The Whitewater River meanders through the bottomlands of the Whitewater Wildlife Management Area, and the upper part is a designated trout steam.
There are no campsites or rest areas, and users should be sensitive to the ecological integrity of the river.
See the Zumbro River for more information about this area's landscape, wildlife, and history.
There are no major rapids. About rapids classes.
The lower stretch of the river between the towns of Beaver and Weaver is not suitable for novice paddlers because of the many trees and occasional log jams.
