South Fork Owyhee River

Elko, Nevada USA

“Places in NV”

The South Fork Owyhee River flows north through the Owyhee desert, joining the river's East Fork in southwestern Idaho. River-running in rafts and kayaks through the steep-walled canyon is the most popular recreational activity from late March through early June. This location is the perfect remote river for kayaking and rafting. Deep-walled canyons lead out onto the high desert. Float trips can continue into Idaho and Oregon and serious whitewater. The river is within a wilderness study area, under consideration for federal protection. Practice scrupulous "Leave No Trace" techniques while exploring the area. The park is open from April until June. Reservation and fees are not necessary for park access. Popular recreational activities include: climbing, fishing, hiking, backpacking, hunting and wildlife viewing.

The directions given are to a bank in downtown Elko....note: unless you enjoy gambling or banks don't come down here. Google map South Fork Owyhee River, and like us, face palm at the realization that it is 48 miles north of where Roadtrippers said it was. (Otherwise great RT experience though! Lol)
