North Carolina whitewater, Yadkin River

Caldwell Wilkes Yadkin county, North Carolina Route 1001 to US Route 64 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     29 miles
I am looking for the area of the Yadkin river in southeastern Wilkes County at the mouth of a creek that flows into the Yadkin, does anyone know this area and the name of the creek that flows into it? Thank you Says Karen Collins

This section of Yadkin River is 29 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class I-II section. The average North Carolina whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master
    than those in other states, so better not forget that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. The starting location is a short drive from Lexington-Thomasville, please print out a copy of the road map further
down the page so you won’t get lost. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. You can enjoy this stretch more if you take your time, so why not pack your camping stuff too. There are no other sections to paddle along Yadkin River than the North Carolina  
Route 1001 to US Route 64 section. The beautiful scenery of Caldwell/Wilkes/Yadkin County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water will make you feel great.

Briefly about the general area:
This is a popular place for people from Linwood. Through the days of summer at Yadkin River temperatures are commonly in the 80's. Once the sun is down it dips down to the 60's. The winter brings highs down to the 40's; throughout the dark hours in the winter at Yadkin River temperatures plunge to the 20's. Yadkin River sees pretty high levels of rainfall. Most of the rain falls throughout March, and November on the other hand is the driest.
