Let's talk about Idaho padding . . .


Idaho has more whitewater river miles than anywhere in the lower 48 states. Feast your eyes on this: over 3,000 miles of whitewater! That's just in Idaho.


Idaho Wild Rivers License Plate

Whitewater is so important to the state that Idaho even has a license plate dedicated to wild rivers.


Here's another factoid: Idaho also has more multi-day whitewater trips than anywhere in the lower 48.




Teton River



Teton River. This is the perfect balance to the North Fork of the Payette. The Teton River is a relaxed, easy-going stretch of water with glorous views of the Idaho side of the Tetons.














There are more rivers, of course, but this gives you a picture of the incredible paddling opportunities in the state of Idaho. It truly is the nation's whitewater state!


Plenty of Classes & Opportunities to Enjoy Rivers at Idaho State
