There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. Whitewater rafting and kayaking
    spots in Oklahoma are easier than the national norm, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as
well. The put-in location is a short drive from Lawton, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. This is a pretty short section so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. A bit of exercise and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The river winds through the Wichita Mountains and you get great scenery. Whether you're whitewater  
rafting or kayaking in this general area you won't find many other paddling rivers.
