Flat/Sheltered Water, River/Creek (Up to Class II)
Number of Portages:
Both portages were around log jams on the first section of the Nation River. They were both very short. A third log jam we just barely managed to paddle through. If you are not a competent paddler then you may want to portage around this third log jam. It is also on the first section of the Nation River.
Be prepared for wind. About 2 hours after leaving our camp on Tchentko Lake, a wind storm came up that created 3 to 4 foot breaking waves. We sat on a rock beach for 8 hours until the sun started to go down enough for us to continue paddling to the next available camp.
On the Nation River watch for sweepers and strainers.
Get a fishing license and take your fishing gear. We caught fish every day. We also found wild onions to add to our fish.
Depending on when you go, be prepared for bugs.
