If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so better not forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. The Wynoochee Reservoir to Save Creek section of Wynoochee River is 11.1 miles long and has been rated as a class II-III(V) section by American Whitewater. The beautiful scenery of Grays Harbor County and the beautiful way the water current
moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good places. This section is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. There aren’t 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. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp.
