  The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Utah are often easier than in other states, so don't forget that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. This section of Virgin River in Washington County is 49 miles long and has been rated as a class I-V(V+) section by American Whitewater. The scenic beauty of Washington County and the cool fresh water have people coming here. There are campgrounds quite near the river
    where you can camp. A stretch of this length does require some preparations, so it looks like you will be camping out. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you won't find
a large number of other rivers. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Virgin to Littlefield section is one of them. There are many good hotels to choose from, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The put-in is not too far from St. George, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while  
are great reasons to come.
