Alabama whitewater, Johnnies Creek

CHEROKEE county, Canyon Rim Road to Canyon Mouth Park section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV(V)     1.02 miles
  If you're coming from Rome it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The nature scenery of CHEROKEE County and the water flowing gracefully down Johnnies Creek beats anything. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. Getting
    your paddling muscles activated and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling spots. There arenít any
hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This section of Johnnies Creek in Alabama is 1.02 miles long and is a class IV(V) section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. This is a very short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in  
a few times. There are plenty of other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well.

Briefly about the general area:
You'll meet a lot of people from Cave Spring here, and Foster Bend is something you shouldn't miss while you're here. You need to have a look at McGee Bend since you're here at Johnnies Creek. Summertime highs at Johnnies Creek usually tend to be in the 90's. Summer night lows fall down to the 60's. The cold days of the winter come with highs in the 40's, and all through the dark hours in the wintertime at Johnnies Creek temperatures dip to the 20's.
