Texas whitewater, Rocky Creek

Burnet county, US 183 to Oakalla section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     7.5 miles
Hi Land Owner,
On the offhand chance you may be back to read this, Kayakers are some of the most respectful people in the world. Why would you want to send someone to jail for simply passing thru a navigable stream that runs thru your land? I don't get it. You know, if it's that much of an issue, you could charge people entry or just insist they check in with you first. Most people aren't looking for trouble. Says Paddler

This stretch
    and all others of rocky creek are private. If I see you on the creek you will at the very least go to jail for trespassing. Says Land Owner

The average Texas whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit
easier to master than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers in this state are less demanding. The wonderful Texas scenery and the playfulness of the water beats anything. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood, as you can see on the road map further down. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations  
in advance you're all set. The campgrounds here at Rocky Creek are pretty good. The US 183 to Oakalla stretch of Rocky Creek in Burnet County is 7.5 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II section. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature will have you coming back for more. The US 183 to Oakalla section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. This is a pretty decent length section, it's good length for a morning trip.

Briefly about the general area:
Rocky Creek is not far at all from Briggs.
