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


CLASS IV     3 miles
  The put-in location is a short drive from Centralia, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so better not forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. This section of Chehalis River - West Fork in Washington is 3 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater
    to be a class IV section. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The beautiful scenery of Lewis County and the water flowing gracefully
down Chehalis River - West Fork attract people from near and far. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. This is a somewhat short section so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. When you're paddling down a Olympic Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of  
good places for that around here. This is not the only paddling section in this river system, there are others too. Getting a good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people.

Briefly about the general area:
You'll meet a lot of people from Pe Ell here; a day at charming Westport Beach next to Chehalis River - West Fork is a splendid thing to do. Whohoo, so much amusing stuff in one place! The Olympic Mountains rules! A spree to Rainbow Falls State Park revitalizes the spirit, and time spent at Jones Beach is always great. If you come to this river you will have a good time for sure.
