Contribute to Secure Access to Watauga River at Guy Ford Road

Watauga River Access at Guy Ford Road Issue:

The parking area to access the Watauga River at Guy Ford Road is privately owned. This means we could lose access at any time. We have been working to purchase the 2.3 acre property on the downstream river left side of Guy Ford for about 2 years. This is about to come to fruition, securing a permanent public access to the river.

This site provides a put-in to the Watauga Gorge section of the river below Guy Ford Road, as well as a take-out point for Section 3.  In addition, this property will provide river access for fishing, swimming, picnicking, and other activities for residents and visitors alike.

A bit about the process

The race is open category, and consists of class two and three rapids. Participants compete in groups, and the fastest boaters in each heat advance to the finals to determine the overall winner.

The Sarapiqui River originates in the Poas Volcano and feeds the San Juan River, which runs along the border with Nicaragua. It is the second-longest river in Costa Rica. This river is a commercial river for kayaking, white-water rafting, and other activities for the entire region. This river provides all levels of kayaking and rafting.
