Payette River: Beehive Bend

The Main Payette River is a classic Class III, pool-drop river. Beehive Bend serves as a take-out point primarily for the Main Payette River but can also be used for longer trips starting on the South Fork of the Payette. Most boaters put in at the USFS ramp at Banks, Idaho (the confluence of the North Fork and South Fork Payette Rivers). Beehive Bend has a gravel parking area, two vault toilets, a changing room, trash receptacles, and a concrete raft drying area. Ideal flows for this section is between 2,000-10,000 cfs. This is a fee parking area - $3.00/day or $20.00 season pass for the Payette River System. Day passes are available on-site.
