Whitewater Kayaking & SUP

Montgomery Whitewater’s massive, recirculating river system is divided into two channels. Our Creek and Competition Channels include class II-IV whitewater activities.

Perfect for beginners to intermediate paddlers and rafters, the channels mimic a natural river. The 2,200-foot-long Creek Channel is designed for a Class II whitewater experience and is an excellent introduction to whitewater. A step up from the Creek Channel, the 1,600-foot-long Competition Channel is an incredible playground for those with more advanced skills and is ideal for even the novice rafter looking to take on bigger rapids. Both channels intersect in the lower pond to the takeout or back up the conveyor belt for another run!
