North Carolina whitewater, Deep River

Randolph county, Route 2221 to Route 2615 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     5.4 miles
My wife and I decided to give this route a try, and we found that a couple of miles down river from the put-in site, there is a big dam that is at least 20 feet tall with no way around it.  We ended up walking 2 miles back to the car to come pick up our kayaks.  When we got home we looked at satellite pictures using google maps and it looks like there are 2 more dams before you would reach the take out site.  I do NOT recommend this route.
    Paddlers beware! Says Jeremy

The wonderful North Carolina scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The starting point is not too far from Greensboro-High
Point, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in North Carolina is often easier than elsewhere, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. The Route 2221 to Route 2615 stretch of Deep River in North Carolina is 5.4 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. For all you camping  
people 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, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this area has a large number of paddling places. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, you can easily run it on an afternoon. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too.
