Alabama whitewater, Mill Creek

Morgan county, Holmes Drake Road to US Route 31 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     4.7 miles
  The scenic beauty of Alabama and the cool fresh water have people coming here. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so better not forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of people
    coming here. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This section is long enough to enjoy a good
non stop paddle, it's good length for a morning trip. The put-in is not too far from Cullman, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost.
