Oklahoma whitewater, Flint Creek

Delaware county, US 412 to Fidler's Bend section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II(IV)     1 miles
The one mile reach of Flint Creek described is accurate in that the US HWY 412 access is public access but the take out points referenced are private and not available for public use.

The posted information suggests the private take outs listed by name and GPS coordinates are available to use by request, this is not the case.

One of the take outs is gated, locked and heavily posted with conspicuous no trespassing signs and the
    other is a private collection of cabins having no interest in public access by favor or fee. Phone numbers for each location are no longer in service or are unattended.

Persons wishing to float the one mile section
of Flint Creek your site describes must be prepared to continue six additional miles on the Illinois River to the next available public access at Chewey Bridge. The shuttle is 18 miles on state hwy's and county road.

The starting location is a reasonable drive from Tahlequah, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often easier than elsewhere, so if you're visiting
here do keep in mind that many runs in this state are very easy. The US 412 to Fidler's Bend stretch of Flint Creek in Oklahoma is 1 miles long and is a class II(IV) section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great attractions for lots of people. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. There are some good sections to paddle in this river system, the US 412 to Fidler's Bend section is one of them.
