River Description


(St. Francis tributary)

Two shut-ins, boulder gardens, shoals, and steep bluffs make this clear-water stream a popular run.

MoCreekin’ has some good info about this and other creek runs in Missouri.

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.

A Paddler’s Guide to Missouri (Missouri Department of Conservation, 2003), an updated version of Missouri Ozark Waterways by Oz Hawksley, has good maps.
