New York whitewater, Treadwell Creek

Delaware county, Case Hill Road Bridge to Route 357 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     5.2 miles
Attention, the brook / Treadwell creek is not paddle-able 80% of the time. The other 20% would be too dangerous. In addition, the brook is going through private land much of the way. The brook is good for fishing, but forget any kind of boating. Says Woody Weerheim

The beautiful scenery of Delaware County and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. This section of Treadwell Creek is 5.2 miles long and is rated by American
    Whitewater as a class I-III section. 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 rivers here are less forgiving. This is
a pretty decent length section, you can easily run it on an afternoon. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors will have you coming back for more. There's camping available near Treadwell Creek. No need to look hard for hotels, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Oneonta, as you can see on the road map further down. There  
are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling spots. When you're paddling down a Catskill Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too.

Briefly about the general area:
Here at Treadwell Creek there are plenty of folks from Franklin; Gilbert Lake State Park is a great place to stretch your legs a bit. This place, the Catskill Mountains, has so much outdoors entertaining stuff.
