In terms of the most mind-blowing bang for your paddling buck, this is probably the best creek I’ve ever been on, anywhere. Seriously. Constant riffles, a fun Class II ledge in the beginning, jaw-dropping geology, caves, cliffs and bluffs and almost no development. All condensed in six spectacular miles, Carroll Creek may well be the single prettiest and most fun stream in all of Illinois. (Miles Paddled)

The Bridgewater Inn can accommodate paddlers and kayaks with a shuttle back from the bridge or Mississippi so no one misses the trip!
