About half dozen fun rapids and a other riffles in the first 2-3 miles. Best to have some river experience to run but since water is shallow, the injury risks are relatively small. Skirt needed if water levels high. Thereafter an easy float, with little navigational challenges. Water generally 3-4 feet deep.

WHERE:

DIRECTIONS:

Put-In: River Creek Campground - not a public put-in but can be arranged by calling ahead to campground. Please check in with owners and ask where to park. Suggested offer of $5 for parking and using access. River Creek has a small store with food and drink available for purchase.

Take-Out: No official or public take-out here, though people have scrambled up sand bank of dredging company on left bank before bridge. Please note you are trespassing if exiting here though the property owner doesn't chase people off as long as you avoid the area during dredging operations. We recommend making the longer trip to River Road (see next section) where the property owners there are OK with limited paddler use.

TIPS & TRICKS

Bring a Map

Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
