That's a fair description. IMHO Waterton is a shit-ton of fun and totally worth the hike. There's at least 3 fun lines through every rapid and the lower half deserves lapping.
For the beginners looking at Waterton: If you're having trouble in the Deckers Chutes, Waterton is probably not the place to be. The upper half may be OK. The current goes out into Strontia; lost gear is lost. Be safe, good season ahead.
Also: The park closes to sundown and the Sheriff often stops by around then. He's a nice guy, but reminds me a bit of Mac from Super Troopers.
