River Description

"The Elkader Whitewater Park (designed by of Glenwood Springs, CO) was completed in the summer of 2014, including extensive re-development of the riverfront park and access area.  There still remains some riverbank work on the far side (river left) expected to be finished in the fall of 2014.  The park consists of two features separated by a boulder island.  The main feature (aka The Gobbler on river right) is a 22’ wide wave, designed to provide low-water surfs and spins down to 300 cfs, while flows of 1700 to 3100 provide more advanced freestyle moves including blunts, loops and cartwheels.   The river left feature is designed for fish and canoe passage but has proven to be a good looping spot above 1200 cfs.   The main boulder island becomes submerged at flows between 3700 and 5000 cfs, creating catch on the fly waves for experienced boaters.  Above 5000 cfs, expect the features to be mostly washed out, providing little or no play opportunity.  Check out or find it on Facebook under Elkader Whitewater Project for current information and pictures."
