This is a pretty short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. 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. The Davis Creek to Oswegatchie River stretch of Boland Creek in New York is 2.3 miles long and is a class
