Whitewater rafting and kayaking in New York is often tougher than elsewhere, so keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. The natural beauty of New York and the water flowing gracefully down East Canada Creek are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. A good workout and spending
    some quality time in nature will make you glad you came. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great
campgrounds nearby. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. The put-in location is a short drive from Amsterdam, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. This is one of a small number of paddling sections in this river system, there are a few others too.
