Cache county, Ricks Springs to Preston Valley Campgroumd section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-V     9.5 miles

The starting location is a reasonable drive from Logan, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. This stretch is mid length, it's good length for a morning trip. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay
    the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. A good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of people coming here. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state
is often easier than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. Whitewater paddling here in the Wasatch Range is a great experience. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with not too many other places for that.
