River Description

Note: The combination of Steep banks and lots of dead red oak trees (thanks to the borer beetle infestation) tend to clog the creek with wood from time to time, so keep a look out.

Waterfalls and narrow slides abound on this creek. Scout before committing to any drop.

Checkout the lake spillway for added excitment.

See the description in the Ozark Whitewater Page.
