Probably too low to provide any reasonable whitewater experience. (We welcome your comments if you have experience at these flows.) Gauge (163 sq.mi. drainage) lies ~3.5 miles upstream, thus should be fairly accurate.
A project at the site of a former dam has created a short stretch of rather tame but potentially
playable whitewater. Most generally, it will be of interest only to boaters in the immediate
area. (Anyone who has to drive any distance to get to it is likely to be disappointed, and have
better choices closer at hand.)
This is a good place for beginning boaters to practice in moving water. The dam removal project
that created this area was supposed to provide a whitewater play area, but the money seems to
have run out as it does not appear to have been finished and there has been no maintenance of the
Put-in from a park on the south shore (river-left) just east of the bridge. There is a public
restroom for changing.
Take-out on the south shore (river-left) just west of the bridge. A boardwalk (connecting from
the bridge to the end of the run) can be used to hike back up to the put-in.
Details about this and another site on the Red Cedar River can be found HERE.
