Greg has cancelled the group campsite as their is too little water (<10 cms), too little rain in the forecast. He will be contacting you with options shortly.
Registration will open after our AGM, on March 19th.
Located North of Hinton on Hwy 40 the Wildhay River is a great early season warmup and training river for paddlers that at a minimum are already very comfortable on class I rivers doing eddy turns, ferries and wet exits. We have booked the Wildhay Group campsite ($70/camp unit, cut costs share a tent), which is just off the river (on the road to Rock Lake), and divides the upper run (Class II+) from the lower run (Class I-II) so there is a variety of paddling options. The group site has a big cook shelter, fire pit, picnic tables and toilets but otherwise is off the grid. Also, Gregg Lake, Cache Lake and Graveyard Lake are all within a 20 minute drive for those who wish a lake paddle, or must have power at their campsite and showers down the road.
This is a narrow and fast river with the upper section having several sharp corners, boulder gardens and small partial ledges. The lower section, finishing at Hwy 40, straightens out and slows down thus making it a good training run for those just tasting Class II water.
- These river runs are for white water kayaks and canoes with full flotation, float bags required.
- Dress assuming you will swim in cold rivers; wet or dry suit and carry extra dry clothes with you in a water proof bag.
