Washington whitewater, Entiat River

Chelan county, FR 5605 to Tommy Creek trailhead section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV(V+)     2.5 miles
  The natural beauty of Chelan County and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Washington are often more challenging than in other states, so you'd better keep in mind that many runs in this state are not easy. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations
    you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds
nearby. This stretch is short so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. The FR 5605 to Tommy Creek trailhead section is one of many paddling sections in this river system. The FR 5605 to Tommy Creek trailhead section of Entiat River in Chelan County is 2.5 miles long and has been rated  
as a class III-IV(V+) section by American Whitewater. The put-in location is a short drive from Wenatchee, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. The Northern Cascade Range scenery is wonderful.

Briefly about the general area:
A good place like Lake Wenatchee State Park next to Entiat River is too good to leave out, and a delightful place close by is Box Canyon. This place, the Northern Cascade Range, has so much outdoors fun stuff. Have a great hiking adventure along the Duncan Hill Trail, and Halfway Spring is a great local attraction.
