New York whitewater, Bowery Brook

Greene county, Downstream from Bogardus Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-V     2 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in New York are harder than the national norm, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. The natural beauty of New York and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. 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. Whitewater paddling here in the Catskill Mountains is a great experience. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large
number of good places. The Downstream from Bogardus Road section of Bowery Brook in Greene County is 2 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III-V section. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. This section is quite short so no need to bring snacks. There are no other stretches to paddle along Bowery Brook than the Downstream from Bogardus Road stretch. If you're coming from  
Kingston it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature will make you glad you came.
