  • I use to think I lived on a river until I visited this one. Very nice and real quiet this time of the year. A pleasure to have visited it.  more »
  • It is that shallow. Good water flow. We rented a couple kayaks and did a four hour float. Time was right on the money. Easy in and out. Beautiful scenery while on the water.  more »
