Kansas Paddler's Guide - Vol. 3


Whitewater in Kansas! 

[work in progress]


  1. See the KANSAS PADDLER Home Page (http://www.kansas.net/~tjhittle) for (Kansas USGS) river flow information and Kansas Canoe Association trip information.
  2. For revisions/updates/or additions to the list below,  Email: Webmaster
  3. Remember that all Kansas streams but the Kansas River, Arkansas River, and Missouri River flow over "private property", as interpreted by the Kansas Supreme Court.   Seek permission to float all private streams.  Use your best judgement and extreme caution to avoid the legal consequences of trespass.
  4. This is a compilation of reported Whitewater Play spots in Kansas.  The KPHP takes no responsibility of actual conditions.
  5. Class Difficulty Ratings are subjective. Use your own judgement. There are elements of danger in each of the streams and playspots listed.
  6. Revised: 03/23/04
