Wyoming whitewater, Clear Creek

Johnson county, Moiser Picnic to Hydro Station section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV(V)     3.2 miles
  The beautiful scenery of Wyoming and the cool fresh water make the trip here worthwhile. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so keep in mind that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Sheridan, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. This is a pretty short section so better
    bring some good walking shoes. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. This is not the only paddling section in this river system, there are others too. The nearby hotels are
a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This stretch of Clear Creek in Johnson County is 3.2 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class III-IV(V) section. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with not too many other places for that.
