Highway 125 to county road off Highway M section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS I 15.7 miles
This section of Finley Creek is 15.7 miles long and has been rated as a class I section by American Whitewater. The natural beauty of Missouri and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile. Getting some good exercise and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master in this state than those in other states, so
if you're not from around here don't forget that a lot of the rivers in this state are suitable for beginners. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. If you hurry you can run this stretch
in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so pack your sleeping bag. Finley Creek doesn't have a lot of paddling sections, the Highway 125 to county road off Highway M section is the only one. The river winds through the Ozarks and you get great scenery. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
