River Proof

Maricopa county, Arizona whitewater outfitter

Day Trips

The put-in location is a short drive from Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale. The beautiful scenery of Maricopa County and the cool fresh water make the trip here worthwhile. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this area has a pretty small number of paddling places. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. The average Arizona whitewater
    rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. There are many good hotels to choose from,
but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car.
