New York whitewater, Rushford Lake Outlet

Allegany county, Rushford Lake to Genesee River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-IV     1 miles
Free camping is available on nearby Rush Creek and Allen Lake State Forests.  These are undeveloped areas, accessible by dirt/gravel roads with no facilities. Says Mason

If you're coming from Batavia it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, as you can see on the road map further down. The Rushford Lake to Genesee River section of Rushford Lake Outlet in New York is 1 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class
    II-IV section of whitewater. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside New York you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so better not forget that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving.
This is a very short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. 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. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a pretty small number of paddling  
places. The scenic beauty of New York and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water beats anything. A good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Rushford Lake to Genesee River section is one of them.
