Utah whitewater, Spanish Fork

Utah county, Utah PandL Dam to Spanish Oaks section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     3.3 miles
  If you're coming from Provo-Orem it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The wonderful Utah County scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. The campgrounds here at Spanish Fork are pretty good. This section is quite short so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. The nearby
    hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The Utah PandL Dam to Spanish Oaks section of Spanish Fork in Utah is 3.3 miles long and is a class I-III section
of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The average Utah whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be easier to run than those in other states, so better not forget that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. The Utah PandL Dam to Spanish Oaks stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. The  
beauty of the Wasatch Range is a great plus for this river. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way in this general area you won't find many other paddling rivers.

Briefly about the general area:
Spanish Fork is right next door to Joes Canyon which is unquestionably worth stopping at; there are fine locations to look at along the Summit Trail. And if that's not enough there's heaps more enjoyable things to do in the Wasatch Range. You without doubt should stop by Uinta National Forest if you're here at Spanish Fork; if you're addicted to cool geologic characteristics try North Bench.
