Owner description: Great place to catch Class III or Class V rafting runs.
Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of the cleanest, most beautiful salmon/steelhead rivers in America. It is the only river on California's Pacific Coast that has no mud. It is a short, purely granite riverine system without pollution of any kind. All runoff into the river is filtered through Redwood, Douglas Fir, and pine forests.

Anywhere along the Smith is beautiful. Popular for fishing, canoeing, Kayak, or tube. Just a gorgeous place to visit. Camp at Jed Smith or just visit while in the area and you won't be disappointed. I live here and visit often.

Stopped here on the way south, and spent a couple of hours. Kids had fun playing in the water and it was an absolutely beautiful spot.

The Smith River is the clearest, most beautiful scenic river I know of. It is worth the winding drive for the views, fishing and swimming. As a bonus it is only a few miles from the Southern Oregon Coast...even more of natures beauty!
