Ohio whitewater, Clear Fork of Mohican

Ashland county, Pleasant Hill Reservoir to Black Fork section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     4.9 miles
The Clear Fork is maybe a II at flood levels in the spring! This section has very low water levels, and is full of campers going tubing. Says Jennifer

The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Ohio are often easier than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that the rivers in this state are less demanding. The natural beauty of Ohio and the cool fresh water are reasons enough to come here and
    paddle. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are not so many other good spots for that around here. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem
but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The campgrounds here at Clear Fork of Mohican are pretty good. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more.
