Information on Roger's Private Idaho
Location: From Poughkeepsie (Sharp County), go north on Highway 58
approximately 1-2 miles. Look for a county road sign
marking Hulett Road on the left. There is also single house
on the left side jsut north of the road. Take this left and
go about 1 mile to low-water bridge. Park on river left
side. Please help keep this area clean when visiting!
Topo Quad(s): N/A
Length: Park and Play
Gauge: The USGS Strawberry River Gauge near Poughkeepsie should be above 2.5
for a low surfable level on the wave. Above 3.7 the surfing is best.
Hazards: Initial inspection shows no rebar as wave is made solely
by existing bedrock. May be shallow at some levels so watch your head.
Description: This is a great park and play wave located just
downstream of the low-water bridge on the Strawberry R.
The wave is relatively wide with a foam pile at levels of 4 feet
and above on river right with glassy surface on the left. Two large
eddies on either side provide plenty of recovery and room to wait in
line. The wave train below the surfing wave has some smaller waves
that some might find entertaining. Higher levels make for
ideal conditions for kayaks and expert open-boaters. As
the level drops, it becomes friendlier to less-skilled
boaters. Thanks to Roger Head for information on his great
