Utah whitewater, Salina Creek

Sevier county, Gooseberry Road to Salina section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-V+     19.5 miles
  This section of Salina Creek is 19.5 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-V+ section of whitewater. The put-in is not too far from Provo-Orem, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. If you'll
    be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time
outdoors will have you coming back for more. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The beautiful scenery of Sevier County and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The Gooseberry Road to Salina section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this is an area with not too many other spots for that. This section  
is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so why not pack your camp stove too.
