Washington whitewater, Chehalis River - East Fork

Lewis county, mile 3 to Chehalis River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III     3 miles
  The mile 3 to Chehalis River section of Chehalis River - East Fork is 3 miles long and it is classified as a class III section by American Whitewater. The wonderful Lewis County scenery and the playfulness of the water beats anything. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. If you're coming from Centralia 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. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. There are plenty of other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well.
Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good places. This section is quite short so better bring some good walking shoes. Whitewater paddling here in the Olympic Mountains is a great experience. The average Washington whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the  
sections here are not safe for beginners. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of people coming here.

Briefly about the general area:
During your stay at Chehalis River - East Fork do have a look at nearby Westport Beach; if you're stopping by from Pe Ell, you won't be the only one. Now, you may think that's plenty but there's even more cool things to do here in the Olympic Mountains. A day at Jones Beach in the vicinity of Chehalis River - East Fork is time well spent, and Rainbow Falls State Park is a good place to stop at. At this river you will never have a bad time.
