New York whitewater, Boquet River

Essex county, Boquet to Willsboro section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-V     22.7 miles
  This stretch of Boquet River in New York is 22.7 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-V section of whitewater. If you're coming from Plattsburgh it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. This stretch is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so why not pack your camp stove too. There arenít any hotels right nearby
    but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside New York you might find the rivers here a bit
more challenging, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. There are so many sections to paddle in this river system, the Boquet to Willsboro section is just one of many. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of people coming here. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large  
number of good rivers. The natural beauty of Essex County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream beats anything. When you're paddling down a Adirondack Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. The campgrounds here at Boquet River are pretty good.

Briefly about the general area:
Kingsland Bay State Park is both good and charming, and it's in the neighborhood of Boquet River; you're sure to bump into some friendly folks from Essex here. Be careful coming to the Adirondack Mountains, you might not ever wanna return home again.
