Ohio whitewater, Caesar Creek

Warren county, Caesar Creek Lake to Little Miami River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II+     2.8 miles
Caesar creek was named after Caesar a African man captured and adopted by the Shawnee (The Frontiersman, by Alan Eckert).  The creek was a favorite hunting place for Caesar, and still bears his name to this day. Caesar never tried to escape the Shawnee but did help Boone escape showing Boone the best way back into Kentucky territory. If the water is low forget it go home. Dagger Dave and I once pushed the limit on low water on Caesar and had
    to drag that 3 miles. There is a gauge on AW. I live in Knoxville, Tn but have kayaked all over the country. Ohio has some very nice streams along with neighboring states just cause its ''easy'' doesn't mean it's no fun,
I have been a raft guide in Tennessee and West by God Virgina, for 12 years this season 2010, I have ran Caesar's 4 times and think it's as pretty and nice as any other out there it is all in you head how much you enjoy, Russell Fork, Caesar's, Gauley, Nolichucky, the whitewater varies, but what you get out of the river and the moment doesn't change a bit... see ya at the Put In Says Tim Richmond

Caesar creek is at most class 2. I
work as a river guide in Tennessee and West Virgina, and Caesar's a pretty run lots of history with the shawnee. Says Tim Richmond

This can be run only when the USGS gauge is 7' or more, or when the ouflow from the dam is about 400 cfs. Says Gwen English

There are wave trains of approximately 2 feet in height. It is overall just a fun long set rapids for 3 miles Says Jay W.

If you're coming from Dayton it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further down. The Caesar Creek Lake to Little Miami River section of Caesar Creek is 2.
