County road 657 to Highway E section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS I 21.5 miles
This stretch of Courtois Creek is 21.5 miles long and is a class I section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The nature scenery of Missouri and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. Whitewater paddling here in the Ozarks is a great experience. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Missouri is often easier than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are quite
easy. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. This stretch is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit
to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This is the only paddling stretch along Courtois Creek. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people.
