New Hampshire whitewater, Beebe River

Grafton county, Sandwich Notch to Campton Hollow section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-IV     5 miles
  The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Laconia, as you can see on the road map further down. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so better not forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. The wonderful New Hampshire scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water will make you feel great. Whitewater paddling here in
    the White Mountains is a great experience. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, suitable for an afternoon trip. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep
you coming back for more. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good places for that around here. The Sandwich Notch to Campton Hollow section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The Sandwich Notch to Campton Hollow  
stretch of Beebe River in Grafton County is 5 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-IV section of whitewater.

Briefly about the general area:
While you're here at Beebe River you can take a hike along the Cascade Trail; one of the best things about this location is its proximity to Endicott Park Beach. All year is a glorious time in the White Mountains if you love the outdoors. Going for a hike along the Ridgepole Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this region. Lots of folks from Center Sandwich come to Beebe River, and the skiing at Waterville Valley is magnificent.
