River Description

Extended flatwater access paddle from hell: avoid trees, fences, and cows. The payoff? A waterfall with fast bouldery run-out into smaller ledge, followed by a half mile of fun water (on the grounds of private campground, Camp St. Claret). As of last check, the only access is via the long paddle down, as listed here.

An Anonymous paddler provides (2009-03-03)
My buddy and paddled this stretch in July of 2007. The paddle in was brutal and the water was too low to run the waterfall. Once we got to the falls we realized that if there enough water run it, we would have died in the strainers above. The drop is beautiful however, and a real treat for Northern Illinois.

Gage Descriptions

We have no information on any sort of gauge for this run. However, a word of caution comes from an anonymous user who suggested that with enough water to run the falls, the strainers on the lead-in (flatwater/swiftwater paddle) would be extremely dangerous (deadly).
