Utah whitewater, Provo River

Utah county, Soapstone to Deer Creek Reservoir section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-IV     25 miles
Great ride from above Woodland to the 1000 E. bridge (which is a good scare during high water, 1500 cfs). After the bridge the log jams, second diversion dam and constant river splits can be fun in the right craft (13 ft raft, not recommended). Great rush! Says The Heathen Monsters (see picture)

Yeah...this river especially the lower part...really rocks. Says Brad

If you're coming from Provo-Orem it's not a long drive at all
    to the starting location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Utah tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so if you're not from around here
don't forget that the rivers in this state are less demanding. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. The scenic beauty of Utah and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. This stretch has enough mileage for an overnight trip, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag. 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. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way there are lots of good spots for that around here. Whitewater paddling here in the Wasatch Range is a great experience. There's camping available near Provo River. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. The Soapstone to Deer Creek Reservoir section of Provo River is 25 miles long and is a class I-IV section of whitewater according to American Whitewater.
