New York whitewater, Flint Creek

Ontario county, Phelps Run section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III+(IV)     3 miles
  If you're coming from Seneca Falls it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further down. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside New York you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so don't forget that rivers here are less forgiving. A good workout and just being out on the river for a while have people coming from far and near. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking
    or both, doesn't matter, there are not so many other good spots for that around here. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. And of course,
there are campgrounds nearby. The scenic beauty of New York and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. This is a pretty short section so better bring some good walking shoes. The Phelps Run stretch of Flint Creek is 3 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-III+(IV) section. The Phelps Run stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system.
