New York whitewater, Oak Orchard Creek

Orleans county, Medina to Lake Ontario section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

On the weekend of halloween I caught a 18-20lbs salmon at the bucket hole. Says Collin Quinter

The scenic beauty of Orleans County and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while will make you glad you came. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in New York are
    harder than the national norm, so better not forget that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. If you hurry you can run this stretch in a day but why not make
it an overnighter, so pack your camp stove. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a pretty small number of paddling rivers. If you're coming from Batavia it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well.

Briefly about the general area:
