  If you're coming from Kingston it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in New York is often more difficult than elsewhere, so don't forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. This section has enough mileage for an overnight trip, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. 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. A good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. The Rock Hill
to Oakland Valley section of Neversink River is 13 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II-IV section. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. This is not the only paddling section in this river system, there are others too. The nature scenery of Orange/ Sullivan County and the water flowing gracefully down Neversink River will make you feel great.
