Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of places for that. There are a few other sections in this
    river system that can be paddled as well. This is a very short stretch so better bring some good walking shoes. No shortage of good hotels, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The
average New Jersey whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be easier to run than those in other states, so keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners.
