Whitewater Rafting

Your Whitewater Adventure Awaits...

Indian Lake is the Whitewater Rafting Capital of New York State. Several rafting companies are available to take you safely from Indian Lake to North River on the Indian and Hudson Rivers.

Running from the dam-controlled put-in site at Indian Lake to North River, this 17 mile gorge trip is one of the greatest single-day rafting trips in America. The trip starts on the Indian River, which drops 150 vertical feet in 3.5 miles before reaching the confluence of the Hudson River. The next 10 miles on the Hudson offer numerous Class III-IV rapids with calm pools in between the rapids. Blue Ledge Rapid, The Narrows, Osprey Nest, Mile Long Rapid, OK Slip Rapid, The Gunsights, Kettle Mountain andl Harris Rift are the common names used by the guides to refer to the different parts of the river. The 17 mile wild water trip drops approximately 650 vertical feet and passes through the heart of the Adirondack Park.
