Deer Creek launch is a main put-in spot for the Class III-IV, "Staircase" section of the South Fork Payette River. many boaters will launch here to avoid the three miles of calm water from the Confluence Site. The site is essentially a very broad gravel area adjacent to the Banks-Lowman Highway. The facilities include a steep, steel and wood boat ramp, portable toilet, and information kiosk. 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.
