Washington whitewater, Stequaleho River

Jefferson county, C-1066 Road to Clearwater Campground section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III(V+)     4 miles
  The natural beauty of Jefferson County and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The average Washington whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby.
    Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good spots. The C-1066 Road to Clearwater Campground section of Stequaleho River in Washington is 4 miles long and has been rated as

If you're coming from Port Angeles it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, as you can see on the road map further down. The Olympic Mountains scenery is wonderful.
