Maryland whitewater, Beaver Creek

Washington county, Beaver Creek Park N Ride (I-70) to Alternate Route 40 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I(II)     4.5 miles
I live off of Beaver Creek.  this is not suitable for kayaking...  there are numerous sections between alt 40 and the drop in area that are not passable.  PLus, there is a section blocked off at a private residence and several one lane bridges not high enough to pass under even by kayak.

Some additional information that you might be interested in about Beaver Creek is that it is a true limestone spring fed creek.  That means
    that it has warm water in the Winter and cool water in the Summer.  The upwelling of water through the limestone bedrock creates a unique ecosystem in Maryland with freshwater shrimp, watercress, and lots of well fed trout. 
In Winter, this stream can be 10 degrees warmer than any other water and this really attracts wildlife, especially ducks.  This is a wonderful little creek to paddle in a 9-10 foot kayak.  I guide trout fishing on this stream and it is one of my favorite creeks in Maryland.  It holds some trout over 6 lbs. throughout the year.  I do not reccommend kayaking this creek in April because there are lots of people fishing for trout.  If you would like  
more free information or to book a scenic paddle or trout fishing day, feel free to contact me at 301-432-8469 or visit my website at http://www.fishnfloatadventures.com Says Dan Hodkinson (see picture)
