Is there a paddling club in the Sedona/Cottonwood area? Says Chris

If you're coming from Prescott it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so keep in mind that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. No matter if
    you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling places. There's camping available near Oak Creek. A stretch of this length does require some preparations, so make sure you pack enough food
along with your camping gear. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. The natural beauty of Coconino/ Yavapai County and the cool fresh water make the trip here worthwhile. Lodging is available near the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car.

A visit to Red Rock State Park when you're here at Oak
