The name of this river is no lie, as the scenery, fishing, hiking and camping opportunities throughout the float are fantastic.

This is a fantastic float for the first timer, less experienced, families, or anyone looking for a more relaxed float with very little technical issues on the river. Great fishing, hiking, scenery, camping and all around great river.

The Goodnews River flows southwest from Goodnews Lake down the Goodnews Valley. The upper portion of the Goodnews River has a slow current, increasing in the middle section with no real obstructions along the route. Camping spots are in abundance all along the river during normal water conditions.
