Kelly`s Whitewater Park

Kelly`s Whitewater Park

Kelly`s Whitewater Park has been recognized by many kayaking athletes as one of the premier whitewater parks in the country. Kelly`s opened in June 2010 and has hosted 2 National Kayak Championships. Kelly`s is gaining in popularity with stand up paddle boarders and river surfers. In addition, tubers and canoeists of all ages can enjoy the whitewater features of the park. Kelly`s is home of the first bronze statue of an American soldier that perished in Iraq, and also features a Gallery with annually changing exhibits. Visitors can comfortably stroll along the 2.5 mile river trail "The Strand", view the action in the river from the 3.4 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds or walk across the bridge to Rock Island to relax by the river. Kelly`s is also one of the premier sites in Valley County for trout habitat. The fishing enthusiast can be found enjoying the early morning and late summer days fishing from the banks or man-made island.

Cascade Golf Course

Cascade Golf Course

One of the most Scenic golf adventures in the Northwest. Nestled away in the mountains along beautiful Lake Cascade just an hour and a half away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Where else can you play a round of golf and look up from any shot and see the beautiful picturesque view of a lake with snow capped mountains. Even though we are a nine-hole course we have 4 sets of tees set up to play eighteen holes with a different shot to the green on each round. We are a course that welcomes the young Jr. golfer to the young at heart. There is a challenge on every hole with sloping fairways and greens that are difficult to read. Blind shots off the tee box to the fairway`s and tee shots over the water will challenge even the low handicap golfer.
