Steuben county, Canisteo to Addison section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     20 miles
  The starting point is not too far from Corning, as you can see on the road map further down. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state are often tougher than in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. If you have the time you
    can make this a two day trip, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. This is one of a small number of paddling sections in this river system, there are a few others too. A good workout and spending some quality time in
nature have people coming from far and near. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are not so many other good places for that around here. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. The Canisteo to Addison section of Canisteo River in New York is 20 miles long and is a class I-II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater.
