Provo river below Deer Creek rafting

Post by DanCan on Fri 05 Aug 2011, 3:46 pm

Ok, I'm fishing for info. I've been hooked on whitewater rafting for 6 years now. But I have kids that are younger, 6 years and up, that always want to go 'rafting'. I got to thinking that I might take a gentle float down the Provo with some of them. I've got a Riken 14' oar boat and was thinking we could put in some place a bit below Deer Creek and float down to the South Fork turn off or so.

I've NEVER been on the Provo though so is it more than just a gentle float? We have all the correct safety gear, I just don't want to take my 8 year old on white knuckle rapids... just looking to get out and float along the river.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Deer Creek to Vivian Park is all flat water.

Yes; The Provo directly below Deer Creek is uber-friendly. Just mind the bridges/don't broach- seen well in advance.

The first half of Deer Creek to Vivian park is super scenic; it was nice class II at high water; probably flatter now. You might not fit through the Trestle bridge midway; that would be a good takeout. Below there is mostly class I, and along the highway.

This is popular, and flows in the summer; although its along I-84:

14 ft rafts go though that section all the time. Like said above, be mindful of the bridges. right side or center on both is mellow.
