Missouri whitewater, James River

Greene Christian Stone county, Highway 125 bridge to Galena Y bridge section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I     61.6 miles
  The natural beauty of Greene Christian Stone County and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile. This stretch of James River is 61.6 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class I section. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The average Missouri whitewater rafting or kayaking
    river tends to be easier to run than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are quite easy. A stretch this long is of course too much for a one day trip,
so it looks like you will be camping out. Getting some good exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will have you coming back for more. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp.
