The Cedarburg City Park stretch of Cedar Creek is 2.3 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II-III section. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. The nature scenery of Wisconsin and the playfulness of
    the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so better not forget that many runs in this state are very easy.

This is one of a small number of paddling sections in this river system, there are a few others too. This is a bit of a short stretch so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times.
