River Description

river drops approx 30 ft over 8 ledges in 300 yds.

there are a couple of good slots in each ledge at 2000 cfs.

as the water rises so does the number of options. heaviest flow is river left.

can be run as low as 1000 cfs but expect a "bumpy run" or you can put in below the falls then paddle up to play the last ledge

Drive-in and Canoe-in campsites, shuttle and rentals available for runs above and below the park
