Click here to browse this area with our interactive map.

Diverse is how we would best describe the paddling in this mountain/prairie province. In the west of the province runs are characterized by beautiful backdrops, continuous rivers and cold water. Everything from mellow multi day floats in national parks to hairy class V creeking is available in the west. As you move further east the gradient drops but there are still plentiful paddling options for those looking to float mellow rivers in really unique surroundings. It is a huge province so don't neglect to look north and south too. A very worthwhile paddling destination in it's own right.

Rec Kayak Trips or Routes

Pincher Creek

Summerview reach
Oldman River - An easy float from Boulder Run down to the Summerview Bridge with good fishing.
Rodeo Grounds Campground to Canyon Bridge
Castle River - This is a nice Grade II river run with some fun practice features just below the campground. After this it is pretty float through an broad incised valley with some riffles. The last corner above the bridge has a tight turn with a hidden ledge on the outside.
Lower Castle
Castle River - This trip does not have the excitement of the Canyon run but it has a lot of smaller sandstone ledges that create wonderful small surfing waves. They can actually be quite big during high water.
Waterton Reservoir Provincial Recreation Area
Waterton Reservoir - Launch at the boat launch in the PRA. There is a small campground . First come first serve.
