After crossing small bridge, parking for 3-4 cars available in addition to limited roadside parking. Popular.. redneck beach destination (I mean that affectionately) in summer, extremely quiet in winter. Watch for broken glass in parking areas. Access for kayaks is either above spillway or below. Above is a nice there-and-back paddle, with water between 3-5' and a few deeper 8-10' pockets. Will need to wade a few areas, especially in low flow. From the spillway downriver, the smallmouth fishing is terrific in places. Lots of riffle and small current, no major obstacles on either paddle. Water is at same depth as above the spillway, but this section has more (and slightly deeper) holes. Approximately 3 hours to take out at Halls Hill Pike (fishing liberally). Exit is tricky. Best exit is to left after floating under bridge, will have to park roadside and carry kayaks back to road through a field - also not a bad idea to knock on a door and ask if it would be okay to leave your truck while you float. Watch particularly for snakes through this stretch. Water is very clean (quite near the source of the East Fork) and makes for a beautiful paddle..
