Of Special Interest
A natural forest setting on the banks of the Green River at the upstream end of the Green River gorge makes this a popular put-in for kayakers and rafters seeking whitewater thrills and adventure. This is water for the experienced whitewater enthusiast only and definitely not for the beginner or casual rafter. The Green River is usually in the top ten steelhead rivers in Washington, adding to our popularity, especially in the winter months.

Activities
Camping, picnicking, rafting, kayaking, fishing, nature study, and hiking.
