Park n' Play near Bellingham, WA?

I'm driving to Bellingham over the weekend from Boise, and was wondering if there were any decent whitewater parks or park and plays in the Bellingham area that I could hit up for a few hours. I don't have much time for a full run and only have room for my playboat.

I appreciate it; any help given will surely be reciprocated if you've ever in the Boise area!

Not much park and play. You're best options are the Bend and Canyon sections of the NF Nooksack about 45mins from town.

There is a nice wave on the canyon section of the N. Fork Nooksack. We call it the Snowwater Wave. It isn't quite park and play, you have to put near (or preferably one rapid above) the bridge near Douglas Fir campground, float down through the first rapid, and at the next rapid, where the river bends right, there is a large rock on the left, forming the eddy that services the wave. T

The wave is nice anywhere from 1000 to about 2000. Above that it gets a bit hard to push into, and flushy.

Take out across the river on the right, walk back to your car through the campground.
