River Description

(St. Francis tributary)
A Canoeing & Kayaking Guide to the Ozarks (formerly Ozark Whitewater) by Tom Kennon (3rd edition, Menasha Ridge Press) has a good description of the run. MoCreekin’ has some good info about this and other creek runs in Missouri.

Turkey Creek was first run on Friday, 24 December 1982, by Herm Smith, Kevin Olson, Janet Burnside, and Paul Kreuet. An account of the run, written by Olson & Smith, appeared in the May 1983 issue of the River Log, newsletter of the Arnold Whitewater Association.

Rapid Descriptions


Gage Descriptions

The USGS gauge is a crude indicator for runnability of this small creek. Instead, look for 1" of rain on wet ground within 6 hours at Roselle rain gage.
