Columbia county, FL SR 131 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III     0.3 miles
  If you're coming from Lake City it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, as you can see on the road map further down. This is an extremely short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the FL SR 131 section is one of them. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. No need to look hard for hotels, but if you donít
    have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The FL SR 131 section of Falling Creek in Florida is 0.3 miles long and has been rated as a class III section by American Whitewater. A good workout and just hanging
out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here.
