    Creek attract people from near and far. This stretch of Oatka Creek is 3 miles long and is a class II-III section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature
will have you coming back for more. This is a bit of a short stretch so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. The campgrounds here at Oatka Creek are pretty good. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Leroy to Fort Hill section is one of them. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are not so many other good rivers for that around here. There arenít any hotels right nearby  
but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
