Ed Evangelidi is right. Says yukon john

there is a broken out dam just upstream of rt. 93 with easy (but private) access. running the rubble at this dam provides a good gauge of what you will find/need downstream. just remember that this is unposted private property and do not block the road for access by large work vehicles. Says ed evangelidi

The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Morgantown. The average whitewater
    rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master in this state than those in other states, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. Whether you're whitewater
rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of places for that. This section of Beaver Creek in West Virginia is 11 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. You can enjoy this section more if you take your time, so why not pack your camping stuff too. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system,  
the Headwaters along Route 93 to Blackwater River stretch is one of them. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. The nature scenery of Tucker County and the water flowing gracefully down Beaver Creek are reasons enough to come here and paddle. There are nice comfortable hotels here, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.

Briefly about the general area:
Going for a hike on the Plantation Trail is always a magnificent adventure; don't leave Beaver Creek without first paying a visit to Blackwater Falls. During your journey to Beaver Creek you'll meet some folks from Davis for sure.
