Closer hotels are available at Concrete and Sedro Woolley. Gee Lake is also a cool lake to visit if you are up there. The south end of the road loop has great vistas, blue berries and black bears. Says Kim Ramsey

If you're coming from Mount Vernon-Anacortes it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. This section of Finney Creek in Skagit
    County is 4 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class V section of whitewater. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before
you come because it is a very popular destination. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way there are lots of good places for that around here. This is a pretty decent length section, it's good length for a morning trip. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so if you're not from around here don't forget that a large number  
of rivers in this state are not easy. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. When you're paddling down a Northern Cascade Range river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. The campgrounds here at Finney Creek are pretty good. The nature scenery of Skagit County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water attract people from near and far. This is one of a small number of paddling sections in this river system, there are a few others too.

Briefly about the general area:
Near Finney Creek you locate the Gee Point Trail which is a glorious hiking trail; if you're visiting from Concrete, you won't be the only one.
