Idaho Whitewater-Kirkham section

Idaho Whitewater on the Kirkham Hotsprings Stretch!

Are you looking for some family friendly Idaho whitewater? In other words, something you can enjoy with the kiddos? They’ll have a hoot on the Kirkham hotsprings section. And so will you!

The Kirkham section of the South Fork Payette is known for it’s scenery, hotsprings and most importantly Idaho whitewater. Moreover, this section is a fun bouncy ride interspersed with class 2 and 3 rapids. Half way through your trip, you’ll enjoy a soak at Kirkham hotsprings. Worried about getting hungry? We’ve got you covered! Rafters will delight in a riverside lunch prepared by the guide. Meanwhile, you can relax at the hotsprings or on a sandy beach along the way. During the second half of the day, take a leap off a jump rock and swim in a crystal clear swim hole.

What sets this rafting trip apart from other one day whitewater trips in Idaho? In addition to the beautiful clear water and hotsprings, there’s a chance you might not see any other rafters! Furthermore, there are frequent wildlife sighting.

This is the perfect section for the first day of a multi-day Idaho whitewater trip. The Kirkham section floats into our private camp, which is a must see!

Fantastic experience in every way. What a great group of guides under the leadership of the two spunky awesome owners Ginger and Sean. We had fun and got to spend time in the water and hot springs as well as rafting. The pristine river offer both adventure and surprises. Hight five to you all!

Absolutely fantastic experience and well worth the time and money! Guides are experienced at reading the river and have a sense of humor while maintaining a professional atmosphere. Learned a lot about the area as well as had a blast, you should check it out!
