Missouri whitewater, Jacks Fork River

Texas Shannon county, Highway Y bridge to Current River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I     44.6 miles
  This stretch of Jacks Fork River in Texas Shannon County is 44.6 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class I section of whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Missouri is often easier than elsewhere, so better not forget that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. 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. A good workout and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. The wonderful Texas Shannon County
scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This is the only paddling stretch along Jacks Fork River. 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.
