Canoeing — Big Sandy Creek


There are 5 miles of slow moving water from the state line to Bruceton Mills. This section is runnable for most of the year due to the low gradient caused by a dam at Bruceton. It is also possible to put in at Bruceton, go upstream and then back downstream similar to a lake.  A commercial rental business offers boat rentals at Bruceton Mills. Map . (pdf)
