Whitewater in Idaho
There is so much whitewater in Idaho that Idaho is often ranked in the “Best of” categories by outdoor magazines. It is such a big deal that Boise built its own Whitewater Park right in the center of town.
One of the first adjustable river waves in the world, kayakers, surfers, and boogie boarders take to the rapids throughout the year to catch a wave. Located along the Greenbelt next to Esther Simplot Park, the whitewater park has ample parking, dressing rooms to change gear, and plenty of spectator viewing areas to watch all the action as riders crash through the waves.
In the summer the weather reaches the perfect temperature to set the stage for some wild whitewater adventure, whether kayaking for the day or river rafting for the week. Just a short drive past Eagle, Idaho, along scenic route 55, you’ll quickly find yourself driving along the Payette River. Locally known as “The Main,” this section of the Payette River provides varying levels of challenging whitewater up to class III rapids, while the North and South Forks provide adrenaline pumping class IV and V rapids. The river offers both abundant excitement and relaxation. The Class IV Middle Fork of the Salmon River outside of Stanley, Idaho made the 10 Best Whitewater Rafting Destination IN THE WORLD by tripsavvy.com in 2019.
With several rafting adventure companies in the area it’s easy to reserve trips lasting from a couple of hours to several days with memories that will last a lifetime.
Yes, whitewater in Idaho takes river sports to a whole new level.
