Washington whitewater, Lewis River - East Fork

Clark county, Green Fork to Sunset Falls section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV-V     5.5 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Washington is often tougher than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that the rivers in this state are less manageable. If you're coming from Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The wild scenery of the Northern Cascade Range is great. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both,
    doesn't matter, this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. This is a pretty decent length section, suitable for an afternoon trip. The wonderful Washington scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water will
make you feel great. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. A good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. There are plenty of other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. This stretch of Lewis River - East Fork  
is 5.5 miles long and it is classified as a class IV-V section by American Whitewater.

Briefly about the general area:
A fine location like Rooster Rock State Park near Lewis River - East Fork is too wonderful to leave out, and don't leave Lewis River - East Fork without first paying a visit to Summit Spring. You definitely should have a thing about the Northern Cascade Range. A trip to Shepperds Dell State Park when you're here at Lewis River - East Fork is a good idea, and going for a hike along the Horseshoe Ridge Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this region.
