  If you're coming from Longview-Kelso it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The beautiful scenery of Washington and the water flowing gracefully down Germany Creek are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this area has a large number of paddling spots.
    Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors will have you coming back for more. This is a pretty short section so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. The Road 1300 to
end of county road stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system. The Road 1300 to end of county road stretch of Germany Creek is 3.3 miles long and is a class III+ section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. The river winds through the Olympic Mountains  
and you get great scenery. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Washington is often more difficult than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere.

Briefly about the general area:
The fine people of Ryderwood like to hang out close by, and if you want to hit the beach, Jones Beach is nearby. These mountains rock, just check out all the amusing stuff to do in the Olympic Mountains. You must without doubt take a look at striking Dibblees Beach if you're here at Germany Creek. Germany Creek is a wet location that gets a great deal of rainfall.
