CLASS III     0.5 miles
  If you're coming from Springfield it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Ohio are often easier than in other states, so keep in mind that rivers in this state are less demanding. The scenic beauty of Green County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream have people coming
    here. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. This is a very short stretch so you'd better be
prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here. This stretch of Massie's Creek in Ohio is 0.5 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class III section. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good places. This is one of a small number of  
paddling sections in this river system, there are a few others too.
