Slave Episode 6: Playground, Mountain Portage Rapids

The Playground really lives up to its name! A classic Park & Play spot at the end of the Mountain Portage Rapids. It features a nice class III wave-train, perfect for beginners and also a really friendly hole, in which all hole-moves are possible and also with super easy eddy-service. Therefore most of the beginner kayak-sessions of the Fort Smith Paddleclub are held at the playground, as well as the yearly most prestigious Slave River Paddlefest. On the big peninsula right next to the play-hole there is enough place for many spectators and the one or other bonfire. Finally the biggest pro of the playground feature, the hole runs at every water-level of the Slave!
