenness Beach section is one of them. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you won't find many other paddling places. The campgrounds
here at Atlantic Ocean are pretty good. Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature have people coming from far and near. The Jenness Beach section of Atlantic Ocean in -blank- County is 1 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class I(V) section. The nature scenery of New Hampshire and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water have people coming here.

Briefly about the general area:
If you're looking for a beach near Atlantic Ocean, we recommend Bass Beach; a trip here wouldn’t be complete without a spree to nearby Odiorne State Park. If you fancy a little side visit, try Rye Ledge; you can always enjoy a lazy day on the beach at Jenress Beach. This river is a great place to visit. A nice place like Vaughan Woods Memorial State Park right next door to Atlantic Ocean is too good to leave out; a tour to nearby Lockes Neck is very relaxing. You'll meet a lot of people from Rye here. At Atlantic Ocean during the long summer days highs are in the 80's. Summer overnight lows descend down to the 50's.
