River Description


The full length run has seven "waterfalls" & several waves.

According to Kayak 111 "You may not think it, but there is a whitwater creek in Mississippi! It is the Okatoma creek, it offers three class I falls and chutes. If the water is right, surfing is possible. The trip can be completed in three and one half hours. It depends on how much time you spend swimming in the water. If you live near by it is certainly worth the drive."

The canoe rental at Sanford says good levels for floating are 7-10 ft. at the Sanford bridge gauge. Floated upper section today at 8.50 ft. and that level is just about perfect.

All major strainers removed from river (at least for the first half of the run to Fairchild's Landing)

Where can I put in and take out to run this creek for as little river time as possible (I will be on a tight schedule when I'm in the area) but still catch both class II rapids?
