New York whitewater, Moose River

Oneida Lewis county, McKeever to Rock Island section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III     3 miles
  The scenic beauty of Oneida/ Lewis County and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. The
    put-in location is a short drive from Utica-Rome, as you can see on the road map further down. There are so many sections to paddle in this river system, the McKeever to Rock Island section is just one of many. You might
have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This is a pretty short section so better bring some good walking shoes. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of people coming here. When you're paddling down a Adirondack Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. There  
are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. This section of Moose River in Oneida/ Lewis County is 3 miles long and is a class III section of whitewater according to American Whitewater.

Briefly about the general area:
Have a good hiking adventure along the Stone Dam Trail; lots of folks from Forestport come here. So many entertaining things to do here in the Adirondack Mountains, too splendid to be true. While you're here at Moose River you can take a hike along the Forty Mountain Trail, and the best way to spend a winter day is on the slopes of close by McCauley Mountain.
