Washington whitewater, Spokane River

Spokane county, Harvard Park to Mirabeau Park section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     5.5 miles
  This section of Spokane River in Spokane County is 5.5 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II section. The average Washington whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so don't forget that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. The nature scenery of Spokane County and the water flowing gracefully down Spokane River make the trip here worthwhile. This stretch is
    mid length, good for a one day paddling trip. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good places for that around here. No need to look hard for hotels, but you'd better reserve
in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came. The campgrounds here at Spokane River are pretty good. The starting point is not too far from Spokane, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost.
