Highway 19 to Highway AM section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS I 107.6 miles
The beautiful scenery of Gasconade Franklin County and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. This section of Bourbeuse River in Gasconade Franklin County is 107.6 miles long and is a class I section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Missouri are easier than the national norm, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners.
A section like this is is of course not run in a single day, so make sure you pack enough food along with your camping gear. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end
up sleeping in your car. Getting some good exercise and just being out on the river for a while have people coming from far and near.
