New York whitewater, Schoharie Creek

Greene county, Lexington to Prattsville section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     9 miles
Cam you get some stats on the Schoharie Creek from Blenhiem Bridge to Central Bridge ? My husband, friends and I have been kayaking that section for over 3 years. My husband and his friends were doing it in canoes prior to that. You can't do the whole thing in one day. It has to be broke up in sections. But it is so beautiful down through there. It's a mix of white water and calm water. The nature you encounter through there is you can't
    see everyday. Ever have an eagle fly not more then 10 feet away from you, or see a nest of ravens with the young ones screaming for lunch ? Well those are just a few of the things we have seen. Also we've only encountered
1 canoe in the 3 years and they bailed by the rock cliffs in Blenhiem. Says Robin Macdonald

The Lexington to Prattsville stretch of Schoharie Creek in New York is 9 miles long and has been rated as a class I-III section by American Whitewater. The beautiful scenery of New York and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The starting location is a short drive from Kingston,
please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature have a lot of people coming here. The beauty of the Catskill Mountains is a great plus for this river. 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. On this section you do get some distance, good for a one day paddling trip. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large number of good places.
