Below Ogden Play Park


This is a mellow class II float that begins at the Ogden Kayak Park and continues down under several bridges to the confluence of the Ogden and the Weber Rivers at about 21st street. It could be a good run for a beginner at lower flows, but usually it is run only if you're looking for that lost playboat. At the confluence there can be a distinct difference in the water colors of the Ogden and Weber with squirelly eddy lines and whirlpools. The river turns sharply to the West and continues at a slow pace to a very large diversion structure at 17th Street and 1200 W. Portage river right. Follow the river to the North West a short ways until you reach a river wide low head dam right after the bridge at 1900 West. Portage on either side of the river. The river gets tamer the farther you go, eventually becoming Class I. Below about 2500 West the river becomes a stagnant lake during the summer and fall because a dam is put up around 4600 W. that backs up water for miles.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Weber River are between a bare minimum of 400cfs and a high of 2,000cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 10137000, the Weber River At Ogden Remember only watercraft are permitted at Below Ogden Play Park.
