Missouri whitewater, Pickle Creek

Ste. Genevieve county, Hawn State Park Road to Hawn State Park picnic area section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS III-IV     2.4 miles
  The put-in location is a short drive from Farmington, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Missouri are often more forgiving than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of spots for
    that. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. Whitewater paddling here in the Ozarks is a great experience. There are some good stretches to paddle in
this river system, the Hawn State Park Road to Hawn State Park picnic area stretch is one of them. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The Hawn State Park Road to Hawn State Park picnic area section of Pickle Creek in Missouri is 2.4 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class III-IV section. The scenic beauty of Ste. Genevieve County and  
the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile. This is a somewhat short section so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby.

Briefly about the general area:
Big Spring Hollow is a nice place to take a look at close by, and why not take a refreshing hike along the John J Audubon Trail. Not enough hours in a day to enjoy the Ozarks. Hawn State Park is a pleasant spot to explore on a lovely day, and a spree to La Hae Spring will fill your soul with great feelings. A river like this is too good to miss.
