North Carolina whitewater, Stone's Creek

Orange county, Pleasant Green Dam to Eno River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

The nature scenery of Orange County and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good rivers for that around here. Getting some good exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors
    are sure to keep you coming back for more. There are many good hotels to choose from, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. The put-in location is a short drive from Durham, as you can see on the road map
