New Hampshire whitewater, Croyden Brook

Sullivan county, Newport section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     1.5 miles
  The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so don't forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. The beautiful scenery of Sullivan County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream attract people from near and far. The put-in location is a short drive from Lebanon, there's a road map further down the page with more info
    on that. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling spots. And of
course, there are campgrounds nearby. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This stretch of Croyden Brook is 1.5 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II-III section. A good workout and spending some quality time in nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. This is a somewhat short section so you'll  
have to walk back to the start over and over.

Briefly about the general area:
The snow is great at Mount Sunapee, and a day at State Park Beach is time well spent. Pillsbury State Park is a magnificent location to go if you're at Croyden Brook, and on a great day you can take a hike along the Monadnock Sunapee Trail. This river is so great. A trip to Mount Sunapee State Park invigorates the spirit, and a perfect beach close by is Dewey Beach. Croyden Brook is not far at all from Plainfield. A common amount of precipitation falls here at Croyden Brook. The month with most of the rain is August, and February on the other hand is the driest.
