  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many runs in this state are not easy. The wonderful Clallam County scenery and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. The put-in is not too far from Port Angeles, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. You can pitch a tent or park your RV
    at a nearby campground. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the FR 2931 100 spur access to Sol Duc River section is one of them. This stretch of Goodman Creek is 1.3 miles long and is rated by American
Whitewater as a class III+(V) section. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great attractions for lots of people. This is a very short section so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. Whitewater paddling here in the Olympic Mountains is a great experience. No shortage of good hotels, but you'd better reserve  
in advance because these hotels fill up quick.
