Recreation

The Eel River watershed has many opportunities for hiking, camping, kayaking, and more!

Check out this inspiring video of kayakers enjoying some whitewater on the Middle Fork Eel River.

If you’re an experienced paddler with your own gear, we highly recommend Dan Menten’s New School Guide to Northern California Whitewater.

If you’d prefer to have a guide, we recommend Liquid Fusion Kayaking, or AC Fly Fishing if you’re looking to play with some steelhead!
