Alabama whitewater, Brushy Creek

Winston county, Brushy Lake to FS 255 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS I(II)     10 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so don't forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. The put-in location is a short drive from Decatur, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The nature scenery of Winston County and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if
    you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so go ahead
and pack your camping stuff. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a pretty small number of paddling rivers. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are sure to keep you coming back for more. The Brushy Lake to FS 255 stretch of Brushy Creek is 10 miles long and it is classified as a class I(II) section by American Whitewater.
